What You Need:
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 1 stick (¼ pound) butter, plus 1 stick butter (¼ pound) melted, for brushing phyllo

    6. Beat eggs until light and fluffy, and mix with milk. Carefully pour mixture over ingredients in pan. Top with 5 phyllo sheets, each brushed with the remaining melted butter.

    7. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until golden on top and firm when tested with a knife. Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting into squares. (See How to work with "PHYLLO", for cutting method.)
