Directions

Bring large skillet of water just to simmer over medium-low heat. Sprinkle water with salt. Working with 1 egg at a time, crack into small bowl and slide egg into simmering water. Cook eggs until whites are cooked through but yolks are still runny, 3-4 minutes. Using slotted spoon, carefully transfer poached eggs to medium bowl filled with ice water. Eggs can be made up to 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate in same bowl of ice water. Bring broth to simmer in medium saucepan; cover to keep warm. Heat oil in heavy large saucepan over medium heat. Add bacon and cook until crisp, stirring occasionally. Using slotted spoon transfer bacon to paper towels to drain. Add leeks to drippings in pan; cook until soft but not brown, stirring often, 4-5 minutes. Transfer 2 generous tablespoonfuls leeks to small bowl; reserve for garnish. Add rice to pan; stir 1-2 minutes. Add ½ cup warm broth to saucepan; stir until broth is absorbed. Repeat adding broth and stirring until rise is tender but still firm to bite and sauce is creamy, stirring almost constantly, about 23 minutes total. Add bacon, chopped parsley, butter, and and 2 tablespoons cheese. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Meanwhile, heat poached eggs in medium skillet of simmering water just until heated through, 1-2 minutes. Divide risotto among 6 bowls. Top risotto in each bowl with poached egg. Sprinkle egg with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with parsley loaves, additional cheese and reserved leeks.
