A quick and easy recipe to have on hand for a simple side dish! I loved the mushrooms and the rest of my family loved the bacon! Served it with salmon but I imagine it would go well with just about anything. Instead of bouillon cubes, I just used chicken stock in place of the water to cook the rice. Very flavorful!

Very good! The bacon really makes a difference in this recipe. I usually add a couple cloves of minced garlic with the onions.

This is a savory and fantastic recipe. I didn't have bacon on hand, but I did have bacon drippings in the fridge so I used that for the bacon flavor; didn't really miss the bacon. The addition of dried oregano really made the dish. Will make this again.

Loved the flavor of this recipe. My husband doesn't really love rice, but the bacon made it worth it for him! I added garlic while sauting the mushrooms and onions. I will be making this again!
