Bacon adds a savory surprise to this easy risotto. It's quite tasty on its own, thanks to a blend of chicken broth, Parmesan and cream cheese.

    Unfortunately, not my favorite. The bacon took too long to crisp to the onions burned so the final product came out brown and didn't look too appetizing. I think I would cook the bacon first, then add the onions after. It was also kind of mushy and thick. Not one that is going into my rotation.

    My husband and I really liked this recipe and it was very easy to make. The flavors went together very well.
