Rice-and-Meat Patties

Sometimes not enough meat remains after a meal to make a tasty dish by itself. In such a case, it should be combined with some other food, especially a starchy one, so as to extend its flavor and produce a dish that approaches nearer a balanced ration than meat alone does. A small amount of any kind of meat combined with rice and the mixture then formed into patties, or croquettes, provides both an appetizing and a nutritious dish.

Sufficient to serve six.


  • 1 cup finely chopped left-over meat
  • 1 cup cold steamed rice
  • 1/2 cup thick white sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 egg
  • fine crumbs


Mix the meat and rice, stir into them the white sauce, onion, and celery salt, and salt and pepper to taste. Shape into croquettes, or patties; roll first in the egg and then in the crumbs. Fry in deep fat until golden brown and serve with any desirable sauce.
