The secret to Abigail's ultimate braaibroodjie recipe? There are two: white pepper, and a mix of mayo and butter on the outside. Don't be afraid to finish them in the oven if the fire is too hot, and the cheese is not fully melted inside.
- 8 slices white bread
- 1 cup Cheddar cheese, grated
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
- 8 slices tomato
- 8 onion, slices
- white pepper, to taste
- onion salt, to taste
- 6 T butter, softened
- 4 T good-quality mayonnaise
Divide the cheese between 4 slices of bread, then top the cheese with the tomato and onion.
Season with white pepper and onion salt. Top with the remaining slices of bread.
Butter the outside of the sandwiches, then spread with mayo.
Place in a braai sandwich grid and cook over medium coals on both sides until golden brown and the cheese is oozing.
If you’re making them on the stovetop, cook in a cast-iron pan over a medium heat. Finish off in the oven if the cheese is not fully melted.
