2 onions
2 carrots
1 golden beet (they’re awesome!)
1 apple
2 lb ground beef
filo dough
Sesame seeds (optional)
Egg (optional)


1. Dice and saute the onions in a large skillet. Grate the carrot and beets and add.
2. Saute until everything looks cooked/onions are translucent. (This can take a while, never fear!) Set aside.
3. Grate the apple. Add apple and meat to skillet and cook until the meat is brown.
4. Follow this recipe’s guide for dealing with the filo dough!
(unroll the filo early, oil it lightly, add filling, fold into triangles, coat with egg wash, add sesame seeds if you feel so moved, bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes. I’d definitely read the article, though.)

You can also adapt the bourekas to have any kind of filling. My personal favorites include cheese; spinach and feta; apple/fruit, and savory meat fillings like the one above!
