One of my favourite Bulgarian dishes is “musaka / moussaka“. It’s actually of Arabian origin and it’s eaten in many countries, but our version is different because it’s prepared with potatoes instead of eggplants.
Bulgarian musaka is made of potatoes, minced meat and spices, and it’s covered with a top layer of flour, eggs and yogurt. Read more about Bulgarian yogurt here.
I found this youtube video that shows the traditional recipe.
However, at home, we make it a little bit differently. Maybe I’ll share our recipe soon too.

Wow..I could dive in for a big portion, Lol…
Hehe, me too!
It’s delicious, isn’t it? 🙂
I see. Then, if we ever eat musaka together, I can have your portion, haha.
This looks soo yummy!
Thank you so much, Andrew!
yeah, it looks good. i want to try it in the future. but i want to veganize it. maybe i will use potatoes, eggplant, vegan raw milk, creamy cashews, and flour. or, i might just do vegetarian version and use regular milk and yogurt…
You can try making something like a vegan béchamel sauce for the top layer. In Greece they make it like this.
Oh. I would have to research it to figure out what it is first and how to make it. I have been to Greece, and I like Greek food.
I love it too! Which places in Greece have you visited?
athens, the islands, we went everywhere. it was august 1986, and i went with my now late parents. i took a photo sitting on a camel. then, i went riding on a donkey, but i felt sorry for the donkey because he looked very think like he was starving to death. it looked like in bad shape. i felt sorry for the animals in greece. i hope the people there are taking care of them now.
I think the things have changed because I haven’t seen such animals. There are places with stray dogs and cats (unfortunately, it’s the same in Bulgaria too). The natural and historic places are worth visiting though!
yeah, i think you are right, because a couple of years ago, i was chatting with a woman in greece while playing yahoo scrabble, and she said people are better now, and they are working on helping these animals. they were working on changing things.
That just looks amazing!
Thank you so much!

I love the greek version, and this sound so good to me. Potatoes are delicious baked with sauce.
