Risotto Cakes

By Christina Collins

One of the great indulgences in life is Risotto. But how about risotto cakes? You take one of the most wonderful foods and you can fry it….Mmm Mmm Good.

Risotto cakes are really easy to make. Make your favorite risotto recipe and chill it, form small patties, coat in panko bread crumbs and fry.

I am a big fan of Ina Garten’s Chive Risotto cakes. The recipe is really easy and everyone will think it took you hours of slaving over the stove!
