I Love This and That: Braai broodjies

Tuesday, December 4, 2012

Braai broodjies

In South-Africa we make a sandwich that we put on the grid when we braai... we call it "braai broodjies" or translated in english "barbecued sandwich".  They are so simple but yet so yummy.  

What you need:
  • Tomato {thinly sliced}
  • Onion {thinly sliced}
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Spreadable butter
  • White bread {or brown}

First step is to butter your bread, both sides.  Then turn them over so that the buttered sides face to the outside.

 Then you add a good helping of cheese.

Depending on the size of your tomato, add about 3 slices of tomato.

Salt and Pepper to taste. 

Then the onion rings.

End off with another good helping of cheese.

And close the sandwich.

The easiest to braai these is in a grill that you close it in... some people even tie them with a string so that it doesn't fall apart when turned on the fire.

Recommended that you braai them last.  Coals should not be too hot, should just be enough heat for the cheese to melt and the bread to get some colour.  

Some people spread some chutney on the sandwich, but it MUST be Mrs. Balls! What we usually do is do half with and half without chutney, and the ones with chutney we cut off one small corner :-)

While you are making some braai broodjies... let me teach you some Afrikaans {my home language} a word used alot is "LEKKER"

adjective (S. African slang) delicious, tasty, luscious, choice, savoury, palatable, dainty, delectable, mouthwatering,yummy (slang), scrumptious (informal), appetizing, toothsome, ambrosial We had a really lekker meal. (www.thefreedictionary.com)

Trust me these are yummy, getting "hungry" as I'm doing this post ;-)
