Moussaka- this is now a house favorite. If you ever have leftover potatoes it is a great way to use them up!

1 lb pack lean ground beef

1 large egg plant

1 1/2cup Greek yogurt

1 egg , beaten

3 tbsp parmesean, finely grated

400g can chopped tomatoes with garlic and herbs

4 tbsp tomato paste

400g leftover boiled potatoes

Brown the beef in a frying pan over a high heat until brown. Meanwhile, prick the eggplant with a fork, then microwave on High for 3-5 mins until soft. Mix the yogurt, egg and parmesan together, then add a little seasoning.

Stir the tomatoes, paste and potatoes in with the beef with some seasoning and heat through. Place into a oven safe baking dish.  I usually use a 9 X 13 glass dish. Smooth the surface of the beef mixture with the back of a spoon, then slice the cooked eggplant and arrange on top. Pour the yogurt mixture over the eggplant, smooth out evenly, then broil until the topping has set and turned golden.

This recipe can be really easy if you have leftover potatoes.  I never seem to have them so I have to cut up and boil some potatoes before I make this so then it actually takes quite a while.  It would be easy otherwise!! Just brown some meat stir it up and throw it in the oven!!! It is always a hit and we have even shared it with our guests who really enjoyed it as well!!!

Sorry no picture this time, next time :)
