Italians don’t eat eggs for breakfast as a rule, but do enjoy them as a quickly cooked second course at lunch.
Though the frittata is perhaps the most common way to prepare eggs in Italy, there are other options, including sunny side up on a bed of stewed tomatoes. Quite tasty, and a wonderful foil for crusty bread!
This one-pan dish is great for any meal of the day!
