Risotto Cakes

Tonight I used up my leftover cheesy, garlicky rice with spinach in risotto cakes.  They were so tasty, I thought I'd share the idea incase you still had some in your fridge.  I used a recipe from Barefoot Contessa's Back to Basics cookbook.  Shape the rice into cakes, coat with panko bread crumbs and pan fry with a little olive oil.  Made a really easy Sunday night dinner.
No dredging in egg, just press the
bread crumbs onto the cake

Dinner in 15 minutes!


  1. Brilliant! I stuffed my leftovers into peppers like the bonne idee, but I will remember this for next time.

  2. What a great idea! Those looks so delicious.

  3. I would have loved those! I love the contrast of the crispy outside with the creamy inside.

  4. favorite thing back when I ate rice! they look delicious.
