Creole Red Beans and Rice Fritters
1 cup cooked red beans
1 cup cooked rice
¼ cup finely chopped ham
2 green onions
4 tablespoons panko bread crumbs
3 large eggs
½ teaspoon Cajun or Creole seasoning
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup panko bread crumbs
vegetable oil for deep frying
⅛ teaspoon salt
Mix red beans, rice, ham, green onions, 4 tablespoons panko bread crumbs, 2 eggs, 1/4 teaspoon Cajun seasoning, and black pepper together in a bowl to form a tight mixture.
Form mixture into small, hush puppy-sized balls, pressing firmly together to hold their shape. Chill for 1 hour to overnight.
Whisk milk and remaining egg together in a small bowl to make an egg wash. Mix remaining bread crumbs and remaining Cajun seasoning together in a shallow dish. Roll chilled balls first in flour, coat with egg wash, and roll in bread crumb mixture.
Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 360 to 375 degrees F (182 to 190 degrees C).
Fry fritters in the hot oil until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with salt.
