Leftover Risotto?

Whenever I make a risotto, I usually end up with a lot of leftover.

The problem with leftover risotto is that you can't duplicate the creaminess from the night before by simply reheating it in a microwave.

What I frequently do is to take the cold, mushy rice, shape it into small patties, press the patties in dry bread crumbs or panko flakes on each side, and pan-fry them in a little oil until lightly brown on each side.
