Macedonian Moussaka With Potatoes and Minced Meat

There are plenty of moussaka recipes, this one is simple and I use it very often to prepare one of the most delicious Balkan foods. Mainly it is prepared with potato slices and minced meat.



  • 500 g minced meat
  • 1,5 kg potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 glass of milk or yogurt 
  • 300ml water
  • salt
  • spices  
  • oil


1.Finely chop the onion and fry it in a small amount of oil in a pan, add the meat and fry together. Add some salt and spices.

2. Cut potatoes in slices (the thinner the better) and arrange half in an ovenproof dish, then add the meat and put above the rest of the potatoes.

3. Add oil and salt on top, add water and bake in the oven at 250 degrees for about 30-40 minutes. 
4. When potatoes start to change color, add a mixture of eggs and milk (or yogurt) in the pan where we fried the meat and overflow moussaka with the sauce. Return to bake 10 more minutes.
