The Eggy Topping People Can't Believe This TikToker Uses On Spaghetti Bolognese

When TikTok handle, @Nurse_Emma posted her strange spaghetti Bolognese topping inspiration onto the platform, she didn't know it was strange. "I haven't seen anyone else do this, so I thought I would finally get an answer and see if anyone else does it," she says in her newly-gone-viral TikTok post. Viewers of the strange topping are dazed and confused. "I can never unsee this," wrote one. "This is strange but genius," wrote another. "I'm sure this is illegal," wrote a third. "If it's not, it should be."

How would you react after watching someone grate a hard-boiled egg on top of their spaghetti Bolognese? No, really, @Nurse_Emma grates an entire hard-boiled egg on top of her spaghetti Bolognese before eating it. If you haven't watched her do so, please do because it's fascinating to watch. In a follow-up video, @Nurse_Emma reveals she puts grated cheese on top of it, too. "Mozzarella, anything," she explains. We'd go parmesan, but then, something is something, right? 

Can grated egg on spaghetti Bolognese possibly taste good?

A grated hard-boiled egg on top of spaghetti Bolognese was "completely a done thing" in @Nurse_Emma's family. In fact, her "dad basically brought me up with this" (via TikTok). "I could never imagine eating spaghetti Bolognese without it," the TikTok user affirmed. Bold words. In yet a third video, @Nurse_Emma is shocked to find that even the Daily Mail had covered her .... err, unusual? ... recipe. To reiterate, we highly recommend the series of TikTok videos for maximum entertainment.

We did. Subsequently, we spent time researching the unusual culinary phenomenon. It turns out that grated egg on top of Bolognese sauce is not all as scandalous as we wanted it to be. The Australian website Delicious, for example, advertises a recipe for a spaghetti Bolognese frittata. Taste will try to convince you that baked eggs in leftover spaghetti Bolognese is a good idea. And one of @Nurse_Emma's TikTok viewers wrote, "I do crushed eggs in lasagna, and I'm Italian" (via TikTok). Don't knock it until you've tried it.
