Cooking With The Crew: Nunnie's Italian Breakfast Recipe

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- KDKA's CBSN Pittsburgh Line Producer Connor Hamilton shares her beloved grandma's breakfast recipe!

A note from Connor: It has been our family tradition in several generations to make it and eat on Easter Sunday, but we make it throughout the year! At least two generations before my Nunnie as well, but while it didn't start with her - she's the reason I make it today!
