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.
