Takeaway Wednesday: Braaibroodjies

Takeaway Wednesday: Braaibroodjies

Jaco Duvenhage's braaibroodjie recipe will add the perfect finishing touch to any braai. 

Jacaranda FM/MorneJK

This week on the Scenic Drive, Rian set out to find the best braaibroodjies in the Jacaranda FM broadcast area. Many of our listeners responded, but only one received an overwhelming number of votes.

Jaco Duvenhage of Rietvalleirand, Pretoria makes a mean braaibroodjie. He graciously shared the list of ingredients that he uses to prepare the dish. 


  • White bread
  • Onions
  • Tomatoes
  • Cheese and biltong spread
  • Chutney
  • Mayonnaise
  • Salt
  • White pepper

Jaco wanted to make sure he served the freshest braaibroodjies possible, which is why he cooked them at the Jacaranda FM studios - on his own braai stand!

The team remarked that the sandwich was "delicious, but not overwhelming".  A winning recipe, indeed.
