Method                                                                              

To make the sundried tomato tapenade, combine all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth, check seasoning.                                         

To build the braaibroodjies, butter the sourdough slices on both sides.     

Spread the sundried tomato tapenade onto four of the sourdough slices.           

Top with the thinly sliced red onion, fresh basil leaves, fresh cherry tomatoes and season with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper.                                  

Top with the grated mozzarella cheese and cover with the remaining slices of sourdough.                                                                              

Place the braaibroodjies in a folding grid on the braai over medium coals.

Braai until golden brown on both sides with the mozzarella melting and oozing from the sides.                                                                         

The ever so versatile Leopard's Leap Shiraz is a lovely glassful with this braaibroodjie.
