10-Minute Rice Cakes

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"Growing up, I remember my dad making these for me every time we had leftover rice in the fridge. I generally make these for breakfast but occasionally enjoy them for dinner when my husband is out of town and I want to make something quick and easy. This recipe is a great base. Have fun changing it up and making it your own! Great topped with salsa!"

Thanks Lowe! This made for a nice, simple snack. I sprinkled a little cinnamon over mine.
