When rugby met food: Welsh rarebit vs South African braaibroodjies

On Saturday, 17 October the Springboks will take on Wales at the Rugby World Cup 2015 quarter finals. And because we love our food with a side of healthy competition, why not compare a dish considered Welsh with a South African classic? For ‘kicks’, you know…

Keeping things local and lekker, what better rival than braaibroodjies to knock the socks off of Wales? But with a twist, of course. Hannah Lewry takes it up a notch by wrapping them in bacon and adding Cheddar and red-pepper jelly for something truly, er, scrum-ptious.

So, which of these sarmies would you rather tuck into while watching the game on Saturday, patriotic bias aside?
