Moussaka Cottage Pie

Moussaka Cottage Pie
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 medium onions, cut into medium dice
  • 3 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef or turkey
  • 2 cups canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup dark or golden raisins
  • 1 pound eggplant, cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 (24 ounce) package refrigerated mashed potatoes, warmed in the microwave according to instructions
  • 1 large egg, beaten



  1. Heat 2 Tbs. oil in a 12-inch ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onions until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, cinnamon and cloves; cook about 1 minute. Add meat, stirring to break it up, and cook about 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and raisins; simmer 10 minutes.
  2. Arrange eggplant slices on a lipped cookie sheet. Brush both sides with remaining oil, and season with salt and pepper. Broil on upper oven rack, turning once with kitchen tongs, until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side.
  3. Reduce heat to 400 degrees. Lay eggplant in a single layer over meat mixture. Whisk egg into mashed potatoes; spread over eggplant. Bake on lower rack until sauce is bubbly, about 20 minutes.
