IntroductionSkip To The Recipe

Champagne rice.

Rice is so much fun to prepare.  I had half of a bottle of Champagne in the refrigerator and, as we all know, no matter how we do, the bubbles have tendency to subside after a couple of days.
When preparing rice I always put a bit of white wine or champagne with the onions and bacon, why not prepare the whole rice dish with it? The result was a very pleasant combination. Do not let it intimidate you and wine is also a great substitute.
Taste before seasoning would be my only advise while preparing this dish. I did not add any salt to it.
