Jan's Brown Rice and Quinoa Cheesy Rice Balls

Jan's Brown Rice and Quinoa Cheesy Rice Balls
  • 1 (6 ounce) box UNCLE BEN'S® Brown Rice & Quinoa Roasted Red Pepper
  • 3 large eggs, divided
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup bread crumbs, or more if needed
  • salt to taste
  • 4 cups vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 cup prepared marinara sauce


  1. Cook rice according to package directions. Allow to cool until comfortable to handle.
  2. Stir in one egg, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and black pepper. Mix until well blended.
  3. Place flour in a small bowl. Beat 2 eggs in a second bowl. Place bread crumbs in a third bowl.
  4. Divide rice mixture into 24 equal portions about the size of a golf ball. Roll each portion into a ball. Roll rice ball in flour. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. (Mix will be sticky.)
  5. Dip each rice ball into the egg wash. Dredge in bread crumbs, and place rice balls back on baking sheet. Refrigerate 15 minutes.
  6. Give each rice ball another quick roll in your hands to tighten up and smooth out the surface.
  7. Heat oil to 375 degrees F in a large sauce pan.
  8. Cook rice balls in the hot oil in batches, about 4 per batch. Gently stir with spoon. Cook until rice balls are golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  9. Drain on paper-towel-lined plate or baking sheet. Salt lightly.
  10. Serve hot with heated marinara sauce.
