7/11/2010 (ZC) Moussaka Pics & Recipe

I have to say that the Moussaka came out pretty good IMO. I use to make this LC. I simply removed all the LC items (veggies) and it came out better than before. DW did not care for the LC version, but really like my (ZC) version. The following are the pics then the recipe:

(ZC) Moussaka


4 Oopsie Rolls
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 T. garlic powder (or 1 T minced garlic)
2 lb. ground chuck (80/20)
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 T butter (glass 8x8 glass baking dish)
1 cup whole milk ricotta cheese
1 cup heavy Whipping cream
1/2 tsp. paprika
2 eggs
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Ground Beef mixture
In a large skillet, Add ground beef, oregano, cumin, garlic, salt and pepper. Brown evenly.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine ricotta cheese, heavy whipping cream, salt and paprika. Add eggs and blend together.

In a buttered glass 8 X 8 baking dish, layer Oopsie Rolls on bottom (they will overlap), then ground beef. Pour ricotta cheese mixture over layered ingredients. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese. Place Moussaka in the oven and bake for 40 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes. Cut into 6 servings and serve warm.

I ate it with a nice lamb shoulder chop (medium). The Oopsie Rolls really helped to keep the bottom in place. This was my first time making the (ZC) version and I was pleased.

Sharon F, I hope you get a chance to try it. I also think I got my pic size is under control. The first time I posted pics they were too big. Then I adjusted them and they looked too small. I think these are just right. I guess this recipe could be posted under "Meat", "Cheese" or "Oopsie Rolls".

I hope that anyone who tries it will enjoy it as much as I did. Opa!!!!
