  • Summary

    Somewhat similar to lasagna, moussaka is a popular Greek dish made with layers of eggplant, seasoned ground lamb and a topping of creamy, bechamel sauce. It's easy to prepare and makes a great make-ahead dinner to enjoy with family and friends. Try serving it with our Classic Skordalia as an appetizer and a green salad dressed with a Greek-style vinaigrette.
