A recipe for Breakfast Pasta. Breakfast Pasta recipe. I don’t know what it is about breakfast, but I love it. Well, let me rephrase that. I love breakfast foods. I actually don’t have a very big appetite in the morning, but I love breakfast foods in general and can really eat it anytime of the day. There’s something so comforting about pancakes, waffles, bacon (duh), eggs, pastries, fruit and yogurt, oatmeal (well not really, I hate oatmeal…sorry, I know a lot of you are probably disgusted with me right now and I apologize…but the stuff’s like glue to me…I’ll take warm buttered grits over oatmeal any day).

This dish came about because I was craving  both breakfast and pasta one night. I know, totally a lame story, but it’s the truth; plain and simple. It’s a great comfort food dish and is really hearty and filling. You could easily swap the bacon out for crumbled breakfast sausage if that’s your preference OR just add both to the pasta, which is my personal preference! You should probably make this dish for someone, because it’s tasty and it’ll make them happy. Okay, that’s all. Enjoy!

Serves 4 to 6

1 lb linguine
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
½ lb baby new potatoes, quartered
1 medium yellow onion, diced

½ green bell pepper, diced
1 tablespoons fresh thyme, minced
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
4 eggs plus 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
2/3 cup cheddar cheese, grated
½ lb bacon, cooked and crumbled

    LOOK AT THOSE PASTA SWIRLS! Growing up my favorite dish my mom made me was spaghetti with eggs. Spaghetti, a beaten egg poured in and tons of black pepper. Til this day it’s the thing I make when I’m in a rush and starving.

    I didn’t think that I was hungry until this moment. Call me Will Ferrell, but does a little maple syrup and cayenne pepper sound like a lunatic addition? Maybe that’s just my period talking.

    Can one die from ingesting their computer screen? Thanks for the tummy porn this morning!

    This looks fantastic! And I heartily vote for breakfast at supper time! I too, am not a big breakfast meal eater…although something magic happens when I am traveling and go out to breakfast (never before 10:30am), then I can eat the delish offerings. Thanks for this yum combo!

  14. Emily Not Specified Not Specified

    This looks awesome! Breakfast food is also my favorite, any time of day. So much so that when we don’t have other ideas for dinner, my husband’s suggestion is always, “Eggs and Toast?” I think I will try making this for him some night soon. Also, LOVE the picture! What beautiful swirls of pasta!

    I like the idea, but think that the potatoes are not necessary. If you’re gonna do breakfast pasta, you don’t really need to add the spuds for carbs. I love breakfast for dinner and vice versa. Think I’ll try this…though the husband doesn’t sound sold on the idea….we’ll see…

  23. Sandie Not Specified Not Specified

    Oh, how fantastic! I can’t wait to try it tomorrow. Everyone in the house will be excited when I serve it tomorrow. I love to start their day out with a smile and this recipe will surely do it! Thank you!

    What can be alternative of cheese and bacon for this recipe? My doctor advised me to avoid those. Thank you.
