Got biltong? Ditch the platter with these 7 delectable ideas

From some fresh ways to snack to infusing that smokey biltong flavour into a whole (and wholesome) meal, it’s all here.


7 Delectable ideas with biltong

There’s more than one way to enjoy your favourite SA snack and we’ve rounded up the best of them. Now, you can have your biltong and eat it… 7 different ways.

1. Take a biltong-and-bacon dip

We’re talking cream cheese. We’re talking biltong powder. We’re talking Dijon mustard and crispy bacon. We’ve stopped talking, now, because we’re a parmesan breadstick-deep into this dip.

2. Popcorn with butter or biltong? Both!

Get fancy with your microwave popcorn by adding grated peanut brittle, a generous sprinkle of biltong powder, and tossing it with butter until everything is coated and ready to be devoured.

3. Nachos with a local biltong twist

There’s nothing standard about these nachos. We’ve added vine tomatoes, Angus sliced biltong plus all the Cheddar cheese. Serve with dollops of crème fraîche or cream cheese, fresh coriander and lime wedges. Yum!
