Spaghetti with Eggs and Bacon Recipe

Most folks are surprised to see this combination of ingredients. But I usually make a big batch because it always disappears in a hurry.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces uncooked spaghetti
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 pound bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • Additional grated Parmesan cheese, optional

Directions

  • 1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions in a 6-qt. stockpot. In a small saucepan, whisk eggs and cream until blended. Cook over low heat until a thermometer reads 160°, stirring constantly (do not allow to simmer). Remove from heat; stir in cheese.
  • 2. Drain spaghetti; return to stockpot. Add sauce and bacon; toss to combine. Serve immediately. If desired, sprinkle with additional cheese. Yield: 4 servings.
