Taleggio, an Italian soft cheese, gives this risotto a distinctly rustic flavor that goes beautifully with the smokiness of the bacon.

How to Make It

Step 1

Warm oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and bacon and cook, stirring often, until starting to brown. Add rice to pan and stir to coat in oil. Pour in wine and cook until evaporated, about 3 minutes.

Step 2

Mix 2 cups hot water into broth and stir into rice in 1/2-cup increments (let each absorb before adding next). Stir, adding more hot water if needed, until rice is tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 3

Remove from heat and quickly stir in cheeses, salt, and pepper. Top with a sprinkle of chives.

We really enjoyed this, but it definitely took more than 30 minutes to make -- but the end product was definitely worth it!
