Ingredients

  • 6 slices thick cut bacon chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced or grated
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms sliced
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 16 ounces frozen chopped spinach thawed
  • 12 ounces marinated artichokes hearts drained
  • 1 pound angle hair pasta
  • 8 ounces fontina cheese half diced, half shredded (or more!)
  • 6-8 eggs
  • 2-3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • lots of chopped parsley for garnish

Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and prepare according to directions. Drain and set aside. Preheat the oven to 374 degrees F.
  • Heat a large skillet (mine was 12 inches) over medium-high heat and cook bacon until crispy. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Remove all but one tablespoon of bacon fat from the pan, then add the olive oil and heat over high heat. Add garlic and saute for 30 seconds. Add the mushrooms in a single layer. Don't stir them! Let them sizzle until they have caramelized on the bottom, about 2 minutes. When the bottoms are caramelized, toss them once and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the dill, oregano, crushed red pepper and pepper. Stir in the thawed spinach and artichokes and gently stir everything to combine. Cook another 2-3 minutes until heated through.
  • Add half of the pasta, the cubes of fontina and a drizzle of olive oil, toss well, adding in more pasta if desired. Create small wells for the eggs and carefully crack the eggs into the wells. Sprinkle the eggs with salt and pepper and then add the remaining shredded cheese. Drizzle the cream over the eggs. Place the whole skillet in the oven and bake until the whites are just set but yolks are still runny, about 15 to 18 minutes. If you want to brown the cheese a bit more turn the broiler on for 30 seconds, but the eggs will probably not be runny anymore. Remove from the oven and add the crispy bacon. Garnish with chopped parsley. EAT!
