Braai broodjies (sandwiches) recipe

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes


white bread slices

soft butter

cheese, grated

tomato, sliced

onion, sliced

mushrooms, sliced and fried


tomato relish


1 Butter the slices of bread on one side.

2 Make sandwiches with your own combination of ingredients, keeping the buttered side of bread facing outwards.

3 Try the traditional filling of grated cheese, sliced tomato and sliced onion or try a different combination like grated cheese, mushrooms and onion; pesto and cheese; tomato relish and cheese; pesto, mushrooms and cheese; or pesto, cheese and tomato.

4 Put the sandwiches into a braai grid. Cook them over low to medium hot coals on the braai until the cheese has melted and the bread is crisp and golden.
