What are carbonara muffins?
Of course, the muffins taste of the Italian classic, spaghetti carbonara, where soft pasta meets crispy bacon, umami-laden Parmesan, and creamy egg yolk. But Laura turns the old standby on its head by doing something no one expected: baking it in muffin tins. The adorable and flavor-packed muffins will delight your guests, surprise your colleagues, and satisfy your own cravings.
Why do we love this recipe?
We love this recipe because it’s a failsafe crowd-pleaser with wow-factor.

Young and old will love these versatile muffins that can be enjoyed hot or cold and packed in lunch boxes as a next-day treat.
Our tips for making carbonara muffins
We recommend filling the muffin cups above the rim to create prettier and more substantial muffins. And if you’re a fellow cheese-lover like us, go ahead and sprinkle a bit extra cheese on top—we won’t tell.
