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.

I’ve never made risotto in a rice cooker, could I use the microwave version?

Just to confirm- do you use a whole leek or half a leek for this recipe?

Impressive! I always cook it in Redmond 4502 multicooker – it is fantastic! All my friends love food from multicooker, because it is very fast and tasty, and this recipe too, try it in multicooker, you will be pretty surprised.

Hi Katrina, sounds lovely. How long do u cook it for in rice cooker? I don’t have a rice cooker, but if it doesn’t take too long, I think I will dash out and buy one as I am going back to full time work. Thanks
