This is a great recipe, once you try it, it will always be a favorite. I don't deep fry often but this is worth it!! I some times add mozzarella cube in center and have a little tomato sauce on the side The size of the balls will determin # of servings
- Cook sausage meat, chop meat and onions
- Drain grease.
- Add peas and tomato paste.
- Add cheese.
- Mix with cooked rice.
- Shape into balls ( I find bigger than a golf ball, smaller than a base ball is about right ).
- Dip in egg.
- Roll in bread crumbs.
- Deep fry till brown 2-3 at a time.( 2 minutes ).
- drain on paper towel.
These are the best rice balls I've ever made. I tried to please my children by leaving out the peas. It is a mistake peas are a must. I also like to cut up some jalapeño peppers to make it a little spicy for myself. Love this recipe!
