GETTING READY
1) Preheat oven to 400° F.
2) Grease 2-3 jelly roll pans.
3) Cut potatoes into 1/4 inch slices. Brush the potato slices on both sides with 1 tablespoon oil.

MAKING
4) On the prepared pans, place the potatoes and bake for about 7 minutes. Remove and turn over the slices. Brush with 1 tablespoon oil and bake for another 8 minutes or until just tender. Set aside and reduce the oven temperature to 375° F.
5) Remove from oven and turn over the slices. Brush with 1 tablespoon oil. Bake for about 8 minutes or until just tender. Set aside and reduce oven temperature to 375° F.
6) FOR THE FILLING: Take a medium size skillet and heat oil in it. Saute onions for about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for another 1 minute. Crumble in the beef or lamb and saute until it is partially cooked.
7) Add oregano, cinnamon, thyme, pepper, wine and salt. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the wine evaporates completely, stirring occasionally. Add tomatoes and cook for another 5 minutes.
8) FOR THE WHITE SAUCE: Take a medium-size bowl and whisk egg yolks in it. Slowly add about 1 cup hot White sauce. In a saucepan, mix the remaining white sauce and the whisked mixture.
9) Keeping aside 2 tablespoons Parmesan Cheese, stir the cheese into the mixture.
