One nice feature of this dish is that you can cook and bake the pie in the same skillet.

Directions

  1. Heat 2 Tbs. oil in a 12-inch ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onions until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, cinnamon and cloves; cook about 1 minute. Add meat, stirring to break it up, and cook about 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and raisins; simmer 10 minutes.
  2. Arrange eggplant slices on a lipped cookie sheet. Brush both sides with remaining oil, and season with salt and pepper. Broil on upper oven rack, turning once with kitchen tongs, until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side.
  3. Reduce heat to 400 degrees. Lay eggplant in a single layer over meat mixture. Whisk egg into mashed potatoes; spread over eggplant. Bake on lower rack until sauce is bubbly, about 20 minutes.

My family liked this one but because I wasn't up on how to handle eggplant ie:salt and drain it first. It was more liquidy than it should have been. Needed a little more instruction for the novice, good flavor tho.

WE loved this. My husband thought he liked it even better than regular Moussaka. I only deviated from the recipe because he had bought "italian seasoned ground turkey" instead of regular. It was just right. I used the steam in bag mashed potatoes (12 oz) and it worked great.

This was absolutely wonderful. I used fresh mashed potatoes (about 7 medium) and fresh diced tomatoes (5 medium) and left out the raisins. Needed a fair bit of salt, and put in some Montreal chicken spice as well - phenom.
