Recipe for Arancini
Assemble your ingredients:
Bowl of cold leftover risotto (mine was cooked using Vialone Nano rice, white wine, blue cheese and mushroom duxelles the night before).
Bowl of 2 beaten eggs
Bowl of bread crumbs/Panko
Bowl of cheese cubes (I used a mixture of blue cheese and cheddar. Mozzarella is also good)
Take a small patty of rice 2 or 3 cms across
Poke a small cube of cheese into it.
Cover the cheese with the rice, moulding a small ball
Dip the ball in egg
Dip in bread crumbs
Fry the balls in vegetable oil.
Enjoy the hot cheesy goodness within.
I served them with chipotle tabasco and green chili sauce.
"hot cheesy goodness" = Amazing. I want some!
Also a great stand-by canape. Had just set off for a dinner party last year, and suddenly remembered they'd asked for canapes at the last minute. Doubled back, ransacked the fridge, found leftover risotto. Just made them when I got there. So popular. It's the deep-frying thing I'm sure.
yes also great starter….Deep frying mmmm
Yum they look amazing. What a great idea! Will definitely try these next time I have left overs.

This is very cool. I want to make risotto just so I can have some left over to make these little cheesy balls. Love your blog! I'm also a Marmite lover 🙂
