Lip-Smacking Rice Poppers for Snacking or Breakfast

Janet Groene’s
Rice Puppies
    This is what I call a “recreational dessert” because everyone can pitch in-- providing, of course, all precautions are taken when working with hot oil. Make these crunchy, flavorful poppers over the campfire, indoors on the RV range or outdoors in an electric skillet, a pot over your induction hot plate or in a deep fryer.
    When the cooking aromas steal out over the campsite, the gang gathers round and all the compliments are yours. The recipe is easily doubled to keep the production line going until everyone has had their fill for breakfast, dessert or snacks.  The recipe is an ideal use for leftover rice. If you make it from scratch, spread hot rice out on a strip of foil and stir with a fork to quick-cool it and keep it from clumping.

3 eggs
½ cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 ½ teaspoons apple pie spice or plain cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 cups cooked white or brown  rice
Flour (can be non-wheat flour)
Oil for frying
Powdered sugar
    In a bowl beat the eggs with sugar, salt, spice, vanilla and baking powder. Stir in rice and enough flour to make a thick dough. Heat a couple of inches of vegetable oil to 375 degrees and use two spoons to drop in rice puppies. When they are brown on all sides, remove to basket lined with paper toweling.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Repeat, keeping oil at 350-375 degrees.
