Author Notes: A recipe that I adopted from David Rocco's episode in Calabria, Italy from his series "La Dolce italia". This dish has quickly become a family favorite.cucina di mammina

Serves: 1 to 2 servings


  • spicy hot calabrese dry-cured sausage, sliced thinly (skin removed); approx. 12-15 slices or to taste

In This Recipe


  1. Crack the eggs into a medium bowl, season with salt and pepper to taste and blend lightly with a fork; add a splash of milk; set aside.
  2. In a medium skillet, add the sliced dry sausage and saute lightly until you see the spicy red oils melting a bit. Remove the sausage and place in a bowl; set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, add the eggs and scramble them lightly until just cooked through (cook the eggs to your taste; softer or more well done, if you prefer.)
  4. Remove from the heat and combine the sausage slices with the cooked eggs and gently mix together.
  5. Drizzle a bit of olive oil and serve immediately with toasted rustic bread and a hot cup of espresso.
