Cut bread length ways. You will get about 6 slices out of a loaf, but you'll only be using four.

Spread the slices with the garlic butter.

Cut the tomatoes in slices and add to two halves of bread. top with some chopped spring onion, salt and pepper and finish off with the olives.

Top with the mozzarella cheese. Spread the chutney on both sides of the other halves of bread and assemble like a sandwich.

Place in between your braai hand grid and grill over the hot coals until bread is toasted and cheese is melted.

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
