Sounds funny...tastes great!

Thank you Rachel, Amanda and Georgia for posting recipes on Everyday Meals! Thank you Sarah for reviewing the Creamy White Chilli after you made it. Comments are always helpful!

It's great if you do, but others who make the meal can also log-on and post photos later.

Now for the recipe.

Corn Moussaka

Makes 6 servings.

Preheat oven at 350 degrees.

1 15-17-ounce can whole kernel corn, drained (the large size)
1 ½ pounds ground beef/turkey
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 slightly beaten eggs
1 ½ cups cottage cheese
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 4-ounce package (1 cup) shredded mozzarella cheese
Slivered almonds (optional)

Spread corn in an ungreased shallow 1 ½-quart casserole or a 10x6x2-inch baking dish. In medium skillet brown ground beef or turkey; drain off excess fat and juices. Add flour; cook and stir for 1 minute. Stir in tomato sauce, garlic salt, and cinnamon; pour over corn in dish. Bake in 350 degree oven for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, combine eggs and cottage cheese; spread over meat mixture. Top with Parmesan and mozzarella; sprinkle nuts over, if desired. Bake 10 to 15 minutes more.

Tip: I made this for the first time with ground turkey and it turned out great! You can use any type of cottage cheese as well. Enjoy!
