12 servings

500 gm packet of filo pastry
2 cups precooked minced beef
250 gm soft spreadable white cheese
4 tbsp finely chopped parsley leaves (or)1 tbsp crushed dried mint
100 gm butter + corn oil

In a medium-sized bowl, mix minced meat with cheese and parsley or mint; to incorporate well by means of a fork.  Cover and leave aside.  In a small casserole, melt butter and add a small amount of oil while melting.  Brush base of an ovenproof pan; same size and shape as your pastry, with a thin layer of butter and oil mixture.  Divide amount of filo into two equal portions.  Cover with a clean cotton kitchen towel; during preparation of the dish.  Layer two sheets of pastry, then brush over with butter and oil.  Repeat process until the first batch of pastry is layered in pan.  Top last sheet with prepared filling; to completely cover sheet evenly.  Using the second half of sheets, repeat process on top of filling; brushing to grease after every two sheets and making sure to grease final top sheet.  Bake uncovered, in a preheated oven of 180 degrees C, for approximately 30 minutes; or when top is golden.  Remove from oven.  Allow to slightly cool off in order to slice as illustrated, then serve hot.
