Loaded Baked Potato Risotto

There is no food more versatile than the potato – fried, boiled, baked, or roasted, potatoes are satisfying, nutritious (with more potassium than a banana), and always delicious. As an Italian Islander I have two comfort food staples: risotto and potatoes. So I decided to marry them into a single dish with a play on everyone's favourite – the loaded baked potato.  The russet potatoes generously soak up all the bold flavours from the bacon, beer, and cheddar, creating a rich, velvety dish.
