Step 1

Put water and the stock cube to boil in a saucepan. Chop the onions.

Step 2

Put the two packets of smoked lardons and onions in a frying pan. Cook until the lardons are grilled and your onions are nicely browned. Keep the bacon fat in the pan (it does not matter if there is a lot).

Step 3

When the water has boiled in the saucepan, add the spaghetti. Leave to cook for 7 minutes. Drain. Keep warm.

Step 4

Add the white wine to the lardons and onions.

Step 5

Add your pot of double cream in the preparation. Mix well.

Step 6

Stir in the grated cheese to your liking. Do not put too much because you will use it also for decorating the dish. Season with herbs, pepper. Beware of salt, taste first as generally, there is not need.

Step 7

Place the spaghetti on each plate in a swirl shape. In the middle, add the sauce, creating a small dome. Feel free to add quite a lot. Sprinkle with cheese. Put the egg yolk on top of the sauce (in the middle, on the sauce).
