A note about serious food allergies

There really isn't a wrong time of day (or night) to enjoy the crispy, baked goodness of this spaghetti carbonara frittata. That's quite a few vowels for one dish, but a mouthful of syllables translates to a whole lot of deliciousness for you. Tender cooked spaghetti gets baked with smoky bacon, Parmesan cheese, and egg until it turns into a crispy, cheesy pie. It's a frittata that tastes right morning, noon, or night.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients and Cook Spaghetti

    Halve grape tomatoes. Cut bacon into 3/4" pieces. Add spaghetti to boiling water and cook 7 minutes. Drain in colander. Spaghetti will finish cooking in a later step.

  2. 2

    Render the Bacon

    While spaghetti cooks, line a plate with a paper towel and heat 1/2 tsp. olive oil in a medium oven-safe pan over medium heat. Add diced bacon and cook 6 minutes, stirring often, until slightly crispy. Remove to towel-lined plate. Carefully pour all but 1 tsp. of bacon fat into a heat-proof container to chill before discarding.

  3. 3

    Prepare the Frittata Mixture

    Working quickly so eggs don't scramble, toss cooked bacon (reserving a pinch for garnish), liquid egg, heavy cream, spaghetti, oregano, Parmesan cheese (reserving a pinch to top frittata), 1/2 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper together in a medium mixing bowl.

  4. 4

    Cook the Frittata

    Swirl pan so that reserved bacon fat covers entire pan, add frittata mixture, and top with remaining Parmesan cheese. Place pan in oven and cook 25-30 minutes, or until mixture is set (doesn't jiggle when you tap the pan) and cheese is lightly browned. Using an oven mitt, remove from oven and top with remaining bacon.

  5. 5

    Make the Vinaigrette

    While frittata bakes, wash mixing bowl used to toss frittata mixture. Whisk together vinegar, sugar, and 1 Tbsp. olive oil in mixing bowl and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  6. 6

    Plate the Dish

    Carefully slide frittata out of pan and slice, or serve slices directly from pan. Toss arugula and grape tomatoes with vinaigrette and serve alongside.
