In a medium bowl, toss the rice with salt, black pepper, Paula Deen House seasoning, parmesan spring onions and the zest and juice of 1 lemon. Beat eggs, then add to mixture and stir to combine.
Shape the rice mixture into patties and coat with bread crumbs.
Heat the oil in a 10-inch cast iron skillet. Oil should be hot, but not smoking. Fry the croquettes over medium-high heat until nice and golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm.
