Pork Moussaka

I love using up leftovers and am always looking for new ways to incorporate them.

We recently bought an aubergine plant for the garden. When I went shopping I decided to buy some so that the children could have a taste. I decided that the best way for them to have their first taste of aubergine was to make a moussaka. I chose to add the leftover pork for that added bit of flavour!

This is what I did...

Leftover Pork Moussaka


2 red onions, chopped
1 aubergine, sliced
1 courgette, sliced
8 medium mushrooms, sliced
100g mature cheddar cheese, grated
1tsp wholegrain mustard
6 tomatoes, sliced
25g plain flour
25g butter
300mls milk
150g leftover pork, shredded


Pre heat the oven to 200C

1 - Heat 1tbsp of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat and gently cook the onions, courgettes and mushrooms

2 - Brush the slices of aubergine with olive oil and place under a high grill and cook on both sides

3 - Melt the butter in a pan

4 - Mix the flour into the melted butter and heat for a minute

5 - Gradually add the milk a little at a time and stir continuously until you have a sauce

6 - Sprinkle in 75g of the grated cheese and wholegrain mustard

7 - Take an oven proof dish and spoon in half of the onions, mushrooms and courgettes, followed by a layer of aubergines then the pork

8 - Repeat the layers followed by a layer of tomatoes

9 - Pour over the cheese sauce and sprinkle over the remaining grated cheese and place in the centre of the pre heated oven for 30 minutes

This was a delicious meal to introduce aubergines to the children.
