Even though winter is near, we still love a good braai but sometimes we want something different. Whether you’re making it fresh on the day or using leftovers, you’ll love this South African roosterbrod dagwood. Roosterbrood just refers to the style of bread cooked on the braai and dagwood just refers to a tall, fully-loaded sandwich with meats, cheese and your favourite sandwich toppings. It’s the braai variation of a Gatsby sandwich from Cape Town.
You’ll be making your own roosterbrood loaf or rolls with an easy recipe that’s still light and fluffy with a crispy crust thanks to cooking on the fire. You can easily use leftover steak but everything is better fresh. All of the classic roosterbrood veggies like onions, tomato and lettuce make their way onto the sandwich and you can use any condiments you want to. Cheddar our gouda cheese is often the most popular and it’s a great idea to pop the sandwich back onto the fire and close the lid if you have one to melt the cheese in sandwich.
Whether it’s fresh or braai leftovers, this South African roosterbrood dagwood is the fully-loaded steak sandwich you need to try.
