Delia's Baked Risotto Carbonara

Has anyone ever made this? It is a Delia Smith recipe.

If so, was it alright?

No, I've never made any of her baked risotto recipes but my former neighbour used to swear by them ages ago - I have a feeling there are a couple of recipes in her Winter cooking book.

I think this is the recipe I used...it was very good as a starter. With garlic bread?

Oooh, thank you. It's easy to make ordinary risotto of course but this looks useful if you are entertaining.

I've made her baked mushroom risotto years ago and it was nice. Although one of the best parts of making a risotto is surely stirring it with spoon in one hand and glass of wine in the other!

I do like the thought of carbonara flavours in a risotto though, I might give this a go.

Ah yes, Amber, this is the same recipe as in her Winter Collection and the one my neighbour used to make.

I had a go at the carbonara tonight but added assorted mushrooms as well. The recipe worked perfectly. I did think the ingredients looked quite rich and by golly it was, the amount of butter and cheese was very generous and one only needed a very small helping indeed. I think the amount of cheese could be could halved and it would still be good. I wouldn't mind less butter but you would need enough fat or oil to coat the rice at the start, half butter and half another oil might work. I shall try again sometime and make a few tweaks.

It's best eaten fresh but I've loads left and shall be inventive over the next few days - I'd like to make a kind of Arancini but it would have to be dry fried or baked!

I used to make this often, some years ago, it was my daughter's favourite and back when I wouldn't have been brave enough to cook a stove top risotto.
I make similar now in a pan on the stove, but wouldn't rule out the oven method, it does work.
