We can’t get enough of these fritters! Very similar taste than classic Broccoli and Rice casserole only more fun to eat and even better, they are made with leftovers!
Kids love anything crispy and cheesy, so these fritters are not the exception. My daughter requested them two days in a row. I don’t think I would’ve had the same luck with Broccoli and Rice casserole.
What you need to make Broccoli and Rice Fritters
Onion powder, salt, and pepper.
Helpful tips ands tricks
Cold rice works better for this recipe. I like to cook extra rice and use my leftovers the next day to make this recipe. If you use frozen broccoli, make sure it’s thawed and pat it with a paper towel to get rid of any water.
You can also fry these fritters in a large skillet with just enough oil to cover the bottom. They will cook a lot faster than in the air fryer. As soon as they start turning brown around the edges (3-5 minutes) flip them over and cook for another couple of minutes.
We love these as a side dish, but they would also be great as an appetize. Serve with sour cream or Greek yogurt.
