Sometimes you just need something breaded and crispy for dinner, but what if you are (gasp) out of bread crumbs? If you happen to have a few rice cakes on hand, the day is saved. Photo by Arria Belli.
To make a crispy, crunchy, breading mixture out of rice cakes, simply grab a few, pound 'em up into crumbs and mix in some seasoning. Once they're prepped, treat them like you would any other crumb mixture. As your food cooks, the already crunchy rice will brown, making for a super crisp coating.
