I know, I know. This moussaka recipe will make food purist shudder in horror because it is full of preprocessed ingredients and definitely not like the Real Stuff you'd eat in Greece. But I like it because it's quick and very, very tasty. Politically incorrect indeed... Lots of calories, not for the faint of heart! A healthy salad as side dish is recommended... :-)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven, 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Mix 2 tbsp olive oil with 1 minced garlic clove. Rub the eggplant slices with the garlic-oil mix.
  3. Grill eggplant slices in grill pan, approximately 3 minutes on each side.
  4. Pour the rest of olive oil in a frying pan, add ground beef and the other minced garlic clove and let fry until the meat is well-done. Add tomato sauce, oregano, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Put eggplant slices on the bottom of a greased oven-proof dish.
  6. Put tomato-beef sauce on top of this.
  7. The next layer consists of the potato mash or slices.
  8. Top with a layer of yogurt mixed with grated cheese, salt and pepper.
  9. Put dish in preheated oven, let fry for 15 minutes and finish with 5 minutes under grill in order to make the yogurt-cheese layer crispy.
