 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      cups          white rice, cooked in 4 cups of water
    2                    eggs
    8      oz.           ricotta
    8      oz.           shredded mozzarella
    4      oz.           diced ham
    2      heaping       TBS Parmesan cheese
                         salt & pepper
      1/2  cup           seasoned bread crumbs
                         bread crumbs for coating rice balls
                         olive oil
 
 
 To the cooked rice add all of the ingredients except the last two. Mixture
 should be slightly wet. If it won't form into balls, add more bread crumbs. If
 too dry, add another egg. Form into the size of meatballs. Roll in additional
 bread crumbs. Gently place into skillet with enough oil to come up 3/4ths of
 the way of the rice ball. Cook until well browned on all sides. Makes about 30
 rice balls. Optional: Chopped meat and/or peas can be added to the mixture.
