EOS Greek - Favorite Dish - Mousaka

EOS is sharing their recipe for Mousaka, one of their restaurant's favorite dish.  Check it out below.
1 ½ lbs. Ground Beef
1 lb. Potatoes
2  Large Purple Eggplants

4  Medium Zucchini
2  finely chopped Tomatoes
1  cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1  finely chopped Onion
1  minced Garlic
½ cup chopped Parsley
2  tsp Salt
¼ tsp Black Pepper
¼ tsp Cinnamon

2  Eggs
3 cups Whole Milk
3 tbsp Butter
7 tbsp All-Purpose Flour
¼ tsp Black Pepper
½ tsp Salt
¼ tsp Nutmeg
Cut eggplant, potatoes and zucchini into 1/3 inch slices. Heat oil in a large frying pan and fry eggplant slices a few at a time, until slightly browned. Repeat the process with the potatoes and zucchini. Set aside on a cookie sheet with paper towels to drain the oil and cool.
In a large skillet, saute the meat, onion, and garlic in the olive oil. Add tomatoes, salt and pepper and half of the cinnamon. Cover and simmer over low heat until meat has cooked through. Remove from heat, add chopped parsley and set aside.
Preheat the oven at 350°
In a large sauce pan, heat the milk over low heat. In another sauce pan, melt the butter and stir in the flour until it reaches an even consistency. Slowly add the warm milk, whisking continually into the flour-butter mix. Add salt, pepper and nutmeg. When the mixture cools, beat the eggs in a separate bowl and slowly whisk in.
Coat a baking dish with olive oil. Layer potatoes into the baking dish, then layer the zucchini. Cover with the meat mixture. Layer the eggplant over the meat. Top with bechamel sauce and bake for 45 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
Let cool for 10 minutes and serve.
