Hubby & I loved this recipe. I did make one change- I went to 3 grocery stores and none of them had ground lamb, so I used Italian Sausage. I think it tasted ok, however if I had to sub next time, I would probably just use ground beef- I think the flavors of the spices would meld better with that than the sausage. So I stuck to the recipe for everything else, only cutting it in half and we really enjoyed it. I will keep this recipe to make again for sure. Thanks for posting it.
What a super recipe, easy to make, saucy and meaty and full of flavour, my family very much enjoyed this. I made my white sauce in the microwave, as this is how I generally do it, and since my family really don't like eggplant, (and they're grown-up and recognise an eggplant in the kitchen when they see it), I finally diced some garlic button mushrooms that I had in the fridge, that I think complemented the dish well. The spices are pleasant and not at all strong, all in all it was a flavoursome hearty dish, and thank you for an interesting twist on a classic dish!
I really enjoyed this. It was my first time cooking w/ lamb and eggplant. Moussaka is one of my favorite dishes but it has always intimidated me. Not anymore! This was a great simple version of it. Thanks! Even my 6 yr old loved it which was a plus for me!
Delicious! It's a great way to get your family to eat eggplant. Actually, no one asked me what it was, so I didn't mention it! I used the greater amount of (skim) milk listed. Thanx for a great meal. I'll make this again. I think I may even throw in a small can of diced tomatoes. Yum!
