  1. Mix rice, onion, Cheddar cheese, egg, garlic, salt, red pepper flakes, black pepper, parsley, and onion powder by hand in a bowl.
  2. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
  3. From rice mixture into 4 small patties.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry patties in hot oil until lightly browned, about 5 minutes per side.

  • Use whatever type of cheese you like.
  • Be careful when flipping; they sometimes break, but still are tasty!

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...

I baked mines in the oven like you would do macaroni & cheese & it turned out perfect... When I heated leftovers up I fried it with olive oil to brown it as directed in this recipe

Great recipie! Last day before payday so I used what I had on hand. Arborio rice, mozzarella, parm and gluten free Italian bread crumbs. Seasoned the rice with garlic powder, onion powder, salt ...

Made it like recipe says, but changing up a few things like previous poster mentioned. More cheese, added an extra egg and a bit of flour. Liked the simple taste and recipe.

I had leftover chicken broccoli riceroni, so the cheese and onions married beautifully with it. It was a little hard to work with, so I did end up adding another egg and some flour. Delicious wi...

I thought they were simple but very good. I'll make these again.
