Moussaka - Greek Beef and Eggplant Lasagna

Moussaka - Greek Beef and Eggplant Lasagna

A traditional recipe for an iconic Greek dish! Moussaka is to the Greek what Lasagna is to Italians. A rich tomato meat sauce layered with eggplant instead of pasta sheets, and topped with a thick layer of béchamel sauce, this traditional Greek recipe takes time to assemble – but it’s well worth the effort. This is serious comfort food – a low carb one!

Very delicious, because when you crack through that golden top and the white bechamel sauce bursts out, you scoop up a big piece and you see all the amazing layers, the soft eggplant melding together with that rich meat sauce! It’s a little bit of food heaven, right there. Totally worth every single pot and pan.
