We thought it would only be appropriate to post a braai related recipe today with our Heritage day celebrations! This recipe is perfect for after-braai coals, or to prepare for a hot starter while the meat’s sizzling away.

250g streaky bacon
500g self-raising flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
340ml beer(1 bottle)

1/3 cup water
1 egg, whisked
1 cup grated cheddar


No preheating today, as this bad boy is going in a potjie over the fire. Get your fire ready and let it burn out, leaving only smouldering coals.

In the meatime, grease a flat bottomed potjie and line the pot with long streaks of bacon.

Next, sift the flour into a large bowl and add the salt and pepper, mixing well. Then add the beer, water and egg into a hole in the middle and combine well.

Add the cheese and pour over the bacon, folding the ends back over.

Rest it on a braai triangle, spreading the coals around it and putting some on the lid.

Bake for one hour over.

Tip: The blade should come out clean when tested in the middle.
