“Fresh flavors and a flaky layered topper will elevate the humble everyday dish.”

The marvelousness of this lamb bake astounds me even up to this day. I did not expect lamb to taste this good in a casserole. Lamb has always been “roast” material to me.

Ingredients

  • Pam Cooking spray, for baking dish
  • 2 tsp. Bertolli olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 lb. Tyson ground lamb
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 (14 oz.) can Vigo artichoke hearts, drained, squeezed dry and chopped
  • 2 bunches Swiss chard (1 lb.) trimmed, stems and leaves chopped
  • 1/4 c. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh dill
  • 4 oz. President feta cheese, crumbled (about 1 c.)
  • 2 large Eggland’s eggs
  • Kosher salt
  • McCormick Freshly ground black pepper
  • 7 (18-x 14-in.) sheets Athens frozen phyllo dough, thawed
  • 3 tbsp. Land O Lakes unsalted butter, melted

 

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a 2-quart baking dish.
  2. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and lamb and cook, breaking up lamb with a spoon, until lamb is browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Add garlic and artichokes and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in chard and cook, stirring occasionally until wilted, 4 to 6 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in parsley and dill. Cool 10 minutes. Stir in cheese, eggs, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Transfer mixture to prepared dish.
  4. Trim phyllo, if needed, so that it overhangs the baking dish on all sides by 1 inch. Place one sheet on filling, allowing edges to hang over the side of the dish; brush very lightly with butter. Repeat with remaining phyllo and butter.
  5. Bake until golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes.
  6. Let stand 10 minutes before serving
