Sorry about the picture...the lighting in my kitchen struggles. And OH MY GOSH!!!! This is the BEST stuff I've ever eaten in my ENTIRE life!!!

1 T olive oil
1 T butter
1 small or 1/2 medium onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound Arborio rice
7 to 8 c chicken broth
1 c heavy cream
2 cups (total) grated Parmesan, Romano, and/or Asiago cheese
Salt & Pepper to taste
Chopped chives

Heat oil and butter in large skillet, then add chopped onion and garlic and cook until soft. Dump in 1 pound dry Arborio rice, and stir to coat. Then add the broth, in 1-cup increments, stirring after each addition until liquid is absorbed (add one cup broth, stir until liquid is absorbed, then add another cup, etc.) This takes about 20-30 mintues. Rice is done when it no longer has a hard bite. After all liquid is absorbed, add cream, cheese, salt & pepper, and stir to combine. Stir in chives and serve immediately. THE BEST THING I'VE EVER HAD!!!!!!

  1. This looks really good! Did you eat this as a main course or a side dish? If it's a side dish, any recommendations of what to eat it with?
