Italian Breakfast Ideas
In Italian cuisine, breakfast isn’t usually the biggest meal of the day like it is here in the U.S. But that’s just it – we’re not in Italy so why not create some wonderful breakfasts that will not only taste amazing but keep us satisfied as well.
These breakfast recipes range from sweet and savory to hearty and healthy, but all with an Italian theme. Some are my own Italian recipes and some are from my fellow food-enthusiasts that also run and operate their own dedicated food blogs. Get your morning cup of coffee and let’s get started.

Italian Frittata Recipes
Frittatas are the Italian version of American omelets, often served at breakfast time. But frittatas are not folded over and they are typically thinner than omelets. Generally you cook them in a saute pan, or even a cast-iron skillet. Some recipes are known to bake in the oven as well.
You can fill them with different vegetables, or you can have them plain with minimal ingredients. Here are some breakfast ideas that you might enjoy along with some fresh juice!
