    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.

      • Laura says:

        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.”

    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.

    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.
