The best creamy risotto made with apples, bacon and a hint of thyme.
It's apple season around our yard (only one tree and about 200+ Regent apples!) and I been asked by the DIY Guy to start using them up. We've made crisps and pies but I really wanted to try them in a savory recipe. Risotto happens to be one of my favorite side dishes. I use to be intimidated by the directions and all that stirring, but the time goes quick and then you are left with this creamy and flavorful dish - the perfect comfort food!
Ok, so I only used one apple but it was LARGE! Now we only have 199+ apples to go. I can see some applesauce, more crisps and pies in my future along with some apple caramel bars that I'll be sharing soon. And let's not forget eating them... that's allowed too - you know an apple a day...
Do you have any other ideas for me? Let me know!
Enjoy this creamy mushroom risotto recipe too.
