An authentically South African recipe for Braai-broodjies (Barbecued Sandwiches) to make on the braai. Cheesy and delicious!
6 slices bread (white or brown)
Approximately 3 tablespoons softened butter to spread over the bread
1 onion, raw and finely sliced
2 to 3 onions, fried until caramelized (see notes below)
2 tomatoes, sliced
Sliced or grated cheese
Salt and grinded black pepper to season
Chutney and / or mayonnaise
Fresh herbs such as basil, parsley chives or chopped coriander
Spread butter on both sides of the bread slices.
Placing tomato and onion slices on half of the slices, season with salt and pepper, or seasoning of your taste, and top with cheese.
Add optional sauces such as mayonnaise and chutney.
Cover with the remaining slices of bread.
Coat a clean grid lightly with Spray and Cook or cooking oil, place the sandwiches inside a barbeque grid (see comments), and slowly toast them until they are golden brown.
Serve before it cools down.
