Ingredients

  • 3 cups leftover cold cooked risotto
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 ounces sliced prosciutto, chopped
  • 2 ounces aged provolone, cut into 16 cubes
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup fine, dry breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg

Preparation

  1. 1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl; mix well. Press 2 tablespoons rice mixture around 1 cube of cheese to form a small ball. Repeat with remaining risotto and cheese.

Dredge rice balls in flour, dip in egg mixture, and roll in breadcrumbs to coat. Place on a tray, cover loosely with plastic wrap, and chill at least 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.
  3. 3. Pour oil to a depth of 3 inches in a deep saucepan; heat to 350°. Fry rice balls, in batches, 4 to 5 minutes or until golden. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Serve warm.
