This dish is legendary! Creamy, juicy and absolutely delicious..

Greek Moussaka (mousaka) is one of the most popular oven dishes in Greece, served in almost every tavern and prepared in every household on special occasions and big family meals and for a good reason!





Mousaka is to the Eastern Mediterranean what lasagna is to Italy: A very rich, special casserole that is perfect for Sunday dinners or potluck gatherings. The recipe takes some time to put together, but like a good lasagna, it’s worth it. To prepare a traditional Greek Moussaka recipe, luscious layers of juicy minced beef (or lamb) are cooked in a tomato based sauce, layered with sweet eggplants, potatoes and creamy béchamel sauce and baked together until golden perfection.. You have endless variety, from different ingredients in the meat sauce, choices of meat, amount of béchamel, how they cut and cook the eggplants, whether to use potatoes, etc.
