  • Great question,
    These are my absolute fav!
    I hope I cook them as well as the restaurants do!

  • I cook the rice as per the packet, and make bolognaise sauce in another pan with peas. I chop up ham and eggs, alongside mozzarella, then shape rice into a ball, press your finger into it and add a little of the remaining ingredients and coat in egg and breadcrumbs. Place in the fridge for a little while so it helps the arancini not to come undone as they can get messy when cooking. You can either fry or bake them if you want them a little lighter until golden brown.

  • I have always wondered this too.. and most recipes seem that complicated (I’m not a cook!). Thanks all I can’t wait to try some of these too

  • Great question and some great answers! I had been mulling over making a risotto for dinner tonight (a delicious Baked Salmon and Spinach Risotto – it’s super creamy and cheesy). My daughter will eat the leftovers but if I make the leftovers into arancini I have no doubt that she’ll gobble them up!

  • Yum!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I am going to give these a go. Thank you all for your recipes. I think the crispy ones will be a great hit with the kids for after school snacking.

    A delicious recipe… There are probably more easier ones out there.

  • I have been watching this question for days and wondering what the hell are aranacini balls, have now discovered I live under a rock, a little bit of time reading the answers, a bit on google and I am going to try them, will get back to here and update my success or failure, thankyou for expanding my horizons, this is wonderful as we tend to stick with what we know and what we have grown up with. and I married young so I tend to cook what mum did and what kids like so boring and bland foods, thankyou for sharing.

  • next time i have rosotto, i’ll have to make some

  • i hadn’t heard of this before. i think that i will give it a try and make some kind of creation with it. it does sound yummy though

  • Leftover risotto works best. If wanting a dairy free version, using nutritional yeast makes very tasty Arancini without the cheese.

  • I also use left-over risotto. I roll it into balls around a small cube of cheese. Then I dip them in beated egg and roll in breadcrumbs. You can then fry in olive oil, or bake in the oven with a spray of olive oil. Sometimes cooked peas is also put in the middle with the cheese, and you only need to use a little bit in each ball.

  • Great question. Love aranacini balls. Hope someone have a really easy and tasty one to share.

  • i find a cheesey risotto made the day before works best. i stir a beaten egg through the cold risotto, roll into balls,then dip in beaten eggs, and roll in bread crumbs. for a twist using panko crumbs makes a delicious crispy ball. or season breadcrumbs with herbs and parmasen.

  • Following this question as I have yet to find one I like

  • Oh this question has made my hungry. Then the answer made me more hungry! I know I’ll need to eat ABs now to satisfy my spontaneous hunger craving.
