Cooked wild rice

Yield: 2 servings

Measure Ingredient
⅓ cup Wild Rice
1 cup Water
1 each Bacon Strip; Thick, Lean
1 teaspoon Butter; Unsalted
1 x Salt
1 x White Pepper; Freshly Ground

Put the wild rice and water in a small sauce pan.

Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to a bare simmer, cover and cook until the rice is tender, 1 to 1¼ hours. While the rice is cooking, saute the bacon until golden brown and crisp, then drain on a paper towel. Cut the bacon crosswise into thin julienne strips and set aside. When the rice is done, gently stir in the butter with a fork until melted; season to taste with salt and pepper. Just before serving, toss the rice with the bacon strips.
