Kafta is a Middle Eastern type hamburger mixture. When it is baked and topped with saucy potatoes it becomes an everyday homestyle Arabic meatloaf. The one hit or miss with this recipe is the potatoes; sometimes they just won't become tender. Not to take any chances when company is coming, I preboil them before adding them to the kafta.

1 pound lean ground beef
1 small onion - minced
1/2 cup parsley - chopped
1 tablespoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon allspice
4 potatoes - peeled and sliced
16 ounces tomato sauce
2 cups water

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a large bowl, mix beef, onion, parsley, salt, pepper, cinnamon and allspice. Spray a 9 x 12 " pan with cooking spray. Pat beef mixture onto bottom of pan. Line top of beef mixture with thinly sliced potatoes. In a medium bowl, dilute the tomato sauce with the water. Pour over potatoes. Bake for 45 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
