Moussaka Recipe

First, you'll need to gather your ingredients:

  • 1 eggplant
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 lb (450 g) lean ground beef
  • 2 cans (398 ml each) diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) red wine
  • 1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp (1.25 ml) ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) fresh mint, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) plain breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) butter
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups (1 L) milk
  • 1 pinch of ground nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Next, it's time to start cooking!

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Cut the eggplant into 1/4-inch (0.6 cm) slices and sprinkle with salt. Let sit for 30 minutes to release the moisture.
  3. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and add the onion and garlic. Cook until the onion is translucent, then add the ground beef. Cook until browned, then add the diced tomatoes, red wine, cinnamon, nutmeg, parsley, and mint. Simmer for 10 minutes, then remove from heat.
  4. Rinse the eggplant slices and pat them dry with a paper towel. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and cook the slices until golden brown on both sides. Set aside on a plate lined with paper towels to soak up any excess oil.
  5. In a separate pan, melt the butter over low heat, then whisk in the flour until smooth. Slowly add the milk, whisking constantly, until the sauce thickens. Add the nutmeg and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. In a baking dish (9 x 12 inches), spread a layer of the ground beef mixture, followed by a layer of eggplant slices, and then a layer of the sauce. Repeat until all ingredients are used up, finishing with a layer of sauce on top.
  7. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs and grated Parmesan cheese evenly over the top layer of sauce.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the sauce is bubbly. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.

And there you have it - a delicious and hearty Moussaka that's sure to become a family favorite!
