  1. Heat 2 Tbs. oil in a 12-inch ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onions until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, cinnamon and cloves; cook about 1 minute. Add meat, stirring to break it up, and cook about 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and raisins; simmer 10 minutes.
  2. Arrange eggplant slices on a lipped cookie sheet. Brush both sides with remaining oil, and season with salt and pepper. Broil on upper oven rack, turning once with kitchen tongs, until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side.
  3. Reduce heat to 400 degrees. Lay eggplant in a single layer over meat mixture. Whisk egg into mashed potatoes; spread over eggplant. Bake on lower rack until sauce is bubbly, about 20 minutes.

WE loved this. My husband thought he liked it even better than regular Moussaka. I only deviated from the recipe because he had bought "italian seasoned ground turkey" instead of regular. It ...

This was absolutely wonderful. I used fresh mashed potatoes (about 7 medium) and fresh diced tomatoes (5 medium) and left out the raisins. Needed a fair bit of salt, and put in some Montreal c...

I really enjoyed this recipe! I love comfort foods; and since I cannot have dairy, this was a great one. I used 1/2 pound of beef (it's all that I had) and an entire eggplant which covered a 9...

I used left over turkey meat rather than ground turkey. At the last minute, I couldn't find where I put the raisins, so I left them out. I also couldn't resist adding cheese on top of the potato...

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 m...

Simple, tasty, and mild. I added fresh mozzarella between layers (moussaka is the Greek's equivalent of lasagna) and it was fabulous!

This is such a great one dish recipe! My husband is raving and even my 18 month old daughter ate it! We used Italian seasoned ground turkey and followed the recipe. I also made garlic mashed ...

I've never had regular moussaka so not sure how it was supposed to taste. To me, not a sophisticated palate, it tasted alittle bland and greasy. I used ground beef and ground venison (cause th...
