Yield: serves 4

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked short-grain brown rice
  • 12 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 12 tbsp. chopped fresh oregano
  • 12 tsp. kosher salt
  • 14 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 12 cup flour
  • 14 cup olive oil
  • 3 tbsp. butter, plus more for garnish
  • Finely chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves

Instructions

  1. Combine rice, Parmigiano-Reggiano, oregano, salt, pepper, and egg. Form rice mixture into eight 2″ round cakes. Transfer cakes to a sheet tray and refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow them to firm up.
  2. Put flour on a plate; dredge cakes in flour. Heat oil and 3 tbsp. of the butter in a 10″ skillet over medium-high heat. Working in 2 batches, fry cakes, turning once, until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side.
  3. Garnish each cake with a thin slice of softened butter and sprinkle with finely chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves.
