Moussaka is the National Dish of Greece. It has three layers that are separately cooked before being combined for the meal: a bottom layer of sliced eggplant sautés in olive oil; a middle layer of ground beef lightly cooks with chopped or puréed tomatoes, onion, garlic, and spices (cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and black pepper); and a top layer of potato that will cook to make a top "mash" potato layer. Optional you can add a Béchamel sauce or savoury custard. The composed dish is then layered into a tinfoil pan and cooked until the top layer is browned. Moussaka is usually served warm, not piping hot; if cut hot out of the crock-pot, moussaka squares tend to slide apart and consequently the dish needs some resting time to firm up before serving.
