A few years ago, a friend of mine made me carbonara for dinner, and I was shocked at how much flavor and texture it had. When I saw this recipe online, I knew I had to make it! It turned out to be just as flavorful and the onions gave it a very sweet taste. I'd highly recommend giving it a try!
Bacon Beer Carbonara-adapted from The Family Kitchen
Total Time: 20 Minutes
- 1 large sweet onion, chopped
- 8 ounces bacon, chopped
- 3 eggs, plus 2 egg yolks
- 1 cup dark beer
- 1 cup parmesan cheese
- 1 pound spaghetti
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 green onion, chopped
Cook bacon in large skillet over medium heat about 10 minutes. Add onions and continue cooking until bacon is crispy, and onions are tender.
While bacon is cooking, cook spaghetti according to package directions. Once bacon has finished cooking, add beer. Bring to a boil and then let simmer.
Add eggs to a bowl and whisk. Temper the eggs by adding a little bit of the hot beer mixture at a time, continually whisking until all the beer and bacon mixture has been added. Combine with the pasta, green onion and parmesan and toss to coat.
