homemade Udon Carbonara Recipe

Do you like udon noodles? Do you like carbonara? Then why not combine them both in one recipe and make… Udon Carbonara?! You’ll be amazed how delicious it is, I guarantee you this ;-).

No, but seriously, this is one of my favorite fusion dishes to make. It’s super easy, cheap, and it gives a slight Japanese twist to an otherwise Italian dish. Itameshi, you know? 🙂

For those that don’t know what udon is, udon is a thick, flour noodle that has a springy texture to it, usually enjoyed in hot soup, dipped in sauce, or stir fried. For those that don’t know what carbonara is, it’s a sauce that’s made with bacon or ham, cream, and egg yolk.

 

Pictured above is enough to make two servings of this wonderful dish… But the recipe card only displays for one serving. So don’t fret if you think you haven’t put enough cream in the dish– you don’t need a lot of it to be impacted with flavor!

 

Also, I highly recommend putting fresh herbs on this dish. It gives a nice, refreshing flavor to an otherwise rich cream sauce, and it makes the dish pop out!

The last step after everything has been cooked and heated through is to grab your egg yolks and incorporate into the Udon Carbonara. It’ll give the white cream on the noodles a slight yellow tint, but it still comes out beautifully!
