Jen and my mom made rice balls early this morning and I wanted to share their version. It was slightly different and very simple.
Cooked and cooled rice. Italian Rice, not the "Uncle Ben's kind"
salt & pepper to taste
mozzarella for the center
Mix well the rice, eggs, mashed potatoes (using a potato ricer), cheese salt and pepper. Roll into a ball. Insert a piece of mozzarella. Close and roll tightly. Then roll in bread crumbs and fry. They were amazing!
In case some of you are like me, and didn't know what a potato ricer was...heres the image!
