  • Bring broth and water just to boil in saucepan. Keep warm on low heat.
  • Cook bacon in large saucepan until crisp. Remove bacon from pan; drain on paper towels. Discard all but 2 Tbsp. drippings.
  • Return 1 Tbsp. drippings to pan. Add mushrooms and onions; cook on medium heat 4 min. or until tender, stirring frequently. Remove from pan; set aside.
  • Add remaining bacon drippings and rice to pan; cook and stir 1 min. Stir in 1 cup hot broth; bring just to simmer. Cook 5 min. or until most of the broth is absorbed, stirring occasionally. Repeat, adding remaining broth then wine, 1/2 cup at a time, until rice is tender. (This will take about 30 min.)
  • Remove saucepan from heat. Add butter; stir until melted. Crumble bacon. Add half to rice mixture along with the cheese, parsley and mushroom mixture; stir. Sprinkle with remaining bacon.
