Hi All,

We all know there is no better than getting out at a picnic spot and making a nice lunch or brekkie at a picnic spot. Whether it is overlooking the Tsendze at Mooiplaas or under the lapa at Babalala, we all have our favourite spots...

What I want to know is what do you all make? i have climbed out of my car to be greeted by the best smells and I have seen food set out that will make the Masterchef contestants look twice!

We usually make the following for breakfast: (Its quick & easy)

- We rent 2 gas braais (if available)
- On the one we do mutton wors and bacon
- On the other some french toast

This all gives us the energy to search for a few tuskers or spotted cats...

Nice topic

For us it always normally Eggs, bacon, sausages/wors, tomatoes, onion and and Left over meat from the night before. There is also a very controversial item, Banana if im cooking its not a problem but if my sister is cooking I normally get a few choice words thrown at me, she has a fit if it touches the other food :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Recently I took my little cousins to Kruger and my Niece being diabetic we had to stick to lunch times and not our normal Kruger schedule of a big late brunch. I decided to take some really nice Burger patties with and cook them on the skottel. Best Burger I have ever had with fried onions, tomato, toasted buns and of course some melted cheese.

I like the idea of 2 skottel using one for eggs, I might get the chance to make some scrambled eggs for my self in Kruger :clap: :clap:

Forgot about fried tomatoes!
If we're cooking up in camp, we may have a vodka-orange juice.

@isinkwe: are your photos one morning's worth? :shock:

Could all of you please have your yellow ribbons showing (and have an extra portion for someone :wink: wanting to join you) when making those brekkies ?
I am sure I will recognise you/yours even without a YR, Isinkwe 8)

When you rent the gas Braii, do you get the pan to cook in?

Yes. That is part of the braai.

I was wondering, is this skottel braai a South African thing only or do they do it in other countries as well?

Yissie ouens, you make a day of it hey! How long do you stay at the picnic spot to put all this stuff together. But heck it looks good. I think I'll give it a bash next time but just the eggs and the sausage.

We usually just make some samies the night before and go sit and eat that with a bit of coffee.

No Val! You've been missing out on a great Kruger tradition! :naughty: You better go buy some eggs and stuff with your next trip! :rtm: :tongue: :lol:

Love this topic! It is making me seriously hungry now! :tongue: Isinkwe - your pics are mouth-watering!!! We usually do fried onions, mushrooms, tomato, bacon, sausage of sorts and scrambled egg. My SO and I also disagree on the fried banana - I love it, and he cannot stand the idea! :P

I like the idea of burgers for lunch, spargish, think I might try that one some time... :hmz:

For me, a skottle breakfast is part and parcel of Krugerparking. I could not think of going anywhere in Kruger without my skottle, we spend about an hour doing brunch, and have always been rewarded by some special sightings plus meeting a lot of interesting people while we are there. I have tried the same thing at home, it just not taste the same :roll:
For some strange reason, I always take pictures of my brunch, think it all started when the people in the tour groups started taking photos of my skottle when all they had a sandwich and an apple :wall:
Once had a strange idea, I asked SO to grate some potatoes and made a hashbrown to go with last nights left overs for brunch, will do that again :thumbs_up:
here it is

Image

Well , matthys had a good idea, think I will hang a yellow ribbon on my skottle so you can all come over and say hello, and join us for breakfast :thumbs_up: I don't mind cooking for all of you, :D No better way to make friends than over a good breakfast/brunch :D
