Arancini (Rice Balls) with Marinara Sauce 


2 cups cooked white rice, cooled 

½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

3 eggs, separated

8 small cubes fresh mozzarella

1 cup Italian-style breadcrumbs

Oil, for frying

1 cup store-bought or homemade marinara sauce


Place a large heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat and add enough vegetable oil to rise 4 
inches in the pot.

Combine the rice, Parmesan and 1 egg in a medium bowl and use your hands to thoroughly 
combine the mixture.

Form each arancini by taking a small portion of the mixture, squeezing it firmly and stuffing one 
cube of mozzarella inside each ball.

Repeat this process to form 8 arancini.

Whisk together the remaining 2 eggs.

Dip each arancini in the eggs and then in the breadcrumbs, shaking off any excess.

Once the oil reaches 375ºF, add 2 or 3 of the breaded arancini to the pot and fry them until 
golden brown and cooked throughout.

Use a slotted spoon to remove the fried arancini from the pot and transfer them to a paper 
towel-lined plate. Immediately salt the arancini.

Repeat the frying process with the remaining arancini.

Serve the arancini warm with a side of warm marinara sauce.
