Children adore arts and crafts day! Allowing children to get creative – especially unguided (not unsupervised) from parents to make the “perfect” DIY is wonderful for kid’s confidence and independent thinking.

Let’s be honest and ask the same of you: Have you ever seen a burger as good as this? This is not just a winter warmer for your body, but for your soul! You have to try this loaded beer can burger at your next Sunday braai.
Ground mince (not too skinny)
Anything really, but we suggest any of the following:
Different cheeses of your choice
Salami, Cabanossi or Pepperoni
How to load the burger.
Roll your mince into manly sized meat balls.
Use a full can of beer and push the can into the mince ball so that the mince moulds around the can. It works best if the mince is nice and cold.
Wrap the streaky bacon around the mince which will hold the burger together nicely.
Remove the can.
Pre–cook some of your ingredients like the garlic, onion etc. and stuff it good!
Add grated cheese of your choice and add chilli and BBQ sauce to taste.
You are ready for the grill. You need a medium heat fire. Place your patty pockets on the braai and close the lid. It takes about an hour before they are cooked and ready.
Ready to eat! Add a bread roll to your beer can burger or enjoy as is!
