  1. I love risotto with bacon. I had some once with apple, blue cheese and bacon and it was delicious. I love dishes that use up the odds and ends of the fridge!

  2. Sounds delicious. I'm always on the look-out for tasty side dishes, because I get tired of plain old potatoes and rice. This looks so fun, though! Leeks have an amazing flavor, and we all know bacon makes everything better...so I know this is a recipe worth holding on to :D.
