I added a extra cup of water, 3eggs lightly beaten, and I covered it with foil. My family loved it and I will be making it again

Ingredients are off for sure. Made it once as per recipe but adding a little extra water. Still turned out very dry and hard. Also added eggs to hold it together. I am going to give it another shot but this time am going to cook the bulgar wheat first. I think that will fix most of the problem I had. This recipe does have the potential for 5 stars I think, if I can only tweak it until it comes out right.

I think the amounts in this recipe are off. For the amount of TVP and bulgur in this recipe I think you need a lot more liquid than 3/4 c. Maybe the ketchup should be mixed in and not just brushed on top? You also need something to hold it together. In any case, this came out really really dry and crumbly. Threw it out.
