How to Make a Muffaletta Sandwich

The first muffaletta sandwich was said to be invented by Signor Lupo Salvadore, who owned the famous Italian Central Grocery at New Orleans. The sandwich remained to be a classic favorite because of the collaboration of rich Italian flavors brought about by the layers of meat and olives.


  • One loaf of muffaletta bread sliced horizontally
  • 1 cup of olive mix/ salad (prepared separately)
  • ¼ lb of sliced ham
  • ¼ lb of sliced mortadella
  • ¼ lb sliced Genoa salami
  • ¼ lb of slices provolone
  • ¼ lb sliced mozzarella


  1. Instead of using the traditional dressing, spread the olive salad over the first half of the bread.
  2. Assemble the sandwich by putting the meats on top of the cheeses.
  3. Finish off the sandwich by putting the other half of the bread on top.
  4. Bind the bread with cling wrap and set it aside for at least an hour to allow the interesting flavors soak the bread.
  5. Once ready, you can cut the sandwich in four before serving.

Note: This Muffaletta recipe will yield servings that are good for at least 2 to 3 people.
