Moussaka is a classic Greek dish, perfect for any occasion where there are a large group of guests attending, such as family dinner, birthday parties or name day celebrations. If you are cooking “just for two” then you might want to cut up the Moussaka into a few smaller pieces, store them in containers and then eat it for lunch throughout the week.
Our feature chef Jennifer Pallian from the blog Foodess describes Moussaka as your mum’s shepherd’s pie meets your mum’s lasagne. Moussaka is traditionally baked with potatoes, eggplant, meat and cheese which certainly makes the dish “hard core comfort food”.
