DIRECTIONS
  1. In a food processor, process the onions until finely chopped. Add the meat and 1/2 cup water, salt, pepper, cumin and allspice. Process until smooth. Add the bulgur wheat, parsley and pine nuts....mix briefly. Form into 6 patties and cook as you normally would any other burger.
RECIPE BACKSTORY
I had an excess of bulgur wheat and was given a recipe for Kibbeh. It reminded me to much of meatloaf (not a huge meatloaf fan.....so unamerican of me) so I decided to make a burger instead.
