tortano

savoury bread with cheese and salami

A typical Neapolitan Easter speciality, this is a dense, yeasty lardy bread packed full of various cheeses, salami, ciccioli, pepper, and optional hard boiled eggs. Elizabeth Minchilli has a recipe.

Also see casatiello, which is similar, but topped with hard boiled eggs.
