I wasn't sure what to expect, since I've never eaten a muffuletta before, but this was really good! I made the olive salad (plus the anchovy, of course -- love 'em!), and I used big sandwich rolls instead of a whole loaf. Loved all the flavors in this! Thanks for posting! Made for The Hot Pink Panthers for ZWT9
I enjoyed this sandwich, before it went out of business, at a place called Dominic's in Shreveport, La. It was my favorite sandwich ever!! I would eat there every time I visited the area and was heartbroken when I learned it went out of business. This recipe is so close to the taste that I loved about the restaraunt muffuletta. I didn't add anchovies, only because I forgot to buy them. Next time I will add them. I made extra olive salad to have on hand. Thank you PanNan for posting this delicious recipe!!
We used ham and hard salami for the meats and made the olive salad following the recipe except we left out that darn fishy thing (personal preference). What an awesome sandwich we had! I used whole wheat sub rolls of course!
My husband & I just returned from New Orleans & Of course I had to have a muffuletta!! I bought some olive salad from a market and used that.I had also bought some lg Kaiser rolls (unless you are serving more that 1 person the Kaiser rolls work well cuz the Italian loaf makes "alot")and the sandwich was the perfect size for just one. I layered mine with mortadella, capicola, Genoa salami & the provolone. I did use your suggestion of brushing with the oil and toasting lightly.I felt like I was back in the Big Easy...YUMMY!!!!!
Wonderful! I used french bread turkey ham/salami. I'm actually going to make a batch of the olive salad to have around the kitchen. Definately going to make this again.
I made this for *Zaar World Tour III* - I had to change this quite a bit to suit my dietary requirements and what I had at home. I used turkey breast because I don't eat salami or ham and I used a cheese bun instead of Italian bread. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly oh except I didn't have giardiniera so I used pickled zucchini. This was delicious and I will be making this again. Thank you PanNan
Oh I loved this!!!! I used Ciabatta bread, cuz I couldn't find round Italian. I also added some roasted red bell peppers and used olive oil to drizzle on the bread. MMMMMMM!!!
The Muffuletta is my favourite beach sandwich and that's what I made PanNan's version for...going to the beach. Her version is delectable. I did UP the anchovies to - oh, 6 fillets - we love them.LOL Everything is right about this sandwich. The coldcuts and cheese blend and contrast beautifully with the olive salad mixture. Just be sure to use a very sturdy, crusty bread because it can get soggy otherwise.
i love these things i found a recipe for the bread but not the olives thanks for posting dee
