Diva Tasting: Southland Cheese Rolls….

I have this urgent need to look up every recipe for something I hear on my English detectives. Recently I keep hearing over and over how wonderful Mrs. Marlow’s “Cheese Rolls” are ….So I looked up a recipe from New Zealand, from whence they hail…Yum. Great for groups when in a hurry…

Southland Cheese Rolls (Mrs Marlows)

Ingredients:

1 Can Evaporated Milk

1 Cup Cream

1 Small Onion, Grated (about ¼ Cup)

1 Tsp Mustard Powder

½ Tsp Fine White Pepper

18 Ounces Edam Cheese, Grated

1 Packet Dry Onion Soup Mix

About 35 Slices White Or Light Grain Sandwich Bread (about 1½ Loaves)

Softened Butter Or Mayonnaise, To Spread

About 35 Slices White Or Light Grain Sandwich Bread (about 1½ Loaves)

Softened Butter Or Mayonnaise, To Spread

Directions:

Place evaporated milk in a pot with cream, onion, mustard powder and pepper. Heat until almost boiling. Remove from heat, add cheese and soup powder and stir until cheese has melted and sauce has thickened. Allow to cool before using (it will thicken further as it cools). This mixture can be made in advance and stored in a container in the fridge for up to a week.

To cook rolls, preheat oven to 180˚C and line 2 oven trays with baking paper.

Spread one side of each slice of bread with butter or mayonnaise and remove crusts if desired (traditionally they aren’t removed). Spread 2 tbsp of the cooled cheese mixture on the unbuttered side of each slice, and then roll up firmly, placing joined-edge down on the prepared tray. Bake until crisp and golden (15-20 minutes). Allow to cool for a few minutes before serving
