This is great simple recipe I found online. It is great for clearing out your fridge. I saute any misc veggies I have laying around such as mushrooms and spinach and add them to the mix. These can also be put into casings and refrigerated. The colder the rice the easier it will be coat in bread crumbs. I can't say how long because they never lasted longer than a day or so. The patties can be stuffed in pita bread or eaten like a sandwich.
