The highlight of any braai is debatable, but there will always be someone that asks where the braai broodjies are. This braai broodjie recipe will give you a mouthwatering delight with a rosemary infusion.
The Traditional Braai Broodjie
The traditional braai broodjie has thinly sliced tomato and onion, salted and covered in grated cheese, all between two slices of sandwich bread and buttered on the outside. It has however become common practice to play around with the toppings, adding or swopping for things like sweet pepper, avo or even something sweet. An important step not to forget is to butter your braai broodjies on the outside. This will add to the golden crisped finish of the crush and help act as a non-stick layer as well.
