much easier to make using truly leftover risotto... the mixture is very wet and hard to form into balls. I added a smidge of flour to the rice/egg mixture to make it bind better. They are fine without the mozzarella center, use slices of mozzarella sticks to make that easy. It is easier to form the balls by using a cookie dough scooper... smash rice against side of ball, slip the mozzarella in, press into side again to tighten it up. Also, after rolling in bread crumbs, let the balls rest on waxed paper for 10-15 minutes while you heat the oil. Took me about 1 1/2 hrs.
