This comfort Kibbeh Akras food is basically meat wrapped around meat! The bulgur, which is a type of wheat, gives the dish the heartiness it requires to keep you full throughout the day. Make a large batch because Kibbeh Akras can be prepared and frozen ahead of time and baked as needed.

Kibbeh Akras

Kibbeh Akras are meatballs made with bulgur and finely ground meat that are all perfectly spiced. They are a rather classic and easy-to-make Middle-Eastern dish originating from Lebanon. The meat is actually stuffed in a hollow shell made of bulgur and minced meat.
