Southland Cheese Rolls query

I'm just making some of these now - never made them before - didn't realise the mixture would be so runny. Am I doing something wrong or does the mixture thicken as it cools?

has the mixture been left to cool enough before you make them? . . and what recipe did you use? ...

Tin of evaporated milk / Cheese (probably 3 cups) grated / 1 tsp Curry / 1/2 tsp of Paprika / Onion soup. (It's still cooling)

And seems to be thickening up (she says hopefully! )

I used this recipe and it is yummy. .

1 tin reduced cream
1 packet onion dip
300g cheese grated
1 tsp mustard powder
a little minced onion
white thin sliced bread
soft butter
whack all ingredients together and spread over 2/3 of each slice of bread and roll up... now it says to butter one side of bread and turn it over, fill it then roll it up but its as messy as hell and next time I will butter the rolls before they cook... . bake 180C for 12-15 mins... or grill them. .

The "ultimate" southern cheese roll recipe

500 grams grated cheese – Mild, Edam, Colby or Tasty, your choice. I used Colby.
1 tin Nestle carnation evaporated milk 375ml
1 pkt Maggi onion soup mix
1 finely chopped onion
1 teaspoon mustard powder
1/4 cup cream
Heat in microwave for six minutes - stirring in between time, (3 times) cool - spread lengthways on to long cut (sandwich) white bread. Roll into cheese rolls (3 folds).
I bought two loaves from the bakery and made 33 rolls, my daughter used supermarket bread and had to buy 3 loaves.
Grill for 10 minutes to toast then cover in butter and enjoy.

I had never made them before, but used this recipe (minus the cream) and heated the mix on the stovetop. It did need to cool a bit before thickening, but not long.

I don't think I'd bother with them again unless I had to feed a junior football team post-match :)They are very rich and salty.
