Lucini Italia Co. is dedicated to sharing our love for authentic, great-tasting food through delicious recipes inspired by the culinary traditions of Italy. When it comes to breakfast, eggs are a staple full of protein and other beneficial nutrients, and EVOO is a staple ingredient in many dishes. Paired with fine ingredients like infused extra virgin olive oil, breakfast or brunch can be turned into an elegant event, even if you’re heading out the door. We love this recipe for savory sunny side up eggs.
