Bobotie -African style meatloaf

This South African original is similar to meatloaf, but so much better. A slightly sweet curry flavors ground beef with a milk and egg custard on top. It's delicious!

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
2Place the milk in a shallow dish. Soak the croutons in the milk. Don't get to mushy. Set the milk aside. Add the croutons to the beef & onions. Stir in the raisins, apricot jam, chutney, curry powder, turmeric, eggs, salt, and black pepper. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish.
3Bake in the preheated oven 1 hour.
4While the bobotie bakes, whisk together the reserved milk, egg, and a pinch of salt. Pour over top of the dish. Lay the bay leaf onto the top of the milk mixture.
5Return the bobotie to the oven until the top is golden brown, 15 to 30 minutes. Remove bay leaf before serving.
