Breakfast Carbonara

What you need


  • 4 egg yolks
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup double cream
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Black pepper
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 6 rashers streaky bacon, cut into 1/2 cm strips
  • 6 sausages, fillings squeezed out of cases and ripped into chunks
  • 4 mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 6 cherry tomatoes
  • A good handful of spaghetti or linguine - enough for two!



  1. Whisk together egg yolks, eggs, double cream, parmesan, salt and pepper and set the carbonara sauce aside. Start cooking your pasta to packet instructions - make sure it's al dente though!
  2. In a large frying pan fry the bacon strips until they are sizzling away nicely, then sausage pieces. Allow to colour and crisp up a little then stir in the mushrooms and finely the cherry tomatoes. Allow these to fry for a little bit, until slightly softened, then take off the heat.
  3. Pour over the cooked, drained pasta and mix everything together. Top with chopped parsley and serve.
