Also, this seems to be “How to” week at $5 Dinners! From the split chicken breasts to the mangoes and now eggplant. I have always “feared” eggplant because I didn’t know what to do with it. Have that same problem? Fear no more. I’ve got step by step directions with photos below!
I’ve been wanting to try moussaka for a long time, but knew that I couldn’t pull it off for under $5. I used the recipe from Joy of Cooking and simplified it quite a bit. I did not use any Greek yogurts or cheeses. Yes, I know those are the KEY ingredients to the dish, but I’m trying to keep it frugal and simple here.
