Kibbeh is a traditional Lebanese snack shaped like a football and made with bulgur wheat and deep fried. Bulgur wheat is a variety of dry cracked wheat often used in European, Middle Eastern, and Indian cuisine. These potato and bulgur wheat fritters feature fresh parsley for additional flavor. Allow yourself time to refrigerate the mixture before shaping and frying. Serve with a yogurt dip for a tasty Lebanese inspired appetizer.
