italian sausage or pepperoni bread

Hi,

I tried looking this up on the board but I haven't seen it yet. As the holidays approach, I usually like to bring a good italian cheese with sausage or pepperoni bread to my parents. Does anyone know of an italian deli within Manhattan that has a good Italian meat bread?

Thanks!

      Its different - Its more just like a loaf of italian bread stuffed with meat and cheese. It is similar but its definitely not referred to as a stromboli...

    2. Parisi Bakery on Mott Street sells prosciutto bread. To my taste, not as good as some in Bronx/Brooklyn, but a favorite of many.

        Russo's on 11th St. also sells prosciutto bread, though they don't always have it.

          Faicco's sells Parisi breads, including their prosciutto bread. I like Parisi's Italian and semolina breads, but I prefer Faicco's homemade prosciutto bread; it's more "bready".

          I enjoyed a broccoli rabe and sausage "loaf" that I bought at Faicco's this past weekend. It wasn't really a loaf, though, more like a thin layer of bread surrounding about an inch of broccoli rabe with sausage pieces on the bottom.

        2. Thanks for the responses everyone. If anyone else has any new suggestions, I'd still like to hear them.

          Happy Holidays!

            Speaking of broccoli rabe, a light meal of the greens steamed and dressed with good oil, garlic and red pepper, some really fresh ricotta, that prosciutto bread, that aged provolone, and maybe a good pickled pepper or 2 and some sliced fennel with a chilled light red wine. Back in the Brooklyn day, it was always called lard (or lard and pepper bread), a way to use ends of salumi, along with fried pork bits, skin/fat (ciccioli). Can last a long tine, but not usually in my house.

          2. I love Parisi's proscuitto bread (aka lard bread), as noted also carried at Faicco...chock full of the good stuff and just the right amount of oil. Get a nice chunk of aged provolone (Murray's is a couple of doors east of Faicco) to go with it and you will be welcome anywhere! NB: Call either place ahead of time to make sure they will have them.

              The prosciutto bread at Faicco's is delicious. And City Kid got the right idea, go to Murray's a few steps away from Faicco's

            2. Alleva Dairy also carries a porsciutto bread. Not sure if it's the same as Faicco's, which would have been my other suggestion, but Alleva's comes in different sizes, and styles depending on when you drop by.

                I love Alleva but their proscuitto bread is not my favorite. More bread with a bit of proscuitto -- which is some people's preference. I like mine with real chunks and a bit more oil, as with the Parisi version, sold at Parisi and Faicco.

                1. re: City Kid

                  Alleva also had a bread with slabs of porsciutto rolled into it, almost like a stromboli.

                  1. re: sugartoof

                    I've had the stromboli at Alleva, several varieties, they're all very good, with lots of innards!
