Braai-Broodjies grilled cheese sandwiches are a delicious African food recipe traditionally cooked over barbeque coals or a braai in South Africa.

Ingredients    
4 slices naan bread     
4 slices Swiss cheese
1 sliced red onion
1 sliced tomato
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
   
Directions
In a large bowl, mix onion, tomato, olive oil and garlic powder gently by hand. Place one piece of cheese on each slice of naan bread, set two slices aside. On the remaining two slices top with onion tomato mixture and then top with remaining bread. Brush both sides of the Braai-Broodjies the remaining oil in the bowl, add more oil if needed for an even coating.
