This recipe takes me back to the old days when we braai’d on the beach and served up sides and salads of all kinds, my favourite was a boerie roll topped with spoonfuls of this delicious spicy baked beans – served cold of course!

Another reason I love this dish so much, serve hot on toast or cold as a side with braai’d meat or whatever else you like – it is a staple in our home.
