Uovo sbattuto (Italian for 'beaten egg'), also known as resumada or rusumada in Lombardy, is a common Italian breakfast item dating back to rustic times.[clarification needed] Similar to zabaione, uovo sbattuto consists of egg yolk and sugar, ingredients readily available in most villages and farms.
In olden times it was considered an easy way to consume a quick and economical breakfast. Often espresso and milk can be added to make "l'uovo sbattuto con caffè". This is usually eaten with crusty or toasted bread. When made for children, caffè d'orzo (a caffeine-free grain drink) can be substituted for the espresso.
