Carmela Soprano's Prosciutto Bread and Anna Sultana's Sausage Bread, Maltese Style

Hard to believe, but, according to Entertaining with The Sopranos, Carmela bakes bread - Prosciutto Bread.  

Don't worry.  She doesn't stick those long nails into the dough.  Sheesh!!  Can you imagine trying to get all the sticky goop out of those nails.  

Carmela uses a food processor to make her Prosciutto Bread.  She cuts up prosciutto and soppressata - 4 ounces each - and 2 ounces sharp provolone and scatters them over the bread dough before forming it into a loaf and baking it.


You don't have to run out and buy a machine to make bread.  Here's an easy meat bread recipe.

You can use different ground meats, even fake if you're worried about cholesterol.  Just add some spices, like garlic powder and oregano.
  
Yes, it is 12 tablespoons oil!
