Alaskan Bobotie

Wasn't sure what to call this since it is not the true South African version. I wanted to try the original but did not have the ingredients on hand plus I wanted to add a little more vegetables. One of the ingredients I had to chuckle about is white bread. I can't remember the last time I bought white bread. My son doesn't even like white bread. He will eat it if that is what is served but prefers wheat or other whole grain breads.

Was told by the family this was so terrible, I was never to make it again which translates to, make this tomorrow!! I'll admit, I'm tempted!! It was lick-the-bowl delicious! There is no leftovers for my lunch tomorrow...booohooo!

Prepare to be shocked, there is NO garlic! I had to resist the temptation to add it! I think it would have been delicious to add but wanted to try and stay as close as possible without disrupting the original intended flavor. But I did have to hold back! Just so you know! Ha!

I'm so lucky to have a family who is so patient with all my experiments in the kitchen. Really think this will be good for my son in the long run. Widening his palate as well as teach him healthier eating habits.

1 pound ground meat (I used pork)
1 onion sliced thin
1 apple cubed small (the more tart the better)
1 tablespoon garam masala seasoning
2 tablespoon raw apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
2 slices whole wheat bread soaked in milk
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1 1/2 cup arugula (or spinach)
2 eggs
salt and pepper to taste

1 egg
1/2 cup milk

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Brown ground meat, add onions until tender (approx 5 mins), add apples and garam masala. Squeeze out excess milk from bread, crumble over mixture. Stir in lemon juice, pumpkin seeds and arugula. Add 1 egg and mix well.

Pour into baking dish and bake covered for 40 minutes.

Mix 1 egg and milk, pour over mixture. Bake an additional 15 minutes uncovered.

Enjoy! Remember to take chances, make mistakes and get messy!!


  1. Ooo, do you really eat this stuff? LOL I'm sure it's like some of the Arabian foods I've eaten; some look, well, less desirable but the taste is out of this world! When I saw the pic in Blogger I had to come see what in the world you made today!

    Wanted to ask also, this maram gasalla, oh sorry garam masala (I'm not drinking) you mention? I found what it is but where do you buy it?

  2. Yes! Not only do my husband and I eat it, but my 7 year old boy laps it up!

    The garam masala should be found in any grocery store. I've tried many blends, locally and by mail and only found one I truly love. Summit Tea & Spice ( www.summitspiceandtea.com/servlet/StoreFront ). I see on their homepage they have a new version out! I'll have to try it!! :o)
