  • Ingredients
    4 aubergines
    olive oil
    1 onion, chopped
    2 cloves of garlic, crushed
    450g/1 lb minced lamb
    3 plum tomatoes, diced
    pinch of cinnamon powder
    pinch of cumin powder
    1 glass of red wine
    150ml/5fl oz chicken stock
    200ml/7fl oz white sauce
    2 eggs
    pinch of nutmeg
    100g/4oz grated cheese (half mozzarella, half Cheddar)
    2 tbsp fresh mint, chopped
    freshly ground black pepper
    Preparation method
    Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas5.
    Slice the aubergines then fry them on both sides in a large pan with a little olive oil. Drain on kitchen paper. To save on washing up, use the same pan with a little more olive oil and fry off the onions and garlic.
    After five minutes turn the heat up and add the lamb to brown it, then add the tomatoes. Add a good pinch of cumin and cinnamon with the wine and sauté together to break up the tomatoes. Add the chopped mint and the stock in stages.
    In an ovenproof dish, layer the aubergines and lamb mince in a few layers, finishing with a layer of aubergines.
    Combine the white sauce with the eggs, nutmeg and seasoning. Spoon over the top of the mince and then scatter with the grated cheese.
    Bake in the oven 20-25minutes to colour the cheese and cook through.

  • Try seach to MKR website, the twins contestant have that recipe.

  • I’m back, I’ve just been over to the Recipe section and another Mum has posted a really nice recipe for Moussaka that you might be interested in. If you use the search box, you’ll find it.

  • I’m probably not going to be much help as you probably wanted one that has been tried and tested by one of the mums on here. I get a lot of my recipes from sites like best recipes, taste.com and all recipes as they have been rated and many of them commented on. Hope you find one that suits.
