Okay, so make a different recipe then. Or use less bacon than it calls for. Or replace it with something else. Or buy bacon when it is on sale? At your quoted price, the bacon for this recipe would cost $2. If you could find it on sale, you could probably get it for around $1.25.
This recipe isn’t even being advertised as “Budget Carbonara”. It was mentioned as an afterthought at the end of the little intro blurb that it could be made for cheap. If you don’t feel like “splurging” on a dollar’s worth of bacon, you can continue to enjoy your boston butt and ramen without complaining about what truly qualifies as a budget recipe. Especially when the only “expensive” thing is barely over a quarter pound of bacon…..
