No matter what I do in life, it seems it’s always better when bacon is involved. There is just something about the sweet, salty, meaty combination that makes us all fall in love with it.
I’m not even sure when and where I saw this recipe. It might have been a posting from a local restaurant or a picture in a magazine, but when I saw bacon and risotto in the same sentence, I knew I wanted to make it On that same note I remember thinking how much my husband liked scallops and how much I like risotto, so as in life….a perfect pairing!
I’ve always made what I think is a pretty good risotto, but I’ve always used parmesan. This recipe just shows you that it’s okay to think outside of the box. Of course, the nice thing about risotto is you can add pretty much whatever you really like and it will come out good. That is the beauty of this dish.
When you see a picture or have an idea that inspires you….give it a try. Nothing lost, nothing gained as my grandmother would always say. You might actually find you’ve created something worth talking about!
