Spaghetti with Bacon, Pecorino, and Fried Egg

Serves 4

Recipe by Rebekah Peppler

INGREDIENTS

1 lb spaghetti

1 lb thick cut smoked bacon

ยฝ cup grated pecorino

4 eggs

kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

PREPARATION

Cook spaghetti according to package directions, until al dente. Drain through a colander, reserving about a cup of the pasta water.

In a large skillet over medium heat, fry half of the bacon until crisp, about 3 minutes on each side. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate, leaving the fat in the skillet, and repeat with the remaining bacon. Pour half of the bacon fat out of the pan and reserve it.

Add the cooked spaghetti to the skillet with the remaining bacon fat, sprinkle with pecorino and add about ยผ cup of the reserved pasta water. Toss to coat, and crumble the cooked bacon into the pasta. Transfer pasta to serving bowls, and wipe out the skillet.

Add the reserved bacon fat to the skillet, and fry 4 eggs (2 at a time) over medium heat, cooking until whites are set but yolks are runny. Serve one egg on top of each bowl of pasta.

For this recipe, you'll need a 12-inch skillet and a large pot to cook the pasta.

You can get a great skillet here (pictured left, worth the price, will last forever) or a more affordable decent one here. Any stock pot that's at least 8 quarts will work, but a 12-quart pot (pictured right) is your best bet. Get a simple one here.
