So much so that I even prepared them with leftover rice , and believe me they turned out even better because the mixture was more compact.

Simply heat them up a little to make the heart go stringy again.

How to make baked rice balls

First of all, boil the rice in plenty of water and salt, drain al dente and stir in the pan with butter and saffron. Then transfer to a baking tray to cool and compact well.

Then dedicate yourself to the ragù by chopping onion, celery and carrot, fry in oil, then add the minced meat and brown for 1 minute, then add the wine and let it evaporate.

Finally add the puree, bay leaf, cloves and cook for about 50 minutes. at the end of cooking it should be dense and creamy, add the peas and cook for another 10 – 15 minutes without crushing them.

Then remove the bay leaves and cloves, let them cool well and add the grated caciocavallo cheese and a pinch of salt. Leave aside to cool.

Rice and filling must be perfectly cold.

At this point the trick for cooking arancini in the oven

Once you have made all the balls, place them in the fridge for 30 minutes so that they harden even better, this step will ensure that they do not open during cooking!

Finally when you prepare the breading. add flour and water to a bowl to form a batter. First pass them in this batter then dip them in the breadcrumbs, round them very well between your hands so that they will be very compact.

Then place on a baking tray previously lined with baking paper with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
