Baked Couscous

I am such a lucky gal to have such a great husband that is willing to try just about anything that I cook for him. Tonight served as a nice reminder of that feeling. Couscous. Never have I ever cooked it, never have I ever ate it..

uh oh.

No, no… it turned out really great! Victory dance over here folks!

Have you ever had couscous? What are your thoughts? Favorite way to cook it?

Baked Couscous

Ingredients:

4 Egg whites
1 Box couscous
1 Cup whole milk
1 1/3 Cup heavy cream
1 Cup Gouda cheese, grated
1 Cup sharp cheddar, grated
1 Cup Feta cheese, crumbles
1 Small yellow onion, chopped fine
1/4 Cup fresh or dry chives
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Heat oven to (400 degrees) or 200 degrees Celsius. Beat eggs, milk, heavy cream, onion, and cheeses. Then once well blended, add couscous, salt and pepper. Mix again until blended in with liquid cheese mixture. Then pour into a greased baking dish. Cover with foil bake for 30 minutes. Once 30 minutes ends, uncover and bake an additional 30 more minutes, or until you get that nice brown and firm consistency.

Try paring with a nice chopped beet and yogurt salad as a side. Have fun, dress up the meal with swanky little cups as serving dishes too!
