Traditional braaibroodjie

Rate this recipe

This is the traditional way to build a braaibroodjie. The original braaibroodje can be served as a main meal or as a side dish with meat, and it can be braaied for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can also enjoy it cold the next day in a lunchbox. If one of your family members likes their braaibroodjie without one of the ingredients, then build theirs without that ingredient. Just make sure you cut off a small corner of their braaibroodjie while it's on the braai, so you know which one is theirs when you're ready to serve them.
