How to Make Easy Ham and Rice Patties in Your Air Fryer

These little ham and rice patties are a great way to use up leftover ham and rice, and they are simple to make. The patties are filled with savory ham and vegetables and sweet apples. With the rice in the patties you have a one-dish meal, and using the air fryer to cook the patties means you can have dinner quickly without heating up your main oven or making a mess on the stove. I make the patties in small, non-stick pie dishes and, after cooling them slightly, remove the patties to serve them. Ramekins also work well to make the patties, or just shape them and put them on a piece of baking parchment. The little patties really are quite tasty, and they are a great way to use up leftover ham and rice in a different way. Enjoy!

Air Fryer Ham and Rice Patties -- Makes 4


1 small onion, chopped

1-2 ribs of celery, chopped

1 medium apple, cored and chopped

1 1/2 - 2 cups of chopped ham

1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon of pepper

1/2 teaspoon of dried parsley

1 1/2 cups of cooked rice (preferably brown)

1/2 cup of milk

1/2 cup of light sour cream

2-3 tablespoons of raisins

1/2 cup of Italian-style shredded cheese


In a large bowl combine the onion, celery, and apple with a tablespoon of water. Microwave the mixture for 2-3 minutes until the vegetables soften a little. Stir in the remaining ingredients, mixing everything well. Spritz four five-inch non-stick pie tins with non-stick cooking spray (or use large ramekins) and divide the mixture between the four tins. You'll need to mound the mixture in each tin. Spritz the tops of the mounds with non-stick cooking spray. Place the tins (however many will fit at one time) in your air fryer basket, put the basket in the air fryer, and air fry the patties at 320 degrees for about 20 minutes or until cooked through and very brown on top. Remove the patties from the air fryer basket and repeat the cooking process with the remaining uncooked mixture. Let the patties cool in their pans for five or 10 minutes before removing them (loosen the edges with a plastic knife, then slide the knife under the underside of the patty to lift it out) to serve. Alternatively, you can serve the patties in the pie tins/ramekins.
