I just heat it in a pan over low heat and maybe adding a bit of whatever stock you made it with if its to thick.

Call me lazy - I reheat in the microwave.

Make into balls and fry them.

No coating of any kind, right? Just form into balls and place in oil?

Seal your risotto in a FoodSaver bag and gently simmer it in water until heated thru.

Olive oil or butter. Flatten into cakes.

I'm a big believer in the microwave for re-heating anything that is thick and will easily burn. BUT you can add an egg or two (depending on how much you have) and make a fritatta.

Actually leftover risotto leaves much to be desired, no matter how you reheat it. We try not to produce too much of leftover, if there is a bit of it left we choose to "sacrifice our bellies" and finish it off.

However if there HAS TO be some leftovers, I agree with candocook, I would make those fried balls, or arancini, with a dice of mozzarella in the centre, lightly bread the surface (note to kitchenelf!) and deep fry them. A delicious snack or antipasto!!

I store leftover risotto in a casserole and sprinkle just a tiny bit of water over it right before reheating it in a microwave on reduced power until it's just warm, stirring it once or twice.

I know risotto should be eaten immediately after cooking it, but with just the two of us, that's not going to happen. So I've found that this method works fairly well. It may not be quite as good as the first time around, but that's okay.
