The delicious "pane cunzato"

di Antonella

When I say "pane cunzato" I remember my beloved Sicily, our warm sun, our beaches, the many nature reserves overlooking the sea.

The pane cunzato is a traditional sicilian sandwich.

You to taste it once in your life, better if you are in Sicily, by the sea

Pane cunzato

The Pane Cunzato is a recipe from many years ago

Like most of typical Sicilian dishes, it was prepared by poor sicilian people.

In those days in place of a complete meal, this bread was usually seasoned with products that were easy to find and, above all, low cost.

A piece of cheese and a tomato, however, could always be found because they were often produced at home.

The luckiest ones added the oil of a sardine so as to enjoy the aroma and the salty scent.

To give an extra perfume, they used the oregano they had at home.

Once the sandwich was stuffed, they heated it in the ovens, then added some olive oil.

The recipe of the pane cunzato has not changed over time and has remained the same and it is the same that you will find at the Hotel Piccolo Mondo in San Vito Lo Capo for breakfast so as to start your day at the beach with a large dose of energy!
