Sausage Eggs Potatoes Giambotta

Monday, December 15, 2014
In every Italian household we would have leftovers, and make it for breakfast or another meal for Sunday dinner called Giambotta.

Whisk up some eggs and just about anything you have in the refrigerator goes into the pan.

Meats, potatoes, cheeses, onions and just about anything else your little heart desires.

The sausage peppers and potatoes were our classic favorites.

Remember to use only Authentic Italian crusty bread when making a giambotta sandwich never American bread.

Sausage Eggs Potatoes ( Giambotta)

4 eggs beaten

2 links Italian sausage

1 cubed potato

1 bell or hot peppers sliced

Shredded whole milk mozzarella

Provolone slices

Pancetta, capicola or bacon

olive oil

garlic cloves

Optional additions: hot peppers, cooked Escarole, sliced onions, black sliced olives, sliced plum tomatoes, tree or regular mushrooms.

Italian sub rolls toasted drizzled with olive oil, rubbed with garlic cloves and toasted under a broiler till lightly browned.

Saute the sausage, peppers, potatoes in 3 tablespoons olive oil (with any other items you like).

Pour the eggs over the sauteed mixture in the pan.

We cooked bacon in a separate pan if you're using it.

Add the pancetta or bacon and cook until meat is completed cooked and golden browned to the top of the cooked eggs.

Flip once. Top with shredded cheese.

Add the to one side of the sub roll and add one slice provolone to the other side. Serve hot.

Most of the time you're using leftover meats from previous dinners.


  1. Toss a bunch of stuff in a pan then add eggs - I must have some Italian blood I don't know about.

  2. Love that, Must goes! This is my kind of food and it always works here!

  3. So yet another dish my mother made. Hers were mostly vegetarian (those were the lean years). I like the addition of eggs; she didn't always do that.

  4. When I lived in Utica we would have this all the time at a late night diner on Bleeker Street. On Google maps it looks like it's closed now.
    In North Utica at Trenton Ave and Coventry there's Top of the Morning Cafe and they have a great Giambotte.

    1. That was called T.R .. they made the best giambott.. it’s been closed for many years now

    2. TR's you're right best giambotta ever.

  5. just like what i ate at garry's restaurant on elizabeth avenue 60 years ago. for a kid who grew up in a kosher home this was food porn for sure.

    1. LOL Thanks for the new term, I'll send you a commision each time I use it.

  6. My brother and his wife had me over for breakfast yesterday and made this. It was fantastic! I can't wait to make it myself!
