Directions

  1. Put the wild rice and water in a small sauce pan.
  2. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to a bare simmer, cover and cook until the rice is tender, 1 to 1 1/4 hours.
  3. While the rice is cooking, saute the bacon until golden brown and crisp, then drain on a paper towel.
  4. Cut the bacon crosswise into thin julienne strips and set aside.
  5. When the rice is done, gently stir in the butter with a fork until melted; season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Just before serving, toss the rice with the bacon strips.
