Moussaka with Ground Beef and Potatoes (in slovenian)

Potato moussaka


  • 1 1/2 lb of potato
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 lb of ground beef (you may substitute pork or chicken)
  • 1 1/2 cups of tomato sauce
  • fresh basil
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup of yogurt
  • 1/2 cup of grated cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Boil the peeled potatoes until tender, but not cooked completely. Meanwhile, in a sauce pan, melt the butter and add the chopped onion and ground meat. Fry the meat and onion for about 5 min then add the tomato sauce and the basil.
  3. Now, slice the potatoes about 1/2 cm wide. Grab a 9×13 pan and coat it lightly with olive oil. Now we start layering, start with a layer of potatoes, we can probably make 3 layers of potatoes, but at least 2 layers, so one layer of potatoes, one layer of the meat, then repeat until finished, the top layer should be potatoes.
  4. Mix the yogurt with the beaten egg and spread over the potatoes, then sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Now of course instead of the yogurt you could make a bechamel sauce, but this is just as delicious, and easier.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes.
  6. Now you may say, Jo, this isn’t really easy, seems like a lot of steps, but really if you think about it, it’s quite simple, meat and potatoes and you layer them. It’s a bit time consuming because you have to wait for the potatoes to boil, but come on, trust me it will be worth it in the end.
