Mushroom risotto balls

300 Batch Size
3 Portion per Batch
Unit Ingredients
2 gallon chicken stock
4 T olive oil
6 each onion, finely diced
6 cloves garlic, crushed
12 each  portobello mushrooms, wiped clean and diced
1 quart arborio rice
1 quart grated parmesan cheese
2 cups AP flour
 1/4 cups procaine powder
10 each eggs, beaten
1 pint breadcrumbs, fine
1 gallon Oil for frying

Place chicken stock in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to the boil, reduce heat, cover and keep at a low simmer. Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat; add onion, chopped mushrooms, garlic, and sweat.  Reduce heat to low, add rice and stir for until evenly coated with oil. Add warm stock and stir occasionally until rice is al dente. Add more stock or water if rice is sticking, but mixture should be slightly drier than regular risotto. Add parmesan and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cool completely.

Roll 1oz of risotto into balls and dust in flour, and procaine powder, shaking off excess. Dip into beaten egg and then breadcrumbs. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

fry risotto balls for 2-3 minutes or until golden. Drain on absorbent paper and place in oven to keep warm.

    I have always wanted to try making these but I never seem to have any leftover risotto.

      Simple just make fresh risotto…. or make extra risotto so that you know you will have enough to make them when you want to. Risotto also freezes well
