Couscous made into crispy cheddar cakes.
In a bowl combine couscous, salt, pepper, chives and eggs.
Fold in cheddar cheese.
Form couscous mixture into patties.
Heat olive oil in a large saute pan. Place half of the couscous patties in hot pan.
Cook 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown.
Remove from heat and repeat with remaining patties.
To form patties, I like to use a scoop and place on a lined baking sheet. Flatten cakes with your hands or the bottom of a flat glass.
Can be eaten with a salad or as an appetizer with a blue cheese dressing or ranch dip.
