Mushroom and Sun-Dried Tomato Risotto

October 21, 2017

Risotto can take some patience and some elbow grease to make, but when you pair it with wine and some good chatter, nothing can be better than making risotto. A little a stir here, a little sip there, next thing you know your boyfriend/SO/hubby has taken over because you’re too drunk to avoid burning yourself. Amiright?  Oh wait, does this only happen to me?

I don’t know how many times I’ve made risotto and never though to put a recipe together, but after serving this to a few friends and receiving some good feedback. Heck, why not post this recipe!

Now this recipe isn’t going to be a copycat of Papa John’s, no not at all! This recipe is a result of my recent pizza night FOMO (feeling of missing out) experience. I thought what would be better than pizza night? Breakfast pizza! Pizza with soft baked, ooey-gooey runny yolks.
