Leila-- I have been trying to find a recipe for baked kibbeh similar to the kibbeh I remember in a restaurant on Atlantic Ave. in Brooklyn, very many years ago. And this one seems to be it! It may be faulty memory on my part, but are there variations with a hint of cumin as well?

The problem is spelling it! Kibbe, Kibbee, Kibbeh. Last week I baked kibbeh for my son who was on leave from Mosul. I had never tried making kibbeh and I am 57 but it was a childhood favorite (along with everything else on the table at my Lebanese friends' house.) Anyway I saw a bag at Costco that held about two cups of pine nuts and that settled the menu for me. IT turned out OK but you should try my wife's tabbouli. It's to die for.

Looks great! I've been on the prowl for a bulghar kubba recipe that was less fatty than the fried varieties...will give yours a try. :o)
