    Hi, if anyone has any good ideas I'm all ears. An italian restraunt owner asked me to send him a menu because they are expanding to breakfast. Yall might be able to help me get a job there! So far I have a few good ideas for breakfast skillets, sandwiches, omelets, and crepes. Any good ideas?

    Do you want an Italian menu or an Italian inspired menu? And from which part of Italy do your future employer come from?

    And where are you located? what crowd will you be cooking for?

    I think there's not much in authentic italian breakfast. so I'm thinking more like italian inspired versions of American breakfast foods.

    Well that makes it easier :)

    So it's in valencia :) Italian restaurant in Spain with Italian inspired American breakfast :)

    Italian breakfast is usually pretty light compared to a lot of other countries. But if it's Italian inspired you can pretty much do what you want.


    Think good sausage, ham, eggs, fruits.
    You might want to consider some specialities from toscana. They have sausages mushrooms olives pecorino cheese truffle polenta.

    You could make omelettes with spicy sausage and mushrooms.
    And polenta. fried with cheese ham and spinach.
    Sandwich with grilled vegetables and mozzarella. I'm pretty much just listing things I could eat now so I'll let you do the thinking.
    Oh and no breakfast without cake and espresso.
