Video: Leftover fried rice can be pretty tasty on its own, but if you want to turn it into a totally different kind of snack, try waffling it.
A waffle iron is useful for concocting all kinds of creative snacks, and these leftover rice waffles are a delicious example. This suggestion comes via the Kitchn, where they explain:
The results are extra crispy and crunchy on the outside, but warm and chewy on the inside. If you don’t happen to have leftover rice on hand, you can of course cook up a fresh pot to waffle, but the rice “waffles” tend to stay together better and are easier to remove from the iron when you are working with day-old rice, as it has dried out a bit and is cold.
You can try this with leftover fried rice, as shown in the video, but regular rice works, too. And if you don’t have a waffle maker, you could always try these leftover rice cakes, which are simple enough to make.
