A delicious and different side dish that goes with any meat. It works equally well for a family supper or a special dinner. Wild rice can be substituted for brown rice for a more formal dinner.

About as good as it gets. The taste is spectacular they're filling they're cheap to make and they're really healthy for you. The first time I made exactly according the the recipe. Second time around added about a quarter cup of Parmesan cheese and used corn right off the cob that I had roasted first. Even better. Highly recommended recipe. Read More

I was really looking forward to these but we all found them fairly bland. I wish I had used fresh off the cob corn as I think that would have added flavor. Read More

I used chopped onions instead of chives and soy milk instead of cow's milk. Great tasting breakfast instead of pancakes! Read More

I made this on a whim after trying to figure out what to do with a ton of brown rice I had. They were delicious! I didn't have chives so I used chopped onion as the other reviewer suggested. I also didn't have nutmeg so I subbed with 1/8 tsp of chili powder and paprika. They were really really tasty! My kids ate theirs with a little ketchup and went back for seconds. This one is definitely a keeper. Read More

As the poster of this recipe I agree with some of the comments about improving the recipe. I wrote it to be simple easy to prepare and use ingredients that are generally available in the pantry. For guests I use fresh corn off the cob and wild rice. I also sprinkle a pinch of salt on the fried cakes -- it helps to bring out the flavor. I'm happy some have enjoyed the recipe! Read More

Rather bland I liked the over all taste but I might experiment with some spices later on. I used frozen corn that is what we had and soymilk. Read More

I changed this recipe up by adding a little honey (a few table spoons) to the mix and served the cakes with pure maple syrup. Instead of olive oil I used Pam no-calorie no fat non-stick spray and omitted the chives. The cakes were excellent and very well received by my family. Read More
