terrific offer for moussaka, different, but undoubtedly delicious! These days will do and share pictures!

Manuela will wait to share how you liked :)

can not miss this recipe, how many times I returned it. Raleigh recipe is perfect and very accurate. I also put and zucchini without frying is very light and tasty. In sauce beshemela put 1 egg for greater lightness but you and without it you achieve perfect topping. Congratulations for the wonderful pictures.

flowers, thank you! With time I realized that when I put an egg in bechamel-plate, I do not like how it smells then. And in bechamel on to meat or vegetables when you serve warm in sauce-boat - always put and loving. Anyone can make a bechamel according to your preferences. The idea here is not to fry the potatoes and eggplants :)

We changed 1/2 th potatoes with zucchini become lighter. Very tasty obtained. Our bake about 2 hours total and was perfect soft but not Muffler.

I am very glad that you liked moussaka :) I do with it just so my friends and even Greeks who initially resented my changes, scroll to the fried version :) Enjoy your meal!

idea without frying is great. I might do with grilled potatoes and eggplants, cut washers. Becomes light and a specific flavor, but I think it should be called *Greek*. But the important thing is to enjoy at home.

said Greek moussaka, as is done in exactly the same products and piecing the same way as we do Greeks. And also to be emphasized that it is not for the Bulgarian version of this dish.
