Ingredients

Directions

Special equipment: a deep-fry thermometer; a 10 3/8-by-12 3/4-by-6-inch pan

Mix the eggplant and 2 tablespoons of the salt in a large bowl. Arrange the eggplant in a perforated pan and put in the refrigerator to drain the moisture, about 20 minutes.

Put 5 cups of the oil in a heavy-bottom pot and heat to 350 degrees F. Add the flour to a large bowl and dredge the eggplant in the flour; in a separate bowl, whisk 5 eggs until combined. Dip a few pieces of the floured eggplant in the eggs, shake off any excess and fry until golden brown, about 30 seconds. Transfer the eggplant to a baking sheet set with a cooling rack to drain. Repeat with the remaining eggplant.

Heat a large skillet with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add the diced onions and saute until translucent, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the ground beef, black pepper and remaining 1 tablespoon salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the ground beef is brown, 10 to 15 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Brush a 10 3/8-by-12 3/4-by-6-inch pan with oil. 

Cover the bottom of the pan with a layer of fried eggplant and top with some of the ground beef mixture. Repeat the layering process 4 more times with the eggplant then the ground beef, and top with a final layer of eggplant. Bake for 15 minutes.

Whisk the milk and remaining 5 eggs in a bowl, pour over the hot musaka and bake until cooked through, about 15 minutes more. Cut into 12 pieces and serve on top of marinara sauce or Greek yogurt.
