    This recipe is a great way to use leftover risotto rice. Goat's cheese is used to stuff risotto balls, then pan-fried to perfection. Serve as a side dish or nibble.

    different,but pleasant. Bit difficult to fry them evenly,but tasty. Need bit more goats cheese for me.  -  16 Apr 2012


    it's really good even thought i've made some minor changes in the original recipe, like cooking the arborio in saffron chiken stock and seassoning the goat with a sprinkle of dill and some oyster sauce  -  06 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    After rolling ingredients freeze for about 15 minutes. Dip in milk and egg mixture roll in Panko Bread crumbs and allow them to sit on a rack with something under the rack to catch the crumbs falling away for about 5 minutes. This will help to cut down on the moisture so the bread crumbs will not break away while frying.  -  23 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
