Corn Moussaka

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

This is a delicious casserole. It is also different, with the flavors of corn, tomato, and cinnamon coming together harmoniously. I spotted this recipe in a magazine (Sunset ?) over 25 years ago. I have been making it ever since and I think your family will enjoy it as well. The only liberty I have taken with the recipe is the type of corn used as well as the amount.

Corn Moussaka, tomato cinnamon beef, and delicate cheese custard baked with corn.

350-degree oven

corn, 2 -3 c frozen corn OR 1 - 2 15 oz can corn, drained very well
1 pound lean ground beef
1 T flour
8 oz can tomato sauce
1/4 c water
1/2 t garlic salt
1/4 t rounded top cinnamon - 1/4 t flat top is not enough, but 1/2 t is too much

2 eggs
1 16 oz carton cottage cheese
1/3 c Parmesan cheese

Spread corn in a 1 1/2 qt flat bottom ovenproof casserole.

Brown beef, drain excess fat. Sprinkle with the flour and cook an additional minute. Add garlic salt, cinnamon,  tomato sauce, and water. Stir well and simmer until thick, about 10 minutes, spread over corn.

The garlic, tomato, and cinnamon are absolutely delicious together.
