Spiced Wild Rice and Bacon "Stuffing"

8 ounces thick-cut smoked bacon
1 large white onion, finely diced
3 cloves garlic, finely diced
2 carrots, finely diced
2 stalks celery, finely diced
1 tablespoon fresh thyme
4 tablespoon extra creamy butter
2 cups wild rice, washed
2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons ground coriander
1 teaspoons ground cinnamon
4 cups chicken or turkey stock

Slice bacon into 1/4" thick (bite-size) chunks. Render bacon on medium heat. Add onion, garlic, butter, carrots and thyme and sweat on medium heat 5-7 minutes. Add rice, simmer 5-10 minutes. Add stock and remaining spices. Simmer on low/med heat for 1 hour or until rice is firm, not mushy or crunchy.

Remove from heat, let stand 10 minutes stirring occasionally to release steam and serve. Or stuff if you're a stuffer...
