Ingredients for 4 people:

- 16 slices of crumb bread, trimmed (without crust)
- 2 slices of thick white ham (2cms)
- 4 bananas not too ripe
- 1 good glass of Amber Rum
- cayenne or Espelette pepper salt (or spicy oil)

Progression of the recipe:

1) Turn on the plancha.

2) On your board cut your 2 slices of ham into 4 squares each (8 pieces) and clear on a plate.

3) Peel your bananas and slice them into thin slices and place them on a plate.

4) On the griddle set up your 16 slices of sandwich bread and toast the 1 minute on each side when they have taken on colour, clear them on a plate.

5) On one side of the Plancha dispense your banana slices, salt and pepper with cayenne or a little spicy oil, drizzle with amber rum, stir well for 1 minute and spread them on the side.

6) Install the 8 ham squares on the other side of the Plancha and just heat them for 20 seconds on each side.

Assembly of your crunches:

Put your toasts back on the griddle and spread all the roasted banana slices over the 16 pieces.

Then on 8 only add your ham squares and cover them then with the other 8, press a little on top so that the flavors mix.

Cut your "bites" diagonally and push in a small spade to hold and surprise your guests with this simple little recipe.

Serve with a small glass of very fresh agricultural rum or a good Bandol rosé, for example.
