Cook the boerewors and set aside to cool. Prepare some coals – not too hot – the same that you will use for making braaibroodjies.
Roll puff pastry out. Spread pesto on one half, then top with onion and garlic mixture.
Place boerewors on top, season with salt, pepper and smoked paprika. Top with cheeses. Fold one half over the filling and pinch to close.
Place on a braai grid and close gently. Do not latch it. Cook over the coals for 15 minutes, turning regularly.
Cut into wedges and serve.
