Thanks for sharing jane dough! I was looking for an alternative way to use leftover wildrice. This hit the spot! Great flavor combination.

These earned 5+ stars in my household! My fiance, our roomie and I all devoured these griddle cakes. We love potato pancakes, and these are a super-flavorful, lower-carb option that we like even better! They've earned a place in my regular rotation. :) The only thing I did different was to let the cakes drain on paper towels before serving. Thanks for sharing! EDITED TO ADD: I forgot to mention that I *also* lowered the salt by half, since I need to watch my salt intake, and these were still excellent.
