  • Blend water, tomatoes and bouillon in blender until smooth. Pour into large skillet; bring to boil. Add vegetables; cook 5 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Keep warm.
  • Whisk eggs in large bowl. Add rice, ham and cheese; mix well. Use 1/4-cup scoop to portion rice mixture for each cake into separate skillet sprayed with cooking spray; flatten each with back of spatula to form 3-inch round. Cook (in batches) on medium-high heat 2 to 3 min. on each side or until firm and golden brown on both sides.
  • Serve rice cakes topped with sauce.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was soo good! This was soo good!! I made th rice patties without ham. I'm sure ham gives them some great flavor but I didn't have any and really like making it vegetarian. I did make sure to add just a little seasoning to the rice mix and I only used corn in the tomatoe sauce as I had a couple of picky eaters. Next time I think I'll try adding grilled zuccini to it. I think I'll try this with brown rice to. I may have to make this once a month or more. : )

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very bland sauce and 3 eggs won't hold 1 1/2 cups rice in a patty. Very bland sauce and 3 eggs won't hold 1 1/2 cups rice in a patty. Don't bother with this one.
