Frankie is going Greek! Try my Greek Moussaka.

Moussaka

Recently, I started to crave some Greek food.  I saw a reference to this dish on a food show and decided I must try it.  I reviewed a number of recipes and then created my own.  It was amazing!  Better than I’ve had in Greek restaurants.

Moussaka is a Greek casserole of eggplant, layered with a tomato meat sauce and topped with a Béchamel sauce before baking.  It’s signature flavor comes from it’s blend of herbs and spices; Greek oregano, cinammon, allspice and cloves, It is one of my very favorite dishes!

In Greece, this dish is most often made with ground beef, though occasionally ground lamb.  I used ground turkey to lighten it up, and found it to be delicious.
