How to Make Potato Moussaka

Moussaka is Balkans, Eastern Mediterranean, and Middle Eastern dish. It looks like casserole; there are layers of vegetables and ground meat. Hearing word “moussaka” people usually think of eggplant, but it could be made from a lot of different vegetables. This one is my favorite: Potatoes moussaka. Amount of ingredients depends on the size of your casserole dish.

Ingredients:
Potato (my favorite is Yukon gold potato)
Grinded meat (chicken, turkey, pork, beef, or any combination)
Onion
Garlic
Carrots
Celery
Parsley, salt, black pepper, Vegeta (special blend of seasonings is possible to buy at Eastern Europeans stores)
Eggs
Milk
Optional:

Ketchup

Saute diced onion; add chopped carrots, celery sticks, garlic, and stir occasionally. When it is soft add ground meat, salt, black pepper, Vegeta, stir and saute until meat loses its pink color.
