"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Directions:
cook bacon in a large pot until crisp

at medium heat, add the onion and cook in the bacon fat until translucent**

add the rice and stir until it's thoroughly coated with the oils from the pot

deglaze pot with white wine and let it simmer down for a couple minutes

add one cup of chicken broth and bring it to a simmer while stirring slowly

once the rice absorbs most of the broth, add another cup and continue stirring

continue to add one cup of broth at a time while stirring slowly until each cup is absorbed into the rice

Personal Notes:
**(alternatively: one could drain the bacon fat, add olive oil, and cook the onion in that)

It is imperative to stir slowly but constantly from beginning to end! This keeps the rice from sticking to the bottom and it creates that creamy texture.
