These savory rice cakes are a delightful way to transform leftover rice into a crispy, flavorful snack or side dish. Perfect for any meal of the day, these patties are easy to make and packed with deliciousness.



  1. Combine the cooked rice, chopped onion, shredded Cheddar cheese, beaten egg, minced garlic, salt, red pepper flakes, ground black pepper, chopped parsley, and onion powder in a large mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly by hand until all ingredients are well incorporated. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for a minimum of 30 minutes.
  2. Shape the rice mixture into 4 small patties.
  3. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook the patties in the hot oil until they are lightly browned, approximately 5 minutes on each side.


  • – Feel free to add other herbs or spices to the mixture to suit your taste.
    – These patties can be served with a dipping sauce like sour cream, yogurt, or a spicy aioli.
    – If you want to make them ahead, you can freeze the uncooked patties and fry them directly from the freezer, adding a few extra minutes to the cooking time.
