Quick braai toastie 

South Africans love a good braai. Trade the meat for a toasted sandwich with all the trimmings. Prepare your sandwich with a filling of tomato, onion and cheese. Add chutney for a kick of sweetness. Butter the outside for a crisp texture and golden brown look.

For melted perfection, go for grated rather than sliced cheese. Nothing is more disappointing than biting into a sandwich, only to have half the cheese melted. Braai inside a closed grid or on an open braai, over mild coals for about 10 minutes or until cheese has melted. The coals shouldn’t be too hot as the bread cooks quickly.
