What is moussaka?

Moussaka is a traditional Greek dish that many would say is comparable to lasagna. Why? It's made from lamb mince that's layered between slices of aubergine and potato, complete with béchamel sauce – delicious – to create a rich and warming dish. It is often served on a Sunday, although we would eat this on any day of the week.

  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 bay leaves

  • 1 beef stock cube

Jules Sebastian, 40, shares the 'burger platter' recipe she swears by

  Jules Sebastian, 40, shares the 'burger platter' recipe she swears by Australian fashion stylist and TV presenter Jules Sebastian has shared her simple recipe for a burger platter, and the mum-of-two said it's the 'perfect' solution for fussy eaters.The 40-year-old said she is a big fan of 'plattering', because not only is it good for picky eaters like her two children, but it's also a 'great way to encourage kids to eat the food they have plated for themselves'.

1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7 and boil the kettle.

2. Slice the potatoes, with the skin on, and the aubergine into rounds.

3. Add both to a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and add generous pinch of salt before baking for 10–15 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, peel and finely dice the onion, then peel and grate or crush the garlic.

5. Heat a large pan with olive oil on a medium heat, then add the red onion, cooking until softened for about three minutes.

6. As this cooks, dissolve the stock cube in 150ml boiling water.

7. Next, add the mince and garlic to the onion, breaking up the lamb to cook it evenly.

8. Once browned, add the chopped tomatoes, stock, bay leaves, oregano and season well. Cook this on a high heat for about five minutes until some of the stock has evaporated.

9. As this thickens, grate the cheese and chop the parsley.

10. Next you'll need to make a roux for the béchamel by melting the butter over a low/medium heat. Next, stir in the flour, combining for a couple of minutes using a wooden spoon until a thick grainy paste is formed. Next you need to gently whisk the milk in, a little bit at a time, until a smooth sauce is created.
