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.

Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Colander
  • 1 Medium Pot
  • 1 Medium Oven-Safe Pan
  • 1 Mixing Bowl

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients and Cook Spaghetti

    Prepare the Ingredients and Cook Spaghetti

    Halve grape tomatoes. Cut bacon into ¾" pieces. Add spaghetti to boiling water and cook 7 minutes. Drain in colander. Spaghetti will finish cooking in a later step.

  • Step 2 - Render the Bacon

    Render the Bacon

    While spaghetti cooks, line a plate with a paper towel and heat ½ 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.

  • Step 3 - Prepare the Frittata Mixture

    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), ½ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper together in a medium mixing bowl.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Frittata

    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.

  • Step 5 - Make the Vinaigrette

    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.

  • Step 6 - Plate the Dish

    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.
