The days are really heating up here in South Africa and there is always a reason to light a good ol’ braai. It’s so popular that we even have a mid-week Wednesday braai called Little Saturday. However, we all know how late South Africans can start actually cooking on the flames. That’s why we need a snack to keep us happy while we enjoy the festivities. These Bacon & Cherry Sosaties or skewers are great, because you know…bacon.
These are easy to find in stores but when making them yourselves, chances are that you have much better bacon products and cherries that won’t fall off. You can use both steel or wooden skewers. Make sure you place them across the grid so they don’t fall through. This happens often, which is why they are also known as “oopsies” when cherries fall off. You can also place these in a pinch grid, making turning them even easier. Remember to keep the Maraschino cherry syrup to pour over when grilling your Bacon & Cherry Sosaties.
There is no South African braai without great snacks. These Bacon & Cherry Sosaties have got you covered with sweet and salty deliciousness.
