    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 egg yolk, beaten to mix with the milk
    • 1 tablespoon skim milk, for the finish with the egg

    For the filling

    • 1 1/4 lbs extra lean ground beef
    • 1 onion, sliced
    • 3 eggs
    • 9 ounces regato cheese
    • 4 tablespoons skim milk, heated, to make bechamel sauce
    • 1/4 teaspoon flour, to make bechamel sauce
    • 1/4 teaspoon margarine, to make bechamel sauce
    • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1 tablespoon biscotti, crumbled can use other dry baked bread

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Filling: Place sliced onion in a colander. Pour salted boiled water over them, rinse and drain well.
    2. 2
      Add onions to a coated pan and fry for 2 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add beef, cinnamon, salt and pepper and stir well.
    4. 4

    5. 5
      Transfer mixture to a mixing bowl and cool.
    6. 6
      Prepare béchamel Sauce by melting butter in small pan whisk in flour and add hot milk. Whisk.

      Now place the filling on top of the crust and level it.

    15. 15
      Mix the milk and egg yolk and brush the surface with the mixture.
    16. 16

      Place in a preheated oven at 325F degrees for about 45 minutes, until it is golden brown.
