Or simmer in Crock-Pot all day like I do. That’s the best way! 🙂
I have to ask… what is “rendered bacon”? Is that just regular sliced bacon, or is there something else going on there?
Haven’t you heard of the “rendered hog?” LMAO!!! I have NO idea.
That was one of the first things I thought of… hmmm, when you ‘render’ something, you boil it down to its basic parts. But then I thought, ‘how do you do that with bacon?’ Isn’t it ALREADY in its basic parts? So THEN, I thought, ‘ok, cook the bacon down to liquid, like you’d render fat for suet.’ So, I guess I was on the right track…
You know, it’s the term that was on the recipe my friend gave me. I asked the same thing and she told me it is just cooking it down to where it almost burnt. Very crispy. You don’t want the bacon soft at all.
We eat a good bit of rice and this seems like an awefully long time to cook rice. Has anyone tried this yet?
I don’t see “rendered bacon” but rather “rendered bacon fat.”
No, the term she has on her recipe card is wrongly used. Don’t blame the messenger. I just copied it!!! LOL
It’s wild rice, so you have to cook it longer. Yes I have made this a dozen times at least.
I love wild rice soup.I have a recipe I use and it has corn in it..would be great in this one too.Nikki,I made the cheeseburger one again this weekend for company.
I made it Sunday, and Jason took some to work. 🙂 We put it in miniature bread bowls this time. It was SO good.
We love wild rice soup but I’ve never made it this way. It looks really good. I’ve never put in bacon or cheese. Also in a pinch, they have canned wild rice and you can skip that cooking part. I think I may make this for Wed. I’ll have a long day and this will be nice to come home and have supper ready and waiting.
Everything is better with bacon and cheese.
I can’t argue with that one bit.
