INSPIRATION

Tio Jorge ® Hawaiian Tostones by MIC Food are perfect for high volume foodservice. The flavor is as good as the fresh product with an incredible texture. Crispy on the outside, yet still moist in the inside. The Tostones make for a great bun for a chorizo burger. We all love a good toasted bun, but if you’re as slammed as you probably are, you’re always looking for ways to free up some room on the flattop. Searing buns seems to take up an incredible amount of space. This is an alternative for a quick pickup, (only fries in about 3 minutes from frozen) and gives you the same crispy exterior and soft interior to soak up all the moisture in your sandwich that you look for in your favorite bun. One of the best parts: they are incredibly cost effective! Using these Tostones as a bun gives a fun option for your clientele looking to try something delicious and different.”
