Baked Couscous Poppers


  • 2 cups water
  • 10 ounces uncooked couscous (You can use plain couscous or boxed couscous that comes with a flavor packet that you like.)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs (I used panko, but any breadcrumbs would work.)
  • spices, to taste
  • 1 3/4 cup shredded cheese (Use any kind you like.)





  1. In a small saucepan on high heat, bring water to a boil.
  2. Stir in couscous.
  3. Immediately remove from heat. Cover and let sit for five minutes.
  4. Remove cover, fluff couscous with a fork and set aside to cool.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  6. Once couscous is cool, mix in eggs, 1/2 cup of the breadcrumbs, spices, and cheese.
  7. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat.
  8. Roll couscous mixture into balls.
  9. Roll the balls in the remaining half cup of breadcrumbs. It won't seem like they are very solidified. That's OK. The balls will get a crunchy protective layer when they bake.
  10. Bake for thirty minutes or until the balls are lightly browned on the outside.
  11. Serve warm.
