Recipe by Mandy-H
This is a great recipe that I use often. The kids love it. The ground beef is rolled in a lovely dough. When baked, the dough has a light sconey texture to it. A 'must try' when you are tired of all the stock-standard ground beef options.

- FOR FILLING: Heat oil and fry bround beef until color changes. Add onion and garlic and saute for a few minutes. Season with salt, pepper and parsley.
- Add chutney and leave to cool slightly.
- FOR DOUGH: Sift flour, salt and sugar. Rub in margarine or butter and add cheese.
- Beat egg and milk, add dry ingredients, and mix to a soft dough.
- Roll out into into a 20cm x 30cm rectangle. Spoon meat evenly onto dough, roll up like a swiss roll and place on a greased baking tray. Make a few incisions in the roll and brush with beaten egg or milk.

- TIP: If you wish, you could slice the roll before cooking and freeze the slices. Cook when needed.
