Tortanò from Naples

 

This is an interesting bread based on the easter bread from Naples called Casatiello. In this form it is known as "Tortanò."

 

It is dough enriched with lard, rolled out and then filled with cooked bacon, boiled eggs, salami, 3 type of cheese and herbs. The whole thing is then left to prove and baked off in the morning. Delcious warm with a drizzle of peppery extra virigin Olive oil.

It's almost a "Full English" in a bread... Yeah right - delicious.
