Traditional Greek Moussaka - Layers of eggplant with beef in tomato sauce and topped with Béchamel Sauce. Authentic, classic Greek food!

22 · 70 minutes · This traditional Greek Moussaka recipe is from the The Food and Cooking of Greece cookbook. I have adapted it slightly and made notes where I have made changes. Though it seems like there are a lot of steps, this recipe has a nice flow to it. Prepare the eggplant first, and while they are sweating, make the filling. While the filling is simmering away, make the béchamel sauce. Then put it all together to bake!
