How does a grilled braaibroodjie wrapped in bacon sound? What about a smoky sandwich stuffed with Brie and caramelised onion? Or a savoury smoked snoek braai sarmies? If we’ve got your attention, you’ll appreciate these new ways with bread on the coals.
4 TIPS FOR BETTER BRAAIBROODJIES:
- Don’t use artisanal breads. Opt for more solid loaves that won’t crumble and fall apart on the grid.
- Do butter both sides of the bread, as this will keep the sandwich moist.
- Don’t forget to add salt and freshly ground black pepper to the fillings.
- Do grate your cheese as this will help it melt evenly.
If the thought of thickly sliced ciabatta stuffed with Cheddar cheese and red pepper jelly – with some bacon thrown in for good measure – gets your taste buds tingling, this is the recipe for you.
BRIE AND CARAMELISED ONION BRAAIBROODJIE
Class things up with a creamy wedge of Brie instead of Cheddar. The result is a cheesy, gooey chargrilled sandwich. The red onion marmalade adds an extra punch of sweetness.
SMOKED SNOEK BRAAIBROODJIES
Get a double dose of smoky goodness by using smoked snoek instead of cheese. Spice up your sandwich with spring onions, coriander and apricot chutney for a little dose of sweetness.
