Fried Italian Rice Balls Recipe
The first time I tried Arancini, or Italian rice balls, was at a friends house for dinner one night. I immediately wanted to know how to make them so I started scrolling through Pinterest to find something similar. I came across a recipe Rocco DiSpirito used to make “unfried Rice Balls” or Arancini.
His version might be a little healthier, but my version tasted so good, I think it was worth the few extra calories! I present you with Fried Italian Rice Balls Recipe!
I wanted a recipe that would have my guests screaming for more! I like to think that I was able to achieve this because after the family “taste tested” them, they were nearly gone. I also needed a recipe that wouldn’t leave me in the kitchen all-day.
How to make Fried Italian Rice Balls Recipe
The holiday frenzy often leaves everyone rushing home with little time to put together a meal, not to mention a Holiday party, that will please everyone. Minute® Rice is quick and easy to prepare and is a great pantry staple.
I like using Minute® White Rice because you can have great-tasting, fluffy white rice in just 5 minutes. It’s easy to prepare and is the foundation to any wholesome meal.
You start by mixing the Minute® White Rice, egg, parmesan and italian seasoning together in a bowl by hand.
Form each Rice Ball by taking a small portion of the mixture, squeezing it firmly and stuffing one cube of mozzarella inside each ball.
Fry until Golden Brown.
Hope you enjoy this Fried Italian Rice Balls Recipe!
