Arancini: Sicilian Stuffed Rice Balls with Leftover Risotto | The Night Time Cook

Classic arancini are Sicilian rice balls made from leftover risotto stuffed with ragu, prosciutto, cheese, and peas. These little rice balls are dipped in batter, rolled in breadcrumbs, and deep-fried. The crunchy exterior gives way to creamy, soft risotto, stuffed with meaty, salty, gooey deliciousness. Serve arancini as is or with a dipping sauce. These Sicilian stuffed riced balls make a great appetizer or side. Serve it with a vinegary salad or a tangy soup, like roasted tomato soup with basil, bacon, and blue cheese.

Who Invented Arancini Rice Balls?


Enjoy risotto in spring!
