Description

Renditions of this savory Neapolitan Easter bread abound, so feel free to adapt it to suit your tastes. Set apart by other celebratory thanks to the eggs found embedded on its top, casatiello is typically filled with an assortment of cured pork and cheeses before it's and baked until golden brown. Then, it's as an antipasto for Easter dinner, although the picnic-friendly leftovers arguably taste best the next day.
