1

Measure the rice accurately using the measuring cup that came with your rice cooker. Rinse quickly once, drain and place in the inner cooking pan. Add water and salt to the inner cooking pan and stir well with rice using the rice spatula. Cook the rice using the “Brown Rice” setting.
2

While the rice cooks, prepare the other ingredients. In a large bowl, combine black beans, bacon, salsa, green onion, thyme and salt. 
3

When rice completes cooking, gently fluff the rice with rice spatula, and spread onto a large plate.
4

When the rice is cool to the touch, add the cooled rice to the salsa mixture and knead well until all ingredients are combined.
5

Moisten hands with water and make rice cakes - about 3 inches wide, 1/2 inch thick - and place on a large plate. Rice cakes may be made up to 2 days in advance and stored in a refrigerator.
6

Heat skillet on medium high and add oil. When the oil is very hot, gently place rice cakes in the heated skillet and reduce heat to medium. Fry cakes until both sides are crisp and hot in the center. Serve immediately.

Optional:
Hold cakes warm while preparing the eggs. Place one cooked egg on top of each cake, drizzle ketchup or chili sauce over egg and sprinkle chopped cilantro.
