Food porn.... with history


Growing up, money was not exactly plentiful.  As a result, Mom didn't waste a lot of food, and the larder was occasionally a bit... limited.

Some things, one just seems to absorb through the skin.

What we have here, are rice cakes.  Made from leftover white rice and shredded cheddar, with an egg, a splash of evaporated mil, a few tablespoons of flour, powdered garlic, salt, and fresh ground pepper. Made into a thick 'batter', and spooned into a hot non-stick skillet.

Cook till brown and crispy, then flip.  Try to leave them alone till thoroughly done.

Here, each rice cake is holding up a sunny side, and there's a bit of Chipotle Corn salsa for topping.

From plain leftover rice to a pretty darned good breakfast.

That sounds like something to do as a reason to make some rice. :)
