State Day in Serbia

Musaka, not to be confused with the Greek moussaka, is a well-known dish in the Baltic states and a real cuddle dish.

A little olive oil

2 onions, finely chopped

500 g ground beef or ground beef

1 tbsp vegeta, possibly crushed vegetable broth cube

Salt and pepper

1.4 kg potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced (approx. 6 mm)


4 store egg

240 g sour cream

3.5 dl milk

2 teaspoons vegeta, possibly crushed stock cube

1 ts pepper

Parsley, finely chopped for garnish

Grease a baking dish (about 23 x 33 cm with olive oil.

Lightly brown the onion in oil in a frying pan, add the minced meat and chop it into pieces. Brown further, add vegeta and season with pepper. If more salt is needed, stir in more vegeta.

Place 1/3 of the potato slices evenly over the baking dish. Spread half of the ground beef over, before spreading the next 1/3 of the potatoes over. Add the rest of the ground beef and finally the rest of the potatoes, preferably in a nice pattern.

Whisk together the ingredients for the egg stand and carefully pour it over the minced meat and potatoes. Bake musaka in the middle of the oven at 200 degrees until the potatoes are tender and the top is golden brown. It takes approx. 45 – 60 min.

Let the mold stand for 10 minutes before sprinkling the parsley, slicing the musaka, and serving.

Serve with a salad, e.g. šopska salad, which you will find a recipe for HERE.
