Crispy Rice Cakes with Cheese

A quick little thing that`s easy to throw together if you should find yourself with some leftover cooked rice in the fridge. You can use any firm cheese you prefer, but I think it`s nice to use one with a bit of flavour. In my version I`ve used comté. I`ve topped my rice cakes with herb mayo, mushrooms and toasted pine nuts, but again, use what you have/prefer. They are nice by themselves, but some kind of sauce or dip really elevates them!


  • ½ x yellow onion
  • 1 tbsp fresh herbs
  • 5 dl cooked rice
  • 50 g grated cheese
  • 2 x eggs
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 3 tbsp neutral oil


  1. Finely slice the onion and fresh herbs. I used dill, but most soft herbs will work well.
  2. Mix together rice, grated cheese, eggs, 1 tsp olive oil, onion, chopped herbs and a little salt and pepper in a bowl.
  3. Heat up neutral oil in a non stick pan. Use a spoon to scoop the mixture into the pan, forming round "cakes". Cook until crispy and golden on both sides.
  4. Sprinkle the rice cakes with a little salt while they`re still hot from the pan. Serve with the topping of your choice!
