  • Summary

    A classic Italian dish, I've made these bite size to be finger food but they are typically made larger to serve as a meal or appetiser! This makes 25 mini Arancini balls about the size of a golf ball. :) Great for making ahead - they keep in the fridge for 3 days, then just reheat at 350F/180C for 10 minutes!

    Ingredients

    • 2 tbsp butter
    • 2 garlic cloves (, minced)
    • 1 small onion (, finely diced (white, yellow, brown))
    • 1 1/2 cups risotto rice ((arborio))
    • 1/2 cup white wine ((or substitute with broth/stock or water))
    • 3 1/2 cups chicken broth/stock
    • 1 cup milk
    • 1 egg
    • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
    • 3/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese
    • 2 1/2 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley (, or 1 1/2 tbsp dried parsley (Note 1))
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • Pepper
    • 1/2 cup plain flour
    • Black pepper
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
    • Cooking oil ((I used vegetable oil))
