A is for: Arancini Skewers {Risotto Balls}

I'm a sucker for cheese and charcuterie.

Like, if you are a restaurant and you have some sort of meat and cheese plate on your menu, chances are, I'm ordering it. And when I'm entertaining, you can almost count on the fact there will be some sort of board filled with Italian meats, cheeses, olives, nuts, dried fruit and those adorable mini pickles.

So when Icons of European Taste reached out about a potential collaboration, I immediately jumped at the opportunity. Create a recipe using Prosciutto di San Daniele and Grana Padano?

Sign. Me. Up.

I immediately began cooking up ideas in my brain... pasta, mini pizzas, crostatas, meatballs, deviled eggs, prosciutto wrapped asparagus... the list was extensive. But the idea that really resonated on both sides was Arancini... or if you're like my boyfriend and get annoyed by fancy names: risotto balls. They've been on my list for awhile to create for the blog, so I was super excited to come up with a version for these very special Italian products.
