Cheddar Rice patties Easy to make and Oh so yummy!
My daughter loved to eat these patties and got quite adept at cooking them herself while she was in college. MIx up the ingredients and let the individual fry their own patties for those on separate schedules. Great topped with sour cream (vegan or regular and fresh chives.
