I'm no expert, but I added another egg, more cheese, and a bit of flour to help keep them together. Also, you can use a more sticky rice to help. It's incredibly important that you do not flip them too soon while cooking! If you do all of this, you will not have them break apart! :D I also sprinkled seasoning salt after and ate them with sour cream! YUM!

These were delicious, but they are really, REALLY hard to keep together, hence the 4 star rating. I used leftover yellow rice, so that added a nice flavor to these. I am wondering what I can add to hold them together better...I mixed everything up (even using all of the optional ingredients, except for the meat), formed the patties and let them 'set up' in the fridge all day before frying them in hopes of avoiding breakage. Some did stay together, but the majority did not. They still are delicious, and I plan on coming up with a solution to the breaking problem. Thanks for sharing. :)
