I love sticky rice. So much so that I don't even have to measure out my water. I can throw 2 cups of rice into my cooker and then add water to the line that is engraved now on the side. The problem is that too much rice ends up on my hips, belly, calves, ankles, arms, face.......I think you get the picture. So I haven't been eating it. Last night my son asked for rice with dinner and since we were having BBQ butter steaks it only stands to reason that you make sticky rice. Right? Am I alone in this? Oh well. This morning there was once again that mass of left over rice. I didn't feel like my breakfast rice pudding and wanted something a little more substantial. Another thing, if you have left over rice, lay out your cling wrap of choice and place about one cup in the center, wrap it up. Then store in the freezer, to defrost just let it sit out. Voila, rice when you want it. To reheat, wait until it is thawed out, place in a glass container and cover with a damp paper towel. Heat at 30 second intervals.
Here is what I came up with: Rice and Egg breakfast patties. When making the patties, they will fall apart easily if you add too much beaten egg to them, go easy on the egg. Also, I made mine fairly thick, you can make them thiner but not too thin. These are delicate to make but are really worth it. I used Oat Flour for this recipe. If you are using a blend of Rice flours it might make it a bit more sticky. You could also use Buckwheat flour or Sorghum Flour but I would really stay away from the rice blends.
Egg and Rice patties:
1 cup sticky rice chilled
1 egg, beaten
1 green onion finely minced
1 strip of crispy bacon, chopped
1/4 c of Oat floor (Gluten Free)
Salt and Pepper to taste
butter or margarine for frying (I used Ghee)
1 cup Berries of your choice, I used Blueberries and raspberries
1/2 TSP sugar (or less depending on how sweet your berries are, you can also use Honey)
1TBSP water or juice (orange, apple but something not to acetic like pineapple)
2. Add about 1/2 of the minced onion to the mix and 1 TSP of Oat Flour, and all the chopped bacon
3. Gently form your patties
4. Dredge in the floor until completely coated
5. Make all patties
6. Heat your butter/margarine/ghee/oil in a pan until hot, this should be over med to med-low heat. You need it to heat all the way through without burning
6. Right before they go into the pan, dredge in the egg. This is where they can really fall apart so make sure to do it quickly.
7. Salt and pepper to taste
This is really easy to make. It basically is just cooking down some fruit. You can use fresh or frozen.
1. Throw all into a sauce pan
2. Heat on medium low until it begins to almost boil and then turn down to a low simmer
3. Cook for 15 minutes on simmer.
This can be stored in the refrigerator for at least 1 week.
Eat and enjoy!
It's the one you have.
