Number of Servings: 6


    5 cups chicken broth
    2 T EVOO
    1/2 c chopped white onion
    2 cloves garlic
    1/2 lb bacon
    2 C white rice
    1/2 C white wine
    8 oz Scallops
    3 T grated parmesan cheese
    2 t butter


1. In a saucepan, heat chicken broth until barely simmering, then cover with lid to keep warm.
2. In another saucepan, heat olive oil. Add onions, garlic, and bacon, and cook until vegetables are soft and bacon is cooked, about 5-7 mins.
3. Add rice and lightly toast, about 2 mins.
4. Lower the heat and add wine. Cook for 2 mins. Add 1 1/2 cups broth and cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid is almost completely absorbed. Repeat with broth, adding a bit at a time and letting it absorb, until broth is gone and risotto is tender and creamy.
5. Stir in scallops and cook until opaque, about 3 mins. Stir in parsley, cheese, and butter.
