Moussaka

This recipe does not need an introduction…

From the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding to almost every Greek taverna, Moussaka is one of the most famous Greek dishes!

Eggplants are the most important ingredient. Once you have prepared the beef mince and the béchamel sauce, you cut the eggplants in slices and put them on the grill.

Making layers for the Moussaka

Cover an oven proof dish with a third of the potatoes, eggplant slices and the beef mince. Sprinkle with the kefalotiri and repeat the layers. Finally add the béchamel sauce on top and finish it up with a last sprinkling of kefalotiri.

Bubbling and golden

Bake in the oven for 50-60 minutes, until bubbling and golden. Allow the Moussaka to settle for at least 5 minutes before cutting into squares and serving, that is if you can stand to wait that long. For many the aroma is even better than the flavor of this amazing dish!
