I made this the other night, and it's so so good. Then I went back to this post and saw that we served it the same way, with chives (and also pancetta instead of bacon as that's what I had). The poached egg yolk is wonderful on top! Thanks for the inspiration :-)

[...] be thinking: risotto again, Jen? Well, yes. You know I love the stuff, and I guess since the whole bacon & egg risotto thing reverberated around the internet, I’ve been a little risotto-obsessed. It’s such a [...]

rootlesscosmo - ah, Lidia. I'm a big fan. :) Both of those methods for leftover risotto sound just wonderful. Jaden - thank you! I might try leaving the yolk in the water just a few seconds less next time, but all in all, I was happy with the results for my first attempt.

What a gorgeous photo! I think you poached the egg perfectly - I love how it spills into the rice yet still retains its shape.

Add an egg or two to leftover risotto; form a cup-like shape with a tablespoon or so of this in one hand, tuck in a mozzarrella "bocconcino" and a shred of prosciutto, spoon more risotto on to enclose, roll in panko and deep fry in olive oil. Death on a plate, but what a way to go. Or: butter the inside of a ramekin, coat with bread crumbs, fill half way with risotto, bocconcino and prosciutto as above, more risotto, bake 15-20 minutes at 375° F., serve with leftover Ragù Bolognese in which you've simmered some fresh peas. You can learn a lot from Lidia, as Groucho sang long ago...

Hi eva! I really like the complexity that vermouth has - I probably use it more often than white wine now!

mmm! Looks great - can't wait to try this. I started using vermouth for risottos after I read about it in a Jaimie Oliver book, and it's my norm now. I love the aroma. Wow - my stomach is growling!
