Recipe (not really a recipe...just a method of using up leftover rice)
- 2 cups cooked rice
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 cup shredded cheese
- 1/2 cup chopped parsley
- oil for the skillet (opt.)
Stir all ingredients together, and drop spoonfuls onto a hot, non-stick skillet (or an oiled skillet). Let them sear for a few seconds on high heat, then flip the whole dollop over with a spatula and compress into a patty. It's easier to press it down on the seared side without the rice sticking to the spatula. Let it cook and get toasted by heating a few minutes on both sides. Best enjoyed while they're warm because the cheese will be gooey inside. It tastes even better with some mayo or Miracle Whip on top.
