When Life Hands You Risotto, Make Risotto Cakes

March 31, 2010 § 3 Comments

I found myself with a few extra servings of risotto after Monday’s dinner, so I thought I’d try to make risotto cakes.  They were tasty!  Risotto two ways in two days.  You might want to try it.

I took the leftover risotto and mixed it with some parm and basil.  I have a feeling even if you leave these extra ingredients out the cakes will be tasty.

I used about 1/3 C of the risotto mixture to form cakes, then I let them sit in the fridge for about an hour.  After they had chilled, I dusted the cakes with flour and fried those babies in butter.

The result – yum, I think.  Similar to potato croquettes.  Nice crispy fried rice outside, dense cheesy interior. I’m trying to think of a joke about dense, cheesy interiors…
