Serves 8

Hands-on time: 35 minutes

Hands-off time: 25 minutes



13 slices white bread

½ cup NESTLÉ Ideal Evaporated Milk

1 tbsp oil

1 tbsp bobotie spice

½ tsp ground turmeric

1 medium onion, finely chopped

1 clove garlic, crushed

500g beef mince

1 tbsp chutney, plus extra to serve

1 tbsp sultanas (optional)

1 tsp each salt and pepper, to season

3 large eggs

Serving suggestion:

Green salad




Place one slice of bread in a bowl and add ¼ cup of the NESTLÉ Ideal Evaporated Milk on top. Set aside to soak for 10 minutes.


Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the bobotie spice, turmeric and onions and fry for 1 minute until tender.


Add the garlic and beef mince and brown for 10 minutes

Squeeze the excess milk from the bread and set the milk aside for later use. Add the soaked bread, chutney and sultanas to the mince mixture and cook for another minute. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set the filling aside to cool for 10 minutes while you prepare the bread roll.

Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.


Cut off the crusts from the remaining 12 bread slices. *Chefs Tip: Crusts can be placed in a resealable bag and frozen to use for croutons or breadcrumbs

Place a large sheet of baking paper on the counter. Lay the crustless slices of bread next to each other on the paper in a 4x3 formation with the sides overlapping slightly. Use your finger to press the overlapping edges down firmly then roll over the whole shape with a rolling pin to seal the slices together.


Whisk the eggs, remaining NESTLÉ Ideal Evaporated Milk and the milk used for the soaking of the bread together until smooth. Brush the surface of the bread with half the egg mixture. *Chef’s Tip: Seal any overlapping edges again by pressing with your fingers, if needed

Spoon the bobotie beef mixture over the bread in an even layer. Brush over the beef again with a layer of the egg mixture.


Pick up the edge of the baking paper and use it to help you roll the bread with the filling inside.


Place the roll on the prepared baking tray and brush with the remaining egg mixture.


Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and firm.


Slice into 8 portions. Serve with a dollop of chutney and a green salad on the side and ENJOY!
