  • 500 g mince
  • 3-4 medium Potatoes
  • 1 pkt filo pastry
  • Butter for brushing the filo pastry sheets
  • 100 g Cheese I used Bocconcini
  • 2 tbsp BBQ Sauce


  • Cook and mash the potatoes. Place into a bowl to cool, 
  •  then add the uncooked mince and BBQ sauce, mix well.
  • Brush butter over the base of an ovenproof dish
  • Cover with a sheet of filo pastry and brush with butter. Continue to lay a sheet of filo brushed with butter over the base a few more times (I layer at least 4 sheets on the bottom).
  • Add a layer of cheese then some of the mince/potato mix. Cover with 2 sheets of filo brushed with butter.
  • Continue with the layers until all the filling is used. Finish off with a buttered layer of filo.
  • Bake for around 30 – 35 minutes in 180-degree oven until golden brown.


Now, depending on the size of your dish will determine how many layers of filling you can do.  I used a large dish, so was only able to get 2 layers of filling, however, if you used a smaller dish you'd be able to get more layers.
