Crispy risotto balls
Here's a perfect way to turn leftovers into deliciousness.
I don't know about you, but I often have a little bit of leftover risotto. We usually throw it out - but since I discovered this little gem, I will never do that again. In fact, I'll make a point of making too much risotto next time!
What you do is simply mix the leftover risotto with an egg (I didn't have a large amount of risotto, so I used about half an egg, mostly yolk), shape small balls, then roll them in panko. (Panko is ultra-crispy bread crumbs, and you can find it in Asian groceries.) Fry in lots of oil - I used peanut, which is great for frying.
So, that's it. Super easy, super fast and a great little appetizer.
