I was kind of worried how this recipe would turn out, due to the diversity of reviews (e.g., "this was great with such and such changes", and "this was terrible! no flavor!"). I mostly followed the recipe. I did use less veggies: 1 zucchini, 1/2 of a GIANT yellow onion, 1 green bell pepper (I don't like red bells), added 2 cloves of minced garlic. Followed the rest of the recipe, and made sure to let it sit for 15+ minutes once all the ingredients were added, so that the couscous wouldn't be crunchy (as per another reviewer's advice). I don't like BBQ sauce or ketchup, so I topped each one with some 30-minute bottled teriyaki marinade. I cooked for 20 minutes on ~370 degrees, but my oven runs very hot so it probably evened out to about 400. It made 19 "meatloaf muffins", and they are SO good! I tested almost half of them with the meat thermometer, as I am paranoid about food safety, and they were well over 165 degrees, but so moist and good! I definitely would like to make these again--a real keeper!!! thanks very much to all the reviewers!
