- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 cup rice
- 4 slices turkey bacon
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
- Salt and pepper
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
- Sour cream (people’s portions only)
- Salsa (people’s portions only)
In a medium saucepan, bring the chicken broth to a boil over high heat. Add the rice, lower the heat and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and let cool.
While the rice is cooking, in a medium nonstick skillet, cook the bacon over medium-high heat until crisp, about 5 minutes; drain on paper towels. Finely chop the bacon and add to the cooled rice. Reserve the skillet.
Mix the eggs and bread crumbs into the rice mixture; season with salt and pepper. Shape into 4 equal-size patties.
In the reserved skillet, heat the EVOO, two turns of the pan, over medium heat. Add the rice cakes and cook for 4 minutes on each side. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving to your pup. Top the people’s portions with sour cream and salsa.
