1large egg $0.23
1/2tspvanilla extract $0.15
Combine the leftover rice, egg, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl until it is evenly mixed.
Add 1/2 Tbsp cooking oil to a large, non-stick skillet (cast iron, ceramic, or teflon, your choice). Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, scoop some of the rice mixture onto the hot skillet. Use a spatula to press the mound of rice down until it is about 1/2 inch thick.
Cook the pancakes for a few minutes on each side, until they are firm, a little browned, and crispy on the outside. Do not try to flip the pancakes before the eggs have set, or they won't hold together. Make sure the entire pancake is on the spatula before attempting to flip.
After cooking the first three pancakes, add the second ½ Tbsp cooking oil to the skillet and cook the second batch in the same manner.
