Any kind of risotto will work when preparing these tasty fried risotto balls stuffed with goat cheese. Use a prepackaged mix, or leftovers. As an appetizer or entree, Goat Cheese Risotto Balls are a favorite.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 (5.5 ounce) package dry risotto mix
- 4 ounces goat cheese
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
Prepare risotto according to package directions. Chill in the refrigerator at least 1 hour, until cooled.
Roll risotto into 2 inch mounds. Place a marble-sized chunk of goat cheese on each mound. Press cheese chunks into mounds, then roll mounds around cheese, creating balls.
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat the oil and cook the risotto balls, turning occasionally, until evenly golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.
