water 8 ounces lean ground lamb

1 medium onion -- chopped fine

1/2 cup quick-cooking barley

1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 cup milk

3 eggs

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

When cool enough to handle, cut in 1/2 inch thick slices.

3. Meanwhile cook lamb and onion in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat 5 minutes, stirring to break up meat, until no longer pink. Add 1 cup water, the barley, 1 cup of the tomato sauce, the oregano, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and the cinnamon. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 12 minutes stirring occasionally, until barley is tender.

4. In a 2 cup glass measure, whisk milk, eggs, salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper until blended.

5. Place 1/2 the potato slices in a single layer on bottom of prepared dish ( Potatoes will not cover entire surface). Spoon on lamb mixture; top with remaining potatoes. Pour milk mixture evenly over top. Sprinkle with cheese.

6. Bake 35 minutes of until a knife inserted in center comes out clean, and top is lightly browned. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
