Linguine in Cream Sauce with Poached Eggs and Bacon
The weather has been so hot last week that I’ve been sweating over the hot stove when preparing our meal. To stay away from the kitchen, I’ve made mostly quick and simple meal like the Salmon Fried Rice , Fried Noodles and when I saw this easy recipe Linguine in Cream Sauce with Poached Eggs & Bacon in a cookbook and just had to make it.
Here is the recipe ~ serves 2
2 strips smoked bacon
2 Eggs (I used large eggs)
1/2 cup Milk
1/2 cup Whipping cream
1/2 tsp salt or to taste
Dash of black pepper
- Cut each strip of bacon into halves. Peel and chop onion.
- Cook the linguine in lightly salted water with a touch of oil according to the instruction on the package. Drain and set aside.
- Poach eggs in water ~ Boil about 1 litre of water add 1/2 tsp of white vinegar and stir well with a spoon. Put the eggs in and cover the lid. Do not stir right away. Let it sit for about 4 minutes and gently scoop it out with a ladle.
- Fry the bacon until crispy. Drain and set aside. Stir fry the onion in the same pan. Add Cream and milk and let it simmer for a while then add salt and ground black pepper to taste.
- Toss the linguine into the sauce and serve.
- Top with bacon and poached egg.

Biren, I like Gyudon with kimchi and tamago, looks so comforting 🙂
Cherry Potato: 对呀。。喜欢什么，就随意加 ;D
Angel, I got this answer from the website: Vinegar helps the egg to hold its shape by causing the outer layer of the egg white to congeal faster. Without it, the eggs will become skeins of protein tangling up in the water.
Normally I just let the boiling water to settle down before pouring onto the eggs, cover lid and wait for 4 mins and I follow the recipe this time, it still works.
Thanks Tes 🙂
ann, i could FINALLY leave my comment. i've been trying to leave comment but it always ended up "hanging" . . anyways, the linguine look so delicious and homey! (: (:

Jean, in fact I love pasta and noodles more than rice.Just serve me one of these I'm happy 🙂
Hi Alina, if I take this for breakfast I'll skip my lunch ;DD
Ellena, the scorching hot weather makes feel tired when comes to cooking.
Oh, the poached egg is a great touch. Hmm I just got hungry looking at the pictures.
The poached egg looks simple, but not easy to make… well done Ann (I tried once but fail 🙁 )
Mmm.. love the poach eggs! 😀
This looks delicious, Ann! We are on the same page. I made soft cooked eggs too and it was yummy. Have not had it for a while.
Though I m not a cream base person this combination looks appealing to me.
May I know the reason of adding vinegar to the water when cooking poached egg?
yummylicious…makes me craving for some creamy pasta now!!
Love the poached egg 🙂 This is a simple and easy meal and I cook this very often when I'm bored eating outside food.
Looks so yummy with the poached egg.
Reminds me of carbonara that uses the egg as a sauce. Love this simple dish.
mmmmm it looks so good. I'd love this pasta for lunch! So simple and tasty.
What a comforting dish! The egg looks so amazing 🙂 I love that the entire dish look so simple to make but sounds so flavourful 🙂
I definitely can just have the "yolk' sauce with the pasta. Hee hee…no need the cream.
Love this! One of my favourite kind of pasta!
Oh yum! The salty bacon, plus egg yolk and the cream over the silky pasta, super! How simple yet delicious can you get? Pass a a fork please….I'm ready to eat!
