One-Pot Bacon Mushroom Risotto

Here is what you’ll need

Servings: 4-6

3 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, sliced
5 strips of bacon, diced
8 ounces sliced wild mushrooms, such as porcini or shiitake
1½ cups arborio rice
½ cup dry white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc
5 cups chicken broth
½ cup parmesan cheese, plus more for garnish

In a heavy bottom pot (such as a Dutch oven), heat the olive oil over medium heat.
Add the onion and cook 3-4 minutes until soft and slightly transparent.
Add the bacon and stir constantly. As it crisps, add the mushrooms and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
Add the arborio rice and cook for one minute, stirring constantly so the oil coats the grains.
Stir in the white wine and simmer 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add one cup of the chicken stock and simmer over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Once the rice absorbs most of the liquid, continue to add 1-2 cups of stock at a time until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is cooked through, 25-30 minutes total. (The risotto should be al dente and fall back in on itself when you run the spoon along the bottom of the pot).
Stir in the parmesan cheese and remove from the heat.
Serve warm and enjoy

  1. Hi! Meat-eater here. My diet mainly consists of human meats though. Particularly the kidneys, heart, and trachea. I’m considering going vegan, but I don’t know if I’ll still be able to drink bleach. Can someone help me?

  2. K, you guys need to be quiet about the vegan comments. I haven’t really seen any bad ones, so idk what these random commenters are complaining about. If you’re vegan, you’re vegan. If you’re not, you’re not. I’m not vegan I eat meat, but I don’t care because half the things I eat are vegan because, nature.

  3. Made this tonight. Was good, but would be way better without the bacon. The bacon just doesn’t work here. I love bacon, but won’t use it again for this recipe.

  4. Why are people arguing over such nonsense does it really matter if your vegan or not for the vegans: chill animals reproduce for the non vegans: meat is delicious I guess for you guys bruuhh all of you shud jus chill
