Description

Pan Fried Mozzarella Cheese Stuffed Rice Balls are crunchy on the outside, creamy on the inside, and stuffed with lots of melted cheese! Whats not to love?

Ingredients

  • 1 cup arborio rice
  • 2 cups chicken or turkey stock (beef or vegetable will work as well)
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus additional for seasoning after frying (if desired)
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 3 mozzarella string cheese, cut into 1 pieces
  • 1½ cups panko bread crumbs
  • 1 cup canola oil or other light colored oil
  • Parmesan cheese for garnish (optional)
  • fresh basil leaves for garnish (optional)
  • water to keep rice balls from being too sticky

Directions

  • Use a strainer to rinse the rice under running water several times before cooking.
  • Place the stock in a medium sauce pan along with the salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer.
  • Add the rinsed rice and stir well. Cover and simmer an additional 20-25 minutes or until all the liquid has cooked away.
  • Spread the cooked rice on a baking sheet and allow to cool completely. Place the cooled rice in a covered container and refrigerate until ready to make the rice balls.
  • Heat the oil in a medium, high sided skillet until the oil shimmers and tiny bubbles form on the handle of a wooden spoon when placed in the oil.
  • Place the panko crumbs in a medium bowl.
  • Keep hands wet with water as you take approximately 1½ tablespoons of cooled rice in the palm of hand and flatten it.
  • Add a cheese cube to the center of the rice and then form the rice over the cheese to form a ball.
  • Add the rice balls to the panko crumbs and roll and press until the ball is covered in the crumbs.
  • Carefully add the panko coated balls to the hot oil and pan fry on all sides until golden (approximately 2-3 minutes).
  • Remove the fried rice balls to paper towels to drain and immediately sprinkle with additional salt, if desired.
  • Serve warm with Parmesan cheese, chopped fresh basil (optional) and marinara sauce for dipping.
