Almost Parmesan Chicken

This is a recipe for food storage. I am not a believer that all my food storage recipes have to be without refrigerated things. We may find ourselves in many circumstances. It is about having the knowledge about food to provide for your family with simple ingredients.
This would be one I would definitely use if meat were hard to get. This tastes similar to a Parmesan chicken, but it is vegetarian. When putting the rice balls together, I just keep them in my hand, as shown in the picture. They do not stick together. Set them gently in the pan.

2 eggs
2 cups cooked rice
1 cup cheese
¾ cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 T. olive oil
Beat eggs lightly with fork. Add the rice and stir gently but thoroughly. Take 1 T. of the mixture, place a T. of cheese in the middle and then top with another tablespoon of rice. Shape into a ball and roll in the breadcrumbs. Place on grease baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the rice mixture. Refrigerate pan of rice balls for at least 30 minutes. Drizzle 2 T. olive oil over rice balls. Bake at 425°F for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with warm marinara sauce.
