Ultimate Braai Broodjie minus the Braai

I consider myself to be relatively tough. Apparently living in Africa will do this to you, but I rather think its more to do with growing up left-handed, in an obviously right-handed world (you try writing in a lever arch file with your left hand). So I’m sad to say that my toughness was recently really put to the test, and I had to relent to an inevitable Highveld thunderstorm, and abandon all hopes of having a lekker braai and trying out a recipe we came across for what promised to be one awesome braai bread! But looking back, I suppose it was all for the better, as having to postpone this recipe also conveniently mean’t we didn’t have to share it with anyone.

Gourmet Toasties:

Ingredients:

  •  1 Ciabatta loaf

Camembert and onion marmalade filling:

  • Walnut and rocket pesto (from Pesto Princess);
  • Fresh rocket;
  • Red onion rings;
  • Onion marmalade;
  • Rolls of soft cheese with black pepper;
  • Sliced camembert.

Firstly half the ciabatta bread (stick with your Woolies faithful here), and remove some of the inside to make a small hollow in both sides of the bread. Spread the pesto on the bottom half, add the rocket and then the red onion rings. Then layer the cheeses. Then spread the onion marmalade liberally on the inside of the top half. Cover with the top half of the bread, and press down firmly.

Wrap in tin foil, and braai over indirect heat, or bang it into the oven until the bread is warmed through and the cheeses have melted.

We went with the oven for this one, mostly due to some left over rain clouds from the previous nights thunderstorm but also due to the ovens proximity to the fridge (and cold beer). We also gave up on the idea of eating this as a side dish, and simply ate it like a toasted sandwich.

But you know what, the only people who were disappointed, where those we couldn’t (or refused) to share with!

    Lefties are tough. Clearly that’s what I got out of this post, but we lefties must stick together. No one knows the trouble we’ve seen.
