Oven baked bacon and mushroom risotto

Oven baked bacon and mushroom risotto


  1. Add the olive oil to a large frying pan and sauté the pancetta, mushrooms and onion until the mushrooms are cooked, the onion is opaque and the pancetta is crisp.
  2. Drain the porcini (ceps) mushrooms, reserving the soaking liquor, and then chop them up finely and add them to the fried pancetta, fresh mushrooms and onion mixture.
  3. Sauté for about 5 minutes and then add the rice, wine, porcini soaking liquor and stir vigorously.
  4. Transfer the risotto to an oven­proof baking dish or casserole dish with a lid.
  5. Cover the risotto with tinfoil or a lid and bake in a pre­heated oven 200C/400F/Gas Mark 6 for 25 to 30 minutes or until the risotto is soft and creamy. Stir through the chopped parsley and serve immediately with crusty bread and salad.
