    Today I made arancini for the first time. Turns out it's pretty easy to do, so now it's my favourite thing in the world. I'm going to arancini-ise everything.

    Give me ideas of what to put in them, thanks.

    I reckon your top 3 are, Norma, crab, ragu and buffalo balls. If you make ragu you can have it with spaghetti the next day.

    But your default has got to be cheese.

    The ones I made today were cheese.

    Double cheese, I guess. Parmesan in the rissotto mixture, and then buffalo mozarella as the filling.

    What the fuck is one of them? I’ve never heard of this. I could google. But I won’t.

    Deep fried rice balls.

    The rice bit is basically rissotto, then you make a ball of it, with something in the middle (like cheese), then coat it in breadcrumbs and deep fry it.

    Bit like a continental scotch egg. Very tasty.

    Mm I am going to have to find some of this stuff. Could spicy mincemeat work? Cheritzo and anchovies? Halloumi and diced tomato?

    I was thinking you could make these with israeli cous cous, too, and they'd be ace. It's tasty, sticky and easy to make compared to rissotto.

    Another thing to add to the experiment board :thumbs:

    Schmetterling I saw something nasty in the woodshed!

    I am on the Dutch breakfast so think that making an arancini stuffed with a smaller arancini is a great idea. ;)

    Also, because of this thread I dreamt about buying arancini from a stationary food van in Poland/Brighton. :D

    There's an Italian cafe near me that does amazing nduja (spicy sausage) arancini, and also serves chinotto. I really want to go now!

    mrsfran What were those amazing arancini we had in that café that's closed down? Pistacchio and something.

    Italian myrtle orange fizzy drink. Kind of non alcoholic Campari. It's bitterer than most fizzy pop, I think it's absolutely delicious.

    I Googled and saw a drink but assumed you meant another food! Anyway, cheers :)
    Not a bad shout, actually. A bit of pork, some cheese, you've already got the breaded coating. Only thing missing is bechemel, and some recipes for arancini use bechemel in the rice mixture :cool:

    There is a Sicilian recipe with pistachios and cheese - not mozzarella but a mixture of parmesan and caciocavallo, which is similar to provolone. Sounds lovely.

    I guess you've considered mushrooms, OP....? Also, it could be nice to make them from risottos that aren't plain, eg a saffron risotto or something that's not too lumpy.

    Yep, I originally planned to make mushroom ones for my first attempt, but my mushrooms were all manky when I got them out of the fridge and didin't have time to go to the shop, so just did mozerella. Mushrooms definitely going to be attempted at some point :)
