Egypt-Shery Mesbah-Eggplant Moussaka

Moussaka is a common dish in the Mediterranean region. The Egyptian version of it is very famous and usually part of any big family food gatherings. It is often left in the fridge overnight and eaten the next day. This gives the eggplant slices time to soak in the juices and flavors of the cooked ground beef for even more deliciousness. It is commonly eaten with either rice or freshly baked Egyptian bread (Balady bread).
