009-small1I finally made risotto the right way last week! Woo!  Hint – Boiling the chicken stock REALLY makes the difference!  One thing is that I made enough risotto to feed my entire extended family, not just me and Mike lol.  So , I had leftover risotto – Oh the horror!  I printed out a recipe from a blog called – Mary Ellen’s Cooking Creations months ago – and I was so excited to turn my leftovers into cakes!  This recipe was sooo delicious!

  • Cold, leftover risotto
  • 1/2 c flour
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 3/4 c bread crumbs
  • 3/4 c oil for frying


  • Heat oil in a pot/pan
  • With wet hands – roll risotto into balls , then flatten into cakes
  • Roll the cake in flour, dip in egg, then coat with bread crumbs.
  • Drop into the oil and cook about 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
  • Transfer to paper towels to drain, then serve immediately.
