4 cups of cooked rice (cooled)

1 cup of diced salami, pepperoni, prosciutto, and supresatta.

1 cup duced mozzarella, and provolone cheese

1/4 parmigiana cheese

1/4 cup ricotta

Fresh basil to taste

2 table spoon breadcrumbs

 

In a large mixing bowl combine all of the ingredients. Mix well until everything comes together. With your hands form the rice mixture into the size of a tennis ball. Bread the rice balls in the traditional breading method first in flower then in a egg wash and finally into seasoned breadcrumbs. Preheat your oil in a deep frying pot. Once oil reaches 350° gently place the breaded rice balls into the oriole cook until golden brown and frequently move them in the oil with a slotted spoon. Once golden brown remove from oil and served with a simple marinara sauce.
