Cook the bacon on medium heat until aromatic and golden brown.
Add the milk and consommé and cook on low. Mix as the consommé dissolves.
Once it starts bubbling, add the grated cheese and rice.
Simmer on low heat for 3 minutes, and check the flavor. Add salt if you don't think it's salty enough. (the salt from the bacon and consommé is enough, so I omit it).
Pour in the egg, and cook for 30 seconds on low heat while mixing, then stop the heat.
Transfer to a serving plate, top with black pepper if you like, and it's complete.
Story Behind this Recipe
I was mulling over whether to make risotto or carbonara spaghetti, so I combined the two. This can be made easily in 15 minutes, so this is something I'm going to use for our Italian-themed girls meet-up.
Adding the consommé is a simple way to give this a rich flavor.
Add the egg last, and stop the heat after 30 seconds.
