Gnocchi For Breakfast
For a delicious spin in a classic morning skillet, we’ve replaced the traditional potatoes with Olivieri® Fresh Cheddar Bacon Skillet Gnocchi. Made from quality ingredients and filled to perfection with Cheddar cheese and bacon, these fresh gnocchi are sautéed for a crisp outside and tender soft inside.
While you may be accustomed to enjoying the classic variety for lunch or dinner, it’s a little known fact that gnocchi can be great for many meal or snack options. Just try these sweet Churro-Style Gnocchi Bites coated with cinnamon and sugar to find out what we mean.
At Olivieri®, we have all kinds of gnocchi recipes.

Portioned perfectly for two, this recipe can also be increased by simply doubling the ingredient amounts. Serve alongside a bowl of fresh fruit, orange juice and a cup of coffee.
For extra cheesy taste, sprinkle a bit of shredded Cheddar, Gruyere, or other cheese of choice on top.
