This is the Bulgarina version of mousaka. Summer savory is the spice that gives it its special taste. Very easy to make. This is the Bulgarina version of mousaka. Summer savory is the spice that gives it its special taste. Very easy to make.
Number of Servings: 8


    -cooking spray
    -1 cup raw onion, chopped into small pcs
    -about 2 lbs of potatoes, peeled and chopped into small cubes (qty could bw adjusted depending on the size of the baking pan)
    -1.5 lbs of gound beef/turkey/pork (either one is fine)
    -1 cup canned (or fresh) tomatoes cut into small pcs
    - salt and pepper to taste
    -summer savory
    3/4 of a large container of plain yogurt
    1 or 2 eggs
    3 tbsp of flour


Preheat the oven to 400F. Cover a baking pan with cooking spray and add chopped onions. Add a little bit of water and let the onions sautee in the oven for about 3 min. Add ground beef (which will release additional grease for the meal). Season with salt, pepper and savory. Use a spoon to break down the beef into small crumbs. Let it cook in the oven for 5-10 min, while stirring ocasionally to make sure the meat does not clump. When the meat is almost cooked add the chopped potatoes, canned/chopped tomatoes and more savory (to taste). Add water to cover the potatoes. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for about 15 min. Remove foil and bake for another 25 min. (If you added too much water, you can remove the foil earlier to allow the water to evaporate).
Crust prep: In a separate bowl, add the yogurt, egg(s) and flour and mix together to get a smooth mixture.
Once the potatoes seem to be cooked through, spread the yogurt mixture over the meal and let it bake for another 10 min until the crust turns golden. Let it cool down a little/absorb the remaining water before serving. Serve warm.
Optional: Serve with cold yogurt on the side.
