This Braai month, were celebrating our colleboration with Jan Braai and showcasing his recipes. There's nothing like a great side dish to accompany a good meal. Try these yummy Cheese potatoes, flavoured with Cape Herb & Spice Smoked Paprika Seasoning.

- WHAT YOU WILL NEED -

  • 1 kg bag of baby potatoes
  • 2 tots olive oil
  • 2 tots butter
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 1 bell pepper (green, yellow or red, seeded and sliced into strips)
  • 1 pack Denny - Fresh Brown Mushrooms
  • 8 garlic cloves (crushed)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 240g Lancewoord - Mature Cheddar Cheese (grated)
  • ½ tot Cape Herb and Spice SMOKED PAPRIKA

- METHOD -

Wash the potatoes, add them to your potjie and boil in water until soft.

Now drain the water from the potjie but keep the soft-boiled potatoes in the potjie. Add the olive oil, butter, chopped onion, bell pepper strips, mushrooms, garlic, salt and pepper to the potjie and now stir-fry everything for a few minutes until some things become caramelised and golden brown.

Now use your wooden spoon or braai tongs and press on some of the potatoes so they burst at the seams, allowing some extra flavours to develop and penetrate the potatoes. Stir-fry for another minute or three.

If things at the bottom of the potjie get sticky and want to burn, add a bit of water, olive oil, beer, wine or stock and scrape lose anything sticky.

You now add the grated cheese and sprinkle Cape Herb & Spice Smoked Paprika Seasoning on top of that. Close the lid of the potjie and take the potjie off the fire. Add a generous helping of coals onto the lid of the potjie – as much as you can fit onto the lid – and wait a few minutes for the cheese to start melting. Once the cheese has melted, your potatoes are good to go!
