Carbonara Sauce

Here is the fourth sauce. I always thought that carbonara was a tomato based sauce. It is in fact slices of bacon in a egg-based sauce. Anything involving bacon tastes really good, try this one out!

Serves 4-6
Preparation Time: 5 mins
Cooking Time: 10 mins
Printable Recipe


8-10 slices bacon, cubed
1 1/4 cup half-and-half cream (15%)
3 eggs
1/4 cup grated parmesan
Pepper to taste


1. Heat skillet over medium heat. Cook bacon until soft and slightly brown.

2. Add in cream and eggs and stir until smooth and thick.

3. Incorporate parmesan and stir until it melts. Season with pepper to taste. Serve.


  1. Aaaah, love carbonara! Bacon works well, but sometimes I use pancetta - or both, lol!

  2. I love pancetta too. My next attempt is to do the traditional way of making carbonara: coat raw eggs with cooked pasta.
