Boerewors and Sandwiches

Homemade breakfast Boerewors sausage patties are easy to make. In South Africa, Boerewors are traditionally cooked over coals as part of a barbecue, or fried in a pan on the stove inside casings to make link sausages. Today we are making Boerewors sausage patties instead of links.

It is essential to know the difference between minced meat and ground meat when making South African Boerewors. Boerewors uses minced meat and not ground meat. Minced meat is meat that is chopped up very finely; ground meat is more pulverized since it is put through a meat grinder possibly with other fillers such as fat, soybeans and water to bulk the ground meat up.

The word Boerewors is literally translated to farmer’s sausage in the Dutch Afrikaans language and is a traditional South African sausage. The spice coriander and cloves define Boerewors taste. Serve in between two slices of bread, mushrooms, tomatoes, cheese and eggs for the ultimate Boerewors breakfast sandwich.

Africa is surrounded by water but is not an island, here are a few African Island facts.

Madagascar is the 4th large island in the world and is located in the Indian Ocean supporting a unique biology, about 90% of its plants and animals are found nowhere else on earth.

Composed of 155 islands, Seychelles is Africa's smallest country. By far the largest island is Mahe, home to about 90% of the population and the site of its capital city of Victoria.

Cabo Verde has a strategic location 310 miles or 500 km from the west coast of Africa near major north-south sea routes; important communications station; important sea and air refueling site.

Africa is surrounded by water but by definition Africa is not an island because Africa is a continent. Continents can not be considered islands because of their size and also by historic definition since many people who study geography define islands and continents as two different things.
