Absolutely Delicious: Meatloaf Plus!

For Shabbat lunch I made something that's more meatloaf than moussaka. It's so easy to make and great heated on the electric hotplate. And you can make it for any occasion, and of course you don't have to be Jewish...

Very simple:
  • Layer the bottom of the baking dish (diameter of mine is about 26cm = 10inches*) with slices of eggplant.
  • Mix 2 lbs or just under a kilo of chopped/ground beef/chicken/turkey or a combination with a diced onion, tomato paste/concentrate, a couple of eggs and garlic.
  • Spread the meat mixture on the eggplant, and then decorate with more eggplant slices and some sliced tomato.
  • Bake in hot oven loosely covered with foil until you can see that the meat has moved from the edge of the pan, and liquid is visible, like a moat
It also freezes well and has no carbohydrates at all.

*Adjust quantity to the size of your baking dish.
