eidted: oops! didn't see mish's earlier post.
there's a gastronomic delight sold in pizza places around here called a rice ball, aka arancini, or arancini di riso. i think it's originally a sicillian dish made with leftover risotto, but i've seen them made with white rice as well.
it is literally just what it's name infers (no, it's not from male rice
): rice, mixed with herbs, cheeses, egg yolks, meat, and it is rolled into a ball. it is then dipped in eggwhites, covered in italian bread crumbs and deep or pan fried, and served covered in tomato sauce.
i'm not partial to them, but some of the guys at work love 'em.
