Boil the potatoes in salted water until done. Drain them,
mash them thoroughly and set them aside. Once they have
cooled, add 4 eggs, the dill weed and half of the cheese to
them and mix well.
In a large skillet, heat the oil and brown the ground meat
with the onions. Add the tomatoes, parsley and salt and
pepper. Cook the mixture for 15 minutes then set aside. Once
it has cooled, add two eggs and mix it all together.
Butter a large baking dish and lay the sheet of fillo
pastry in the bottom. Smooth half of the potato mixture over
the pastry, then smooth the beef mixture and top it off with
the remaining potatoes.
Pour the melted butter over the casserole and sprinkle the
remaining cheese over it. Bake it for 40 minutes at 350F. Let
the casserole stand for a few minutes before serving.
Susie's Note: You can prepare this in
advance or even bake it the night before and just microwave
servings when needed. Being a working mom, I love the
convenience of this recipe.
