Ingredients

  • 250g pack smoked bacon, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 25g butter
  • 300g risotto rice
  • half a glass of white wine (optional)
  • 150g pack cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 700ml hot chicken stock (from a cube is fine)
  • 50g parmesan, grated

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Fry the bacon pieces in an ovenproof pan or casserole dish for 3-5 mins until golden and crisp. Stir in the onion and butter and cook for 3-4 mins until soft. Tip in the rice and mix well until coated. Pour over the wine if using and cook for 2 mins until absorbed.

  • STEP 2

    Add the cherry tomatoes and the hot stock, then give the rice a quick stir. Cover with a tightly fitting lid and bake for 18 mins until just cooked. Stir through most of the parmesan and serve sprinkled with the remainder.
