My family doesn't care for leftover wild rice, but this one left them wanting more! Like potato pancakes, but with wild rice instead of potatoes.

The wild rice pancakes were phenomenal. I like wild rice and tend to make a lot of it. I cut the recipe in half but kept the ½ cup of onions. I like onions. I used finely minced white onion instead of green onion and I used flour instead of tapioca. I didn't have any of those items . And, I fried the cakes in bacon grease left over from the bacon I prepared with the cakes. The cakes held together nicely and were very tasty! Read More

I used a box of Uncle Ben's Long Grain and Wild Rice and these turned out great! Maybe just a tad too eggy but still great. If you are going to use 2 eggs I recommend using medium instead of large. The mixture is pretty gummy so to make things easier I used an ice cream scoop to put it in the skillet and then just smashed it down with a spatula. Great recipe and one I will make again! Read More

I just made these using some leftover wild rice pilaf I had from another dish. It already had bacon onion celery and garlic. I just added onion powder parsley egg and some flour (I didn't have any tapioca.) They were amazing! Read More

great way to use up extra wild rice! I followed the recipe as is, and it worked out well. I used my cast iron pan, so turned down the heat a bit to keep from burning. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
