Keto Low Carb Bacon Risotto

After creating our previous risotto dishes, we knew we wanted to do a bacon risotto.  The flavors of bacon combined with the creamy cheesy sauce sounded like a match made in heaven!

Honestly, we believe that bacon makes anything better and it was no exception when it came to risotto!

The only snafu we noticed when creating this recipe was that if the bacon fat wasn’t cooked down enough in the beginning, it left quite a greasy mess.

So with that in mind, we were able to perfect the dish with just the right amount of bacon flavor without all the grease.

I’m sure when you try this recipe, you will be blown away at how cauliflower makes the perfect rice substitute for this low carb risotto.

Even family members couldn’t tell the difference and some actually prefer it to regular rice!

Even if you don’t follow a low-carb/keto diet, let’s get real, cauliflower is a much much healthier option than white rice so when given the choice, why not pick healthy right?

But trust me when I say as simple as a dish can get.  If you can stir fry a few ingredients together, you can definitely achieve this recipe!  All that and each serving comes in at ~6g net carb making it an great low-carb/keto option for you!

For this recipe, all the ingredients should be available at your local  supermarket.
