Add some egg-stra flavour to your dishes this Heritage Day

Heritage Day is almost here and what a celebration it’s going to be!  After months of not being able to socialise at home, this special day will be appreciated like never before – families in kitchens around the country, whipping up delicious salads and sides while the meat sizzles outside on the braai.

If you are planning on having a feast this Heritage Day, here are some delicious recipes courtesy of the South African Poultry Association (SAPA).
