We've jazzed up an old favourite and it's delicious! Suitable as a baby food for your weaning tot, this tasty and satisfying moussaka is the perfect family meal that everyone can enjoy. 

This Greek dish is traditionally made with either aubergines or potatoes; in this moussaka recipe, we used potatoes.

Cook time: 1 hour 30 mins
Makes: 4 Adult portions

2 tbsp olive oil
1 onion finely chopped
2 carrots, roughly chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp thyme
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
500g quality minced lamb
400g tin chopped tomatoes
2 tbsp tomato purée
235 ml low salt vegetable stock
4 potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp plain flour
370ml full fat milk
380g Cheddar cheese, grated
1 egg, beaten

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a large pan. Cook the onions, carrots and garlic until they brown. Stir in the herbs and cinnamon.
  2. Add the minced lamb and brown for 3-4 minutes. Stir in the chopped tomatoes, tomato purée and stock. Bring to the boil before reducing to a simmer for 30-40 minutes. 
  3. Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a frying pan. Brown the potatoes in batches, for 1-2 minutes on each side. 
  4. For the topping, melt the butter in a small saucepan and stir in the flour. Cook for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in the milk. Once thickened, remove from the heat and stir in the cheese. Allow to cool slightly before beating in the egg.
  5. Line a casserole dish with half of the potatoes. Layer on the mince mixture and top with the remaining potatoes.
  6. Pour the cheese sauce on top. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until it is fully cooked and the top is golden-brown.
  7. For a baby not able for texture, blend the sauce and serve with mashed potato.
