Carbonara Wings

Carbonara Wings

Making carbonara is one of the coolest tricks in the kitchen. Start with raw eggs, toss with hot pasta, boom a sauce is formed. I tried to come up with some ideas on what other food I could toss with a raw eggs and of all my ideas I kept coming back to wings. I first tossed the wings in the hot bacon fat and then added the egg and parm mixture and it really clung to the wings and formed a great sauce.


I marinated the wings in a little worcestershire sauce, some vinegar, and salt. Before cooking I lightly dried them and tossed them with baking powder and corn starch.

They come out of the oven nice and crispy.

I cooked some bacon in the pan, strained out the excess fat, and then added the wings. After tossing for a few minutes, I turned off the heat and added the egg and parm mixture.

Top with lots of black pepper!
