Ever tried arancini before? These little rice balls are made with risotto bianco, filled with mozzarella cheese and then fried in vegetables oil. Some make them with leftover risotto but some (us as well) make risotto bianco only to prepare these little treats. You can prepare basic risotto bianco or add some herbs and spices to make it more special. Plus you can always switch the mozzarella cheese with any other cheese, ham, prosciutto, mushrooms or other filling you like. These are great served with light salad or as a starter. They are easy to make + the combination of creamy risotto bianco, melting cheese and crispy breadcrumb coating is just incredible - so good. We definitely recommend making this Italian treat - it's beyond delicious.

Repeat with the remaining risotto mixture. Dip each arancini ball in flour, then egg and finally breadcrumbs mixture. Make sure the ball is completely coated.
