    Very nice recipe! They went over well at our picnic. Next time I'm only going to add 1 egg...a little too eggy for me. But other than that, these were delicious! I found the little mozzarella balls, that were marinated, and used those. I ended up getting about 12 Suppli's, that were a very nice size ball.

    These are wonderful I normally make them with tomato risotto(like my arancini recipe) but this time used yours as a base and the risotto was a wonderful lemon parmesan. A terrific comfort food
