This is my fourth time making moussaka, each time from a different recipe. I altered this one to one eggplant, one zucchini and about 6 small potatoes (parboiled).
I was confused by the instructions, I didn't know if the eggplant was to be fried in the oil or the butter, but went with the oil and needed a lot more oil than 2 tsps. I also fried the zucchini.
Also, I browned and drained the meat before adding it to the onion, garlic and spices. I didn't omit the butter, but might do that on a second batch.
I didn't know what fine herbs were either, so I substituted italian seasoning and it was fine.
This is a great recipe, but it took nearly every pan I had to cook it! Maybe I need more pans?
This is a lovely recipe that I will add to my binder!! I was going to rate this a 4 because of the confusion with the directions, but even if confusing, this is a five star recipe!!!
