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
- Instead of using the traditional dressing, spread the olive salad over the first half of the bread.
- Assemble the sandwich by putting the meats on top of the cheeses.
- Finish off the sandwich by putting the other half of the bread on top.
- Bind the bread with cling wrap and set it aside for at least an hour to allow the interesting flavors soak the bread.
- 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.
