BBA: Casatiello

We baked this bread way out of order, but my husband was so anxious to try it. This is a bread that is loaded with meat and cheese. We discussed our various options of meat and cheese. I wanted bacon, Danny kind of wanted sausage. I wanted provolone Danny wanted cheddar. In the end, we had bacon and cheddar. (a fairly good compromise)

Here you can see all of those yummy pieces of bacon and cheese. We did have a little mishap with the bacon. We wanted the bacon really crisp so that we could crumble it. So as I was cooking I started thinking of other things I needed to do. I figured since we wanted the bacon crispy I could walk away for a second. The problem was I got distracted and ended up completely burning it and we had to start over.

This bread was really tasty! We really like eating a slice as an afternoon snack. Overall, I would give this recipe a 4 out of 5. Why? Because, aside from just eating it I'm not sure what you would do with it. (Doesn't make very good sandwich bread.

  1. It is great to see some of the breads that I will be doing in the future. This one I bet we will love. It's actually probably like a sandwich inside the loaf. :o)
    Great job,
