This No Stir Bacon Apple Risotto is without a doubt the BEST fall comfort food that has been on repeat in out house since I first started testing this recipe!
Browned butter that stubby little short grain rice absorbs along with apple cider, white wine, garlic, onion, plus all the flavors from BACON.
This simple risotto comes together in under an hour and turns out creamy, fluffy, full of fall flavors, and pretty much my kind of comfort food. PLUS it's glutenfree and requires little to no stirring.
Making this SO much easier than your traditional stir-every-5-seconds-risotto.
Which I know would go against Gordon Ramsay's methods....but most days most of us don't have time for stirring risotto for 45 minutes straight!
What makes this recipe so unique is I used Bison Bacon to elevate the flavors to drool--worthy heights.
How this No Stir Risotto comes together
I wanted to make a risotto recipe for some time here on the blog but wanted an easier version. It starts with toasting the rice in golden BROWNED butter, oil, and seasonings. Next we add the wine. (If you do not like cooking with wine just use an equal amount of apple cider or juice).
Pour the broth over and cover for about 15 minutes. TRUST THE PROCESS.
The next is KEY. Add a bit of brie and one more cup of broth. This is the only stirring in this recipe and what makes this risotto creamy and oh so good!
Serve it up with extra bacon like i did.
Or as a great easy side for Thanksgiving dinner.
Perfect hearty fall comfort food FTW!
