Moussaka Cottage Pie
Had an eggplant on hand and some ground beef, found this recipe (LOVE the "ingredients search" on this site!!) and threw it together. Very tasty and will definitely make it again. Made a few minor changes to make it easier: 1) A little less olive oil to fry the onions and garlic. 2) Add and brown the ground beef, but hold off on adding the spices and tomatoes. 3) DRAIN the ground beef to get the fat and extra oil out. 4) In a separate bowl, stir in the spices (also add one teaspoon of cumin, as per a reviewer's suggestion) into the crushed tomatoes and, once the ground beef is drained, add it.
I did sprinkle a tiny bit of Greek Seasoning, along with sea salt and pepper, on the oiled eggplant before broiling on each side. It all came together beautifully, but the leftovers the next day were even better! Keeping this recipe, for sure.
