Rolled Braai Broodjie
No fire indaba is complete without the trusty braai broodjie. We’ve asked Mat to share his take on the traditional crispy, crunchy, cheesy must-have…and the result is, well, ayoba!
These little guys are perfect for a bush breakfast braai while watching the sunrise or snack on them as a starter, cold beer in hand, to warm up your mates’ taste buds.
- Mrs Balls (this is the magic stuff)
- Bread (white or brown)
- Salt and Pepper
- Then just add what makes your braai broodjie special
- Roll each piece of bread flat with a rolling pin (you might get some strange looks, but this is a must).
- Throw some of Mrs Balls in the mix – don’t be shy!
- Add the pre-braai’d bacon.
- Lay the cheese.
- Add some salt and pepper.
- Roll it all together and skewer with toothpicks.
- Throw on medium heat.
- Turn often, and wait for the bread to toast to your perfection.
- Take off the braai, slice in half and tuck in!
