  • 1 cup cooked couscous cooled
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh chives chopped
  • 2 whole eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  1. In a bowl combine couscous, salt, pepper, chives and eggs. 

  2. Fold in cheddar cheese. 

  3. Form couscous mixture into patties.

  4. Heat olive oil in a large saute pan. Place half of the  couscous patties in hot pan. 

  5.  Cook 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown. 

  6. Remove from heat and repeat with remaining patties. 

Recipe Notes

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.
