3 Pro Tips:

  1. Remember to season your fillings with a pinch of salt and some freshly ground black pepper. 
  2. Use grated cheese when possible, this way you ensure that the cheese melts evenly.
  3. Ensure that you are braaiing over a gentle heat. If the coals are too hot, you will burn the bread while leaving the fillings cold and uncooked.
