Ingredients

Serves: 36 

  • 500g tasty cheese cut into small portions
  • 3 medium brown onions, roughly chopped
  • 1 can of unsweetened evaporated milk
  • 1 packet French Onion Soup mix
  • 2 loaves of white bread, crusts removed

Directions

Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Process the cheese, onion, soup powder and evaporated milk in batches in a food processor until the consistency is that of thick porridge, not too wet, not too dry.
  2. Empty into a bowl and repeat process until all ingredients have been processed. If the end mixture is too thick, add some more milk, or if too runny, add some more cheese.
  3. On a slice of bread, (less crusts as the crusts left on make it too hard to roll) spread a small amount of mixture over 3/4 of slice then roll up. The bread should bind with the mixture.
  4. Grill under griller turning once until brown, then apply a generous amount of butter along top of hot cheese roll.
  5. These can also be baked at 180 degrees C for 15 minutes.

Waaaaay too much onion. 1 onion along with the soup mix is plenty. Also add in 1/4 cup cream for extra tastiness/badness! - 17 Mar 2012
