    Bacon Apple Risotto

    The beauty of this dish is it can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner. A bit of savory, a touch of sweet and the perfect creaminess of the risotto make it a game-changer. Feel free to replace the consomme with chicken or vegetable broth if desired. You can also use white wine instead of red.
