Tag: Casatiello



Casatiello is a Brioche inspired bread.  The brioche-like dough is flavored with a cured meat (in this case Soppresetta) and a soft meltable cheese (Provolone with a bit of mozzarella).  Definitely a meal in a slice. 

A very rich bread (with a bunch of butter mixed in the dough), there was no real danger of finishing off both loaves the same day.  This bread could have been shaped in a variety of ways, from roll size (in brioche tins or small lunch bags), to single round, or what I ended up doing…a regular bread pan.
