Recipe: Mike Isabella's Rice Bean Arancini with Bacon and Cheddar

Rice Bean Arancini with Bacon and Cheddar Sicilians have been frying leftover risotto into golden, bread crumb-coated arancini for centuries (and it’s not hard to see why). Mike Isabella of Graffiato and Top Chef fame plays on this age-old recipe by crafting his arancini from rice beans, the tiny legumes that resemble grains of rice but boast a softer, creamier texture. For an added twist, he also stuffs his fritters with hunks of bacon and sharp cheddar cheese. Get the recipe here.
