Think of a fried brekky, everyone loves it! Fried eggs, fried bacon – well vegetarian bacon for us, on toast. Who can think of anything better, right?
How about making a pasta out of it?
This fried feast is balanced by the simple spaghetti and a little olive oil. It’s extremely delicious and, yes, probably a little unhealthy, but if you are in the mood for something like this, why not?
In taste, it’s sort of your alternative to a carbonara but only a dry version. And, for those who can only cook fried eggs on toast, you may be able add another dish to your repertoire with this delicious alternative. A simple dish, but absolutely delicious in taste!
dinner for two
cooked spaghetti for two
2 eggs (I use free range)
3 bacon strips (vegetarian of course)
1/3 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tbs butter (or alternative)
1 tsp garlic mince
salt and cracked pepper to taste
parmesan (grated) is optional
In a pan, add your olive oil and butter.
Once boiling, drop the heat down and crack your eggs in the pan. I use an egg ring to keep the shape and to stop it spreading too far.
Place in your bacon pieces.
Once cooked, allow to cool and cut the eggs and bacon roughly into small pieces.
In your pot, add your cooked spaghetti, breadcrumbs, garlic and seasoning. Heat until the garlic is cooked.
Mix in your egg and bacon with the oil mixture.
Allow to warm through and the oil to begin to evaporate.
(OPTIONAL STEP) : Mix parmesan into the mixture if you like and serve with some parmesan on top and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil if the mixture is now a little dry.
