This is an old family recipe from my great grandmother. It used to be a morning breakfast food in French and Creole homes in Louisiana.

It is still a family favorite and one of the first things kids learn to make in the kitchen and an excellent use of left over rice. So share my families tradition and have some Calas and strong coffee or cafe au lait one morning.
