Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a pan, heat the garlic with half of the olive oil.
  2. Add in the ground meat and small onion.
  3. When the meat is almost cooked through add in the tomato paste.
  4. Add in the salt, pepper, cinnamon and all spice to your taste.
  5. When cooked completely through, remove from heat and set aside in a bowl.
  6. Preheat the oven to 375F degrees.
  7. In a large lasagna size glass pan, spray the bottom of the pan with Pam.
  8. Add one sheet of the Phyllo dough.
  9. Spray that sheet and add another layer the same way until you have 5 sheets sprayed down with the Pam and layered on top of each other.
  10. You can let it go over the sides if the pan is too small for the sheet.
  11. Once you have the 5 sheets, add the meat to the sheets and spread evenly.
  12. Add the feta cheese evenly on top of the meat mixture.
  13. Make sure it is crumbled small.
  14. You do not want large chunks in one spot.
  15. Once you are through with that, start to add the remaining sheets the same way you did to begin with, remembering to spray each sheet as you layer.
  16. On the top layer, I sprayed with the Pam and also put the remaining olive oil on it spread evenly.
  17. You do not have to do this, I just like the extra taste.
  18. I also folded over the overlay to make it seal somewhat.
  19. Cook for about 15-17 minutes or until it is lightly golden on the top.

This was delicious! I also added 3 large potatoes to fill this out a bit more, chopped in a small dice and pre-cooked. Since I added the potatoes, I added some more salt and doubled the spices. This was really great! November 25, 2014

Easy peasy delicious. And a definite hit. I'm non Turkish. My Turkish boyfriend was like, where have you been hiding my dinner all this time! Will throw it into my routine! Maybe a tiny bit more all spice and cinnamon next time just to see what it tastes like. Used 97 fat free meat with no complaints.

I am the first to say I am NOT a fan of ground meat of any kind, so I was skeptical, but I wanted to use up the phyllo dough in the fridge and I knew my dh and ds would eat I googled meat pie and phyllo and got a superb recipe!

I subbed the ground beef for ground turkey, left out the cinnamon and used a mix of cheeses instead of feta. And I added crumbled bacon.

WOW - this stuff was good! And super easy - even for me.

I felt like a Martha Stewart/Betty Crocker/Paula Deen cook.
