You forget your eating leftovers

I've made these risotto cakes twice using leftover tomato & sausage rissotto and served them with a simple salad for dinner. Its a nice way to use up the the leftover rissotto without feeling like your eating leftovers. My toddler who won't eat the original rissotto ate & enjoyed the cakes, which makes it a winning recipe here.

Sounds Bland

Unless risotto is already seasoned, the taste would be bland. I would add some fresh chopped basil, shredded mozzarella and grated parm.
