I've never had an arancini before so have nothing to compare it to.. but wanted to give this a shot since it looked so yummy. I'm so glad i went ahead and made it!! These were so yummy that my family devoured them!! The only change i did was to substitute cheddar cheese for the mozzarella since my family prefers cheddar for its creaminess rather than mozzarella for its stringiness.
These lil things will be made often!!! Thank you so much for the recipe!!
These are fantastic! In the end the arancini was absolutely delicious, however, I did have some problems with the recipe. The directions for adding the water/tomato sauce mixture were very confusing... I suggest re-writing it somehow to explain the directions better. Also, the recipe only called for 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup tomato sauce to cook the risotto rice. This was definitely not enough. I am a pretty good cook but was getting very frustrated with the recipe because I had never made risotto before and the amount of liquid needed to be tripled for it to come out right. Those are my only negatives about this recipe.... They turned out wonderfully in the end! Absolutely delicious!!! I have had arancini at restaurants before and the ones I made were perfect! I even used chopped up string cheese as the mozzerella and it worked out great! :)people found this review Helpful. You can only vote others' reviews helpful or not helpful...

Very good! I had problems not with the recipe which is excellent and has very clear directions. When I went to the grocery store to buy arborio rice the only short grain rice they had was sushi so bought that. That worked okay. But after I started making the rissoto I discovered that I did not have ANY tomato sauce so thought a smaller amount of tomato paste would work, but it really made the color dark-hence the dark arancini. Paste also tastes way different. Instead what I should have done was used diced tomato which I have lots of and would look and taste better. I used lots of hot chicken broth for cooking the rice, added basil, salt, and Italian seasoning. The other mistake I made was I cut the cubes into 1 inch cubes which is too big. Added Italian seasoning to my plain bread crumbs. I do as little frying in my kitchen as I can get away with (hate frying) so I might not have done it right. Do sort of wonder why the flour is put on. My picture was taken right before the sun set with drinks on our deck so the lighting is not the best. I have some leftover and plan on warming them up in the oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Thanks MarraMamba for sharing. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders game.people found this review Helpful.

Marra, I have never made these before or even heard of them! They were little bites of heaven! :) I made these just as posted. I was thinking about adding some basil in with the mozzerella next time. Can't wait until Dh comes home and tries one!! Thanks for posting this keeper!!!people found this review Helpful. You can only vote others' reviews helpful or not helpful...

These were just delicious!! I don't care for onions so left them out, otherwise made as directed. I've never had arancini before and you didn't mention how they should be served, so I just topped some with my favorite meat sauce and served some plain. Both ways they were fantastic!!

I used hot chicken broth in place of water and increased the fresh garlic, I also added in some fresh chopped parsley, salt and black pepper, we enjoyed the arancini, thanks for posting MarraMamba!...Kitten:)people found this review Helpful.
