This is the most versatile recipe on the planet! I created this dish when I had a lot of leftover rice to use up. It is great for that, but now I cook extra rice, so I can make these Amazing Rice Cakes during the week. I add bacon, ham, shrimp, other vegetables and different seasonings. Just go crazy. You will love all the variations that can be made. Guess what? They are definitely company worthy and kids love them! Enjoy!

How To Make bonnie's amazing rice cakes

  • Helpful tips for what you can do with this recipe!
    This is a very versatile recipe. It is both, a side dish or a complete entrée. You can make the cakes as written with just broccoli, or get creative and add a huge variety of different vegetables, shrimp, bacon, ham, and chicken. Change it up!
  • Use grape seed oil and sesame oil or peanut oil. I have also used olive oil.
    Heat grapeseed oil and sesame oil in medium skillet over medium heat. (You can use olive oil, or peanut oil, too) You can also cook these cakes in an electric skillet.
  • Broccoli and green onion
    Chop broccoli and green onion
  • Beat the egg
    Beat an egg with a fork in a small mixing bowl.
  • Mix well
    Add the rice, broccoli, green onions and cheese to the beaten egg in the bowl and mix well. The mixture should be stiff enough to pat with your hands into a couple of cakes about 3 or 4 inches in diameter. If not, add a little more rice to it.
  • Frying amazing rice cakes
    Fry the two rice cakes in the hot oil. Gently turn when brown and fry the other side. When it is a nice golden brown, remove to a platter and keep warm.
