    Serves 2

    Total Time 1 hour

    Prep Time 15 mins

    Difficulty Level Medium


    3 cups cold, cooked risotto

    1/2 cup grated Parmesan

    2 tbsps heavy cream

    2 tbsps minced fresh flat-leaf parsley

    1 large egg yolk

    Salt and freshly ground pepper

    5 ounces Brie cheese

    All-purpose flour for dredging

    1 large egg whisked with 2 tbsp water (egg wash)

    Vegetable oil for deep-frying (egg wash)

    2 cups of your favorite tomato sauce


    1. In a large bowl, combine the risotto with the Parmesan, cream, herbs, and egg yolk. Season with salt and pepper.

    2. Cut the cheese into 16 cubes. Scoop up about 3 Tbsp of the risotto mixture and pack it around a cube of cheese to make a small ball.

    3. Repeat to form 16 croquettes. Put the flour, egg wash, and bread crumbs in 3 separate bowls.

    4. Dredge the croquettes in the flour, dip in the egg wash, and roll in the bread crumbs. Chill thoroughly, 2-24 hours.

    5. Pour oil into a tall pot to a depth of 5 inches. Heat the oil over medium-high heat until it registers 375°F on a deep-frying thermometer.

    6. Deep-fry the croquettes in batches, without crowding, until they are evenly browned, 4-5 minutes.

    7. Using a slotted spoon, carefully transfer to paper towels to drain briefly. Serve on a pool of warmed tomato sauce.
