How to Cook Beef Casserole With Bacon Weave on Top

  1. You can start with the Bechamel sauce.
  2. Heat a saucepan over medium-low heat and start melting the butter. Add the flour and stir until smooth.
  3. Cook the mixture on medium heat for about 6-7 minutes, until it has a light, golden color.
  4. Separately, heat the milk in a separate pan, until just about to boil. Slowly add the hot milk in the butter mixture, whisking continuously until the mixture is very smooth, with no lumps.
  5. Cook for 10 more minutes, while constantly stirring, and then remove from the heat.
  6. Season the sauce with salt and nutmeg and leave it aside.
  7. Preheat the oven to 360°F/180°C.
  8. Heat a skillet and add vegetable oil. Add in the meat and start cooking it. Season with salt and pepper and cook it for about 6-7 minutes, or until it starts turning brown.
  9. Cover the base of a baking tray with potato slices. Pour half of your Bechamel sauce, season with nutmeg and add half of the ground beef.
  10. Add another layer of potatoes, bechamel, nutmeg, and beef.
  11. Spread plastic foil on a wooden board, and weave the bacon slices.
  12. Cover the baking tray with the bacon weave and put in the oven for the next hour.
  13. Remove the casserole from the oven, add shredded mozzarella on top and return it in the oven for 7 minutes.
  14. Serve warm!
