Truffle Arancini Balls Recipe

Serves:  4-6
Preparation Time: 30 minutes (plus chilling)
Cooking Time: 15 minutes


  • 300g jar of Truffle Hill Truffle Risotto
  • 100g butter
  • 1.5L stock of choice
  • 200g cheddar cheese, grated
  • 150g mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 2 cups panko bread crumbs
  • 1 cup cooking oil
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • Truffle Hill Truffle Sea Salt, to taste

Preparation Steps:

  1. Prepare the Risotto: Cook the truffle risotto according to the directions on the jar. Allow to cool and then refrigerate.
  2. Mix Ingredients: Once chilled, combine the risotto with cheddar and mozzarella cheeses, parsley, and season with Truffle Hill Truffle Sea Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Set Up Dredging Station: Arrange three bowls – one for flour, one for beaten eggs, and one for panko crumbs.
  4. Form Arancini Balls: Roll the risotto mixture into balls about the size of a small plum.
  5. Coat the Balls: First, coat each ball in flour, dip it in the beaten eggs, and roll it in panko crumbs to coat thoroughly.
  6. Fry the Arancini: Heat the cooking oil in a pan. Shallow fry the arancini balls, turning them until they are golden brown and crispy.
