  1. In a saucepan, melt the butter. Add the flour and cook for 1 minute. Add the milk and bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the cheese and remove from the heat.
  2. In a skillet over medium heat, brown the eggplant in the remaining oil, a few slices at a time, about 3 minutes on each side. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F).
  4. In a 20 X 30-cm (12 x 8-inch) baking dish, alternately layer eggplants, the meat mixture and a second layer of eggplants. Pour bechamel sauce over the mixture and sprinkle with breadcrumbs.
  5. Bake for about 25 minutes, then brown under the broiler. Let rest 10 minutes before serving. If you are planning on making the moussaka on Sunday to serve on Thursday, freeze it in small portions. All you’ll nee is to thaw it in the microwave after work.
