My Super Crazy Meatball filled Arancini

I didn't quite have the patience and time to do a turducken but did manage to turn some leftovers into an equally crazy dish. If you have tried my cheese filled meatballs or arancini, then it is a matter combining the two into one.

A perfect picnic offering when the warmer weather returns. Watch you friends bite into these ordinary looking arancini and see the smile on their faces.... of course keep them away from vegetarians!

P.S My freezer is filled with goodies and I am looking forward to do a lot of cooking over the weekend, otak-otak, tamarind prawns and Johor laksa are a few of the dishes I have in mind.

recipe from the tummies' kitchen
makes 6
you'll need

~1 cups seasoned mince
mozzarella cheese or tasty cheese, cut into 1 cm cubes
1.5 cups of leftover risotto 
1 egg, lightly beaten
a little oil for frying

Divide seasoned mince into 6 equal serves and form each into meatball, fill with cubed cheese of your choice and set aside.

Brown meatballs with a little oil until they are golden all over, transfer the pan into the hot oven for 8 minutes. Remove and allow to cool.

Meanwhile moisten the leftover risotto with half of the beaten egg and divide into 6 equal serves. Roll each portion into a ball, flatten it slightly and wrap over the cheese filled meatballs.

Roll the meatball filled arancini tightly before coating them with breadcrumbs.

Fry until golden and crisp, remove and drain on absorbent paper.

Serve with some of my spiced tomato relish.

I hope you might give this totally crazy but wicked snack a try!
