Italian Breakfast Food to Eat at Home

April 21, 2020
You never really think of Italian food for breakfast, do you? Because this cuisine is so rich and flavourful, they can often taste too much for your first meal of the day. The best types of meals for breakfast are the ones that are just right, will give you energy, but at the same time, won't overwhelm your taste buds. And Italian food doesn't necessarily fit those criteria, does it? Well, actually, some do! There are still some Italian dishes—or at least, Italian twists to classic dishes—that are perfect for the most important meal of the day. Here are some to make at home!

Brioche

While the French have the croissant, the Italians have the brioche. Though, ironically, the latter also comes from French cuisine. However, Italians have embraced and devoured the brioche as their go-to breakfast treat that it's practically part of Italian cuisine now. The light and airy pastry, soft and slightly sweet but not overly so, makes for a great snack to start the day with. You can smack some butter and jam onto it while you pair it with a nice foamy cappuccino. Now that's a quintessential Italian breakfast if there ever was one!

Eggs Florentine

You may have heard of Eggs Benedict (which is more attributed to the US than anywhere else), but did you know that the Italians had their own version of it? Introducing the Eggs Florentine. It's a slightly healthier version of the American classic because it contains one important ingredient: spinach! The muscle-building vegetable is sprinkled unto the egg while you cook it, helping spread its vitamins and nutrients all over the delicious dish. Now, slap it onto a nice thick slice of toast or even over some savoury pesto pasta and you ahve yourself a culinary goldmine!

Tomato Quiche

Since Italy has always been the home of many Jewish communities, their classic quiche dish has become a mainstay within the Mediterranean country's beloved cuisine. So much so that many Italians eat it for breakfast. However, as per usual, they bring in their own twist to it to make it more Italian. Their version is the tomato quiche, highlighting the juicy vegetable that's best grown in Italy. The sumptuous tomato adds anew dimension of taste within the classic dish, making it a go-to choice for early in the morning. It doesn't hurt that it's also an easy recipe to do.

Tomato Asparagus Frittata

Speaking of the tomato, the vegetable also appears in another Italian breakfast favourite: tomato asparagus frittatas.  The frittata is as Italian as you can get. Apart from the pizza and pasta, it's the third most popular savoury dish to ever come out of Italy. But for breakfast, the inclusion of tomatoes and asparagus make for both a healthier and more flavourful version. The melodious mix of tastes will tingle your taste buds, waking you up instantly from your morning blues. Fortunately, all the ingredients in this dish are easy to get and it's simple enough to make for an early snack!

Panino

In terms of Italian snack, it's hard to find one that's more popular than the panino. It's a seemingly simple sandwich, the only difference being tha the meat and sauces you use here are distinctly Italian. Furthermore, it's more common to grill them than other types of sandwiches originating from other countries. With that said, it's no surprise that Italians enjoy snacking on this classic treat for breakfast. It's an easy dish that will fulfil all sorts of cravings during the morning. But, it's also light enough that you don't start the morning feeling too bloated. It's just right!

Biscotti and Espresso

Finally, why not start your morning sweetly? Sure, Italian cuisine is most favoured for its highly rich savoury dishes. But their sweet treats deserve some recognitions. Not the least of which for early in the morning too. However, you don't exactly start your day with a cup of gelato or a slice of tiramisu. So what dessert is best for breakfast? A biscotti! Naturally, the cookie that's practically made to be enjoyed with a cup of coffee is one of the best options for breakfast. It's such a natural choice that it might not seem all that much, but choosing it makes all the difference!
