Dirty turkey rice cakes

Ok, lousy blurry picture. I just wanted to pick my fork back up and chow down.
Every now and then you go to the kitchen and do something that justs blows you away. In this case it was a collaborative effort. Peter and I wanted to do something fun with the considerable quantity of leftover dirty rice. Rice cakes was the solution. However, sometimes things like that are apt to fall apart in a saute pan when you try to turn them over. So … we got creative.

To the rice we added: 2 eggs, chopped turkey, parsley, parmesan cheese, ricotta cheese (maybe more stuff I don’t remember).

Decided to bake the cakes. Put a piece of foil on a small cutting board, sprayed it with Pam so we could just slide them onto a baking sheet.

Set the oven to 350 and put the baking pan in to heat up while the oven did same.

Baked the cakes for 25 minutes without turning them. Wonder of wonders, they were marvelous.

The side dish of sautéed baby bok choy is something I wrote about a few days ago. The most basic recipe imaginable: 1 tbsp oil, 1 tbsp butter, 2 tbsp Chinese rice wine (Shiaxing). Toss the bok choy in the butter and oil for about 2 minutes. Add the wine. Keep tossing for another minute or two. Done!
