One of the best ways to ‘visit’ a country is through their cuisine right? I would love to visit Greece someday and since travel is out of the picture for now, might us well familiarise myself with what I will be ordering when I get there! LOL!
The first time I had moussaka was in my uni days, and I fell in love with this delicious layered dish of potatoes, eggplant, mince and a white sauce on top that’s baked till brown and ooh, you have to try it to believe it!
This was my first attempt to make this dish and I did differ a bit from the original. I combined different moussaka recipes online to work with what I had on hand. Also, I didn’t fry the vegetables, I baked them instead. And I used sweet potato instead of usual Irish potato; the meal is still delicious so let’s get started.
You can get started with the mince first. In a large saucepan, heat some oil then add the mince and cook till brown.
NOTE; You can add a cup of red wine to the meat mixture of you like, it really deepens the flavour of the meat 🙂
As the meat cooks, you can be baking the vegetables.
