Bacon, Leek and Corn Risotto

A hearty yet pleasingly light risotto recipe that’s packed with tasty bacon, leek and corn – it’s delicious, quick, and super easy to make!

Risotto is so delicious and versatile! Serve as a simple starter, or bulk up with delicious protein like bacon, and eat it as a hearty main with crunchy bread.

Bacon and leek risotto

This Bacon, Leek and Corn Risotto recipe is definitely a hearty melt-in-your-mouth meal! It’s so quick and easy to make too, and can be easily customised to suit your family’s tastes by adding in different veggies, or swapping out the bacon for a different meat.

I like to serve my Bacon, Leek and Corn Risotto with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and a side of crunchy garlic bread.
