Not a common item in the Italian diet, but:

uovo in camicia: poached egg

würstel in camicia: sausage roll

gamberoni in camicia: prawn wrapped in pancetta

triglie in camicia: red mullet wrapped in leek leaves

pesche in camicia: peaches stuffed with raisins and almonds and baked in millefeuille pastry.

petti di pollo in camicia: like many other things in camicia, wrapped in ham and cheese.
