Lockdown treat time

by Forever Resorts South Africa on 16 July 2020

During this lockdown, with more time spent at home, many have explored hobbies they could do from the comfort of their own home. One hobby that increased was cooking and baking delicious meals to share together as a family.

We spoke to the Banqueting Team at Forever Warmbaths as part of our #TogetherFOREVER campaign to hear what recipes they suggest we try out at home, or at our next holiday destination.


Scrumptious Burger Braai Broodjie

You will need:

• 6 homemade burger patties
• 12 slices of bread
• Soft butter
• Sliced tomato
• Grated cheddar cheese
• Thinly sliced red onion
• Chutney

Method:

1. Use a hinged grid and pre-cook your burger patties on the braai for 8 to 10 minutes (you can also cook them in a pan on the stove if the weather is too cold outside).

2. Spread butter on the outside of your bread slices.

3. Spread a layer of Chutney on the inside of your bread slices, and then place your burger patty on the Chutney and top with tomatoes, onions and cheese.

4. Close the burger with the other slice of bread and butter on the outside.

5. Place the burger braai broodjies into the hinged grid and braai over medium coals.

6. Turn the grid often, you want the cheese to melt and the bread to toast.

7. Remove the burger braai broodjies from the grid, slice in half and serve warm.
