Leftover risotto

Does anyone know a simple method for making risotto balls? We've got leftover baked risotto from last night and no easy way to reheat. The recipes I've found for risotto balls all seem quite complicated and I need an easy dinner. I have bread crumbs and eggs. Thanks.

Nigel Slater did them on his programme recently so if you Google ? Seemed very easy.

How about stuffed sweet peppers/courgettes/mushrooms?

Saying that DH takes leftover risotto to work, adds extra liquid and microwaves. Not cordon bleu but not poisened him yet !

I'd just squidge it into balls, roll it in the egg, then the crumbs and Giovanni's yer Uncle.

Stick a mini mozzarella ball in the middle of each one and they'll beautifully oozy. After flouring, egging and breadcrumbing, either shallow fry or bake in a hot oven (heat the tray first).

Report back!

Right, thanks. I'm just going for the roll, coat and fry method. But not until I've got two small people to bed...

I make what I call risotto fritatta. Unlikely to earn me a Michelin star but v tasty and simpler than risotto balls. Beat a couple of eggs and stir into the risotto with some cheese (grated parmesan, mozzarella or even cheddar if that's what you've got. Spread it into a hot frying pan with some olive oil on a low heat (I do it with a lid on the pan so it doesn't get too dry) then pop the whole pan under the grill to brown on top (my pan has a metal handle - obviously with a plastic handle you would have to turn it over to cook the other side) Serve in wedges with a big salad. Yum.

WildRumpus, that would work in muffin/yorkshire pudding tins as well, to make small nibbles. Yum. Indeed.

I've got one here

It was surprisingly easy, just took a bit of prep time.
