Moussaka With Artichokes
(Moussaka Me Anginares)
What You Need:
  • Four 10-ounce packages frozen artichoke hearts
  • 2 sticks (½ pound) butter
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • ½ cup chopped onions
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 quart hot milk
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup grated kefalotiri cheese
  • ½ teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • ¼ cup breadcrumbs

  • How To Cook:
    1. Drop artichokes into boiling salted water, return to boil, and cook for 3 minutes. Drain thoroughly in a colander. Place in heatproof dish.

    2. Brown 6 tablespoons butter. Pour over artichokes and set aside.

    3. Saute meat and onions in 2 tablespoons butter until lightly browned. Add tomato sauce, wine, dill, salt, and pepper; simmer for 15 minutes.

    4. Preheat oven to 350°F.

    5. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs over the bottom of a 9 by 13 by 1¾-inch roasting pan. Place half the artichokes over the breadcrumbs. Pour one third of the sauce over artichokes.

    6. Spread meat mixture over sauce. Pour in one third of the sauce, add the remaining artichokes, and cover with the final third of the sauce.

    7. Sprinkle with remaining grated cheese. Bake for 35 minutes, or until golden brown.

    1. Melt 1 butter stick in a saucepan. Add flour and stir to blend. Gradually add milk and then the eggs, stirring constantly.

    2. Cook over low heat until sauce is smooth and thickened.

    3. Add ½ cup grated cheese and cook a few minutes longer, stirring constantly. Stir in white pepper and salt.

    4. Cover tightly and place over hot water to keep warm.

        Two 28-ounce cans of artichokes can be substituted for the frozen. Drain canned artichokes in a colander and rinse under cold water for 5 minutes to remove salty brine.
