Why they work!
They’re crunchy – The breaded outer layer becomes a crisp, crunchy deep-fried delight.
They’re creamy – Inside, the risotto is a creamy, soft texture that’s a splendid counter to the crunchy outer layer.
They’re cheesy – The surprise is the stringy, gooey cheese stuffed inside. Usually mozzarella (sometimes smoked), I’ll use cubes of taleggio, fontina, provolone and even gorgonzola from time to time.
They're easy - Once you have your risotto, they're easy to make at home. They're also a great Kids activity to shape and stuff. Just be sure to not let your child deep fry anything!
