arancini are little fried balls of rice. i’m not sure if they’re ALWAYS made with risotto, but i can’t think of a yummier way! so with your amazing, delicious, scrumptious leftover cheese risotto, make arancini!
for every cup or cup and a half of leftovers, i would use 1 egg. mix the egg with the risotto.
mix some breadcrumbs and parmesan. i only had panko so i magic bulleted the panko to make it finer. season and put in a flat dish.
its gross, but make about golf ball size balls of the risotto-egg mixture. if you have the patience, put a little cube of cheese in the middle by forming the ball around the cheese. or be lazy like me and just add more fontina and gruyere into the mix 🙂
roll the ball in the breadcrumbs and press it in so there’s a nice coat.
if they seem too gooey and unstable, refrigerate for a while until they’re chilled.
deep fry in canola or vegetable oil until golden brown.
serve with marinara 🙂
1. Thanks for dinner (again)!
2. Next time put up a Pringlesque warning: “Once you pop, you can’t stop.” I followed the recipe to the word. Delicious!
3. What do you have for me that involves mustard greens?
