FOOD: SAMFA Braai Bruschetta Recipe

Serves 4


  • 8 slices bread of choice (ciabatta & sourdough work well)
  • 2 shallots, finely sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 250g baby button mushrooms, sliced in half
  • 250g portabellini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup / 125g Gruyere cheese, grated
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, for serving


Preheat the braai.

Brush the slices of bread with a little olive oil and toast on the braai until golden brown on both sides. Set aside.

In a cast iron pan directly on the braai heat a drizzle of olive oil. Add the shallots and cook until tender and starting to caramelise. Add the garlic and cook for a minute.

Add the sliced mushrooms and cook stirring occasionally, until browned all over.

Season the mushrooms with salt and pepper and remove from the heat.

Place the toasted bread onto a baking tray.

Spoon the mushroom mixture onto each slice and sprinkle with cheese.

Place the tray on the braai and cover with the lid for 2 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

Transfer to a platter, sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve.
