Anancini – Sicilian Street Food

To make these Sicilian cheese-filled snacks, you first have to make risotto, then use the risotto to make cheese-stuffed balls, then coat them with breadcrumbs and deep-fry them. It’s a labor of love that will make other people love you, which is reason enough to give this a try.

There are many recipes out there so just pick one.  A few hints that Sicilian Cooks have recommended are:

  • Buy an Arnancinotto on Amazon
  • Use seasoned breadcrumbs
  • Do not add cheese to bread crumbs, add the cheese to the rice when done cooking.  This prevents the cheese from burning when frying.
