1/2 Cup Olive Oil
1 Egg

500g Ground Beef
1 Medium Onion, Finley chopped
2 Cloves Garlic, crushed
1/2 Cup Parsley, Finley chopped
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 1/2 Tsp Salt

  3. Preheat oven at 180c.
  4. In a large bowl add the yogurt, olive oil and egg, mix well to combine.

  7. Spread the meat filling evenly on top of the filo.
  8. One at a time place the other half of the filo packet on top brushing each sheet with the yogurt mixture.
