Recipe: Leftover turkey stuffing balls

To make rice balls: In a medium bowl, mix together stuffing, 2 eggs, Romano cheese, salt, and pepper.
To assemble rice balls: Place 2 tablespoons of the rice mixture in your hand and insert a cube of mozzarella and a teaspoon of the meat mixture into the center. Roll into a ball and repeat to form the remaining rice balls.
To cook rice balls: In a small bowl, beat 1 egg to form an egg wash. Dip each rice ball in the egg wash and then roll in the bread crumbs. Heat about 1½-inches of oil to 325°F in an 8-or 10-inch skillet. Fry the rice balls about 2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
