Breakfast Braaibroodjie

Posted in Braai, Food on April 12, 2012 by ribshackred

Why wait for lunch or dinner to have a braai, when you can do it in the morning. What better way to start the weekend than with fire and a breakfast braaibroodjie. Enjoy!



  • cheese
  • tomato
  • onion
  • chutney
  • salt & pepper
  • butter
  • eggs (baked sunny side up in a pan)



The braaibroodjie is arguably the highlight of any braaing experience. Many South Africans braai meat simply as an excuse to also have braaibroodjies. The traditional braaibroodjie is done by making a sandwich with cheese (I prefer aged cheddar), tomato, onion, chutney, salt & pepper with butter on the outside. Braai this sandwich in a closed grid over very mild coals until the outsides are golden brown and the cheese is melted. If you’re having a breakfast braai then bake some eggs sunny side up in a pan on the braai or stove, and when your braaibroodjies are finished gently pull them open and insert one egg into each.

You now have a breakfast braaibroodjie.


Braai quote of the day… ‘It’s my party and I can braai if I want to!’ Never mind the weather, as long as we’re together!
