It’s Thursday and time for my treatment again, so I decided to make something a little extra tasty today. Sometimes you have to make something a little extra good on the not so good days you know.
In Norway they have this amazing moussaka dinner kit, and as you all know I’ve tried on numerous occasions to make moussaka from scratch and failed drastically every time. But I do love a good moussaka so I use this dinner kit to make it. I know it’s not ideal for all food enthusiasts out there to cook with a dinner kit, but this is THEE exception if you ask me. And let’s be honest here, sometimes all you want to do is make things a tiny bit more easier than cooking for three hours. What I really love about this dinner kit is that it only contains two bags, one being a spice mix and the other one being potato flakes with powdered milk or something. All you have to do is add the meat, milk, grated cheese and water. It’s easy, but if you don’t add a twist to it, and if you don’t add your own spices on top of the spice mix in the kit it will not taste good. So today I’m going to give you some tips on how to improve the moussaka dinner kit.
For this dish you use about 1 pound of ground beef, season the meat with all around spice, pepper, red chili flakes, and half a chopped shallot. When the meat is no longer pink you add inn the seasoning mix in the kit, and water as written on the package.
For the potato/milk sauce, you add the potato and powdered milk into sauce pan, add milk as written on the package and season with pepper and half a chopped shallot.
When they both are done, spray a casserole dish with a non-sticking spray. Add the meat sauce then thee potato/milk sauce on top and topp it all off with grated cheese before putting it into the oven as written on the back of the kit.
This is an easy way to spice up this dinner kit, and there are several dinner kits out there that only needs a little push to get good, you know. So go out into the world of dinner kits and kick some ass with your own seasoning. A shallot or some chili makes a whole lot of difference in a lot of different dinner kits I would believe.
I hope y’all are having an amazing Thursday and I hope to see you back here tomorrow for a new post.
