Meat Pie like Burek Lena
Burek the word itself comes from Turkey and, over time, the Serbs started making this salty pie with meat, I can tell you that it is very tasty, and I always make Meat Pie this way. Try it, you won't regret it. Follow recipe.

Meat pie like burek
Finely chop the onion and put it in the pan to fry, as soon as it turns a little yellow and gets a glassy shine, put the meat to simmer, add salt and pepper to taste, and wait for the water to come out of the meat, (you can also combine one chopped carrot if you like with this filling.)
When the filling is ready, set it aside, then put the crusts in an oiled pan, previously divide them into 3 parts and fill every third crust, when we reach the end of the crust, prepare the topping for the crusts in the description and pour over the pie mix the pan well and mix well so that the topping enters each crust.
Then cut it into cubes as you wish and let it stand for 1 hour before baking.
Bake at 200 degrees for 30 min. depending on the oven. When it gets a brownish-yellow color, then it's done.
Serve for breakfast or appetizer.

Meat Pie like Burek Lena
Finely chop the onion and fry it in oil. Add minced meat and fry well. Season with salt and pepper.
Divide the crust into 3 parts and the filling into 2 parts. Arrange alternately in a greased pan (large from the oven).
Cut into smaller cubes with a sharp knife.
Mix mineral water, yogurt, and oil. Pour this mixture over the pie. Carefully lift the pieces a little so that the mixture penetrates everywhere. Leave a little for the mixture to absorb.
Beat the eggs with a mixer, then pour over the pie. Use a spoon to lift the layers again. You can even shake the tin a little.
Bake the pie for the first 10 min at 250 C, then cover with foil and bake for another 20-25 min-at 200 C. It doesn't have to be covered when taken out of the oven because it will definitely be soft (it will be wonderfully crispy on the sides and bottom).
Note: If you don't like meat, you can make it with mushrooms. It takes 400-500 g of mushrooms because they have a lot of liquid, so frying takes longer. Don’t be bothered by the fact that so little meat goes. That is quite enough to make the pie tasty without being heavy. Of course, you can also increase the amount of meat up to 500 g if you like it to be more filling.
