Bacon & Beer Alfredo Sauce

Bacon & Beer Alfredo Sauce – Kellis Kitchen

I love this sauce. It tastes wonderfully rich and complex when lightly covering ravioli. It even tastes good with a spoon! Bacon and Beer are not generally associated with alfredo but once you try it, you will not want any other kind. I cannot remember where I got the recipe but it was so long ago it was written down instead of being in a computer document so it is at least 20 years old. Try it and let me know what you think.


1 Cup of heavy cream
1 eight ounce bottle of beer
1 ½ Cup grated parmesan cheese (freshly grated works best)
¼ Cup butter
¼ Cup freshly chopped parsley
8 ounces bacon, cut into ½ inch pieces – I always used Farmland Foods Bacon!

Fry bacon pieces then let bacon drain on paper towels.

Pour out grease from pan but using the same pan pour in beer and allow to cook over medium high heat for 5 minutes.

Pour in heavy cream and cook for another 5 minutes while stirring occasionally until thickened.

Fold in bacon and use with ravioli or spaghetti noodles or whatever you generally cook to use with alfredo sauce!

      I love cooking with beer and it doesn’t have a Beer-y taste. Probably because you cook it for 5 minutes before you add anything. Thanks!

    I cannot wait to eat this. YUM! It has everything I love!

    I’m sure the alcohol cooks out enough that I could even have it now 😉

      Oh yes – it cooks completely out so don’t worry. But if you do – then just use chicken stock instead!

    I have bacon cooking in the oven now and I was going to make a healthy spinach salad. Probably still will but this is on my to do list for sure! What a great idea, Kelli. I would never have thought of this!

      You will love it and the Beer will cook out so you don’t taste it but will give another layer of flavor!
