Greek moussaka (layered casserole of eggplant, minced meat)

Greek moussaka (emphasis on the last word) is a casserole made of eggplant and lamb, sometimes beef, pork or chicken minced meat, covered with a thick layer of b├ęchamel sauce, which becomes hard and golden in the process of cooking.

We cook easily and deliciously with Smakota (!
