Too Good Not To Share

I wanted to cook up something a little different for dinner this week so I dug deep into my recipe archives and pulled out one of my old childhood favorites. My ma used to make this one pot meal for dinner, oh I don't know, at least ONCE A WEEK! Just teasin', ma. You know us kids loved it! I had forgotten about this dish until last week when I saw the cooking segment on the Today Show. To my surprise, they were cooking up Egg Spaghetti!

So here's how you make Egg Spaghetti my ma's way:

1 pound spaghetti noodles, cooked
4 raw eggs
8-10 slices of cooked bacon
Bacon grease
Grated Parmesan cheese

  • Fry up your bacon in the frying pan, as directed. (save bacon grease).
  • Cook spaghetti noodles, as directed.
  • Drain noodles, but leave them in the hot pot.
  • Stir in hot bacon grease.
  • Immediately crack the 4 raw eggs into the hot spaghetti noodles.
  • Stir until the egg is cooked completely and mixed into the noodles.
  • Break bacon into pieces and add to spaghetti mixture.
  • Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over top and serve while hot.
There you have it! A one pot meal that's sure to be a hit with your whole family! I served mine with breadsticks.

This must be regional. I have never heard of it. I am looking for the "healthy" part of this meal and it seems to be missing -- although it does sound tasty!

Never would have thought of this combo. Sounds good.

My boys would try it. After all, on the TV show iCarly, they eat Spaghetti tacos and we tried that and they loved those.
