    Treewoman's Note:

    A favorite in the Big Easy, this is better than any I've had at restaurants in New Orleans. Instead of the traditional Mortadella (which is just a fancy balogna) I use pepperoni. I use Boscoli Olive Salad, so it saves a ton of time on prepping. It is available in some international markets, and I believe you can order it online. The traditional Muffaletta is served on a round loaf, but any shape will do as long as it is tasty and has a nice crust. Surprisingly, this freezes very well; I have frozen individual serving sizes and eaten it 6 weeks later and it tasted just as good as when fresh!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 16 ounces olive salad (I use Boscoli's)
    • 1 lb loaf Italian bread
    • 4 ounces genoa salami, thinly sliced
    • 4 ounces cooked ham, thinly sliced
    • 4 ounces mozzarella cheese, sliced
    • 4 ounces provolone cheese, sliced
    • 4 ounces pepperoni, thinly sliced


    1. 1
      At least a day before serving- Cut bread in half horizontally; hollow out some of the excess bread to make room for the filling. Spread each piece of bread with equal amounts of the olive salad, including oil.
    2. 2
      Top the bottom half (over the olive salad) with layers of the meats and cheeses in any order. I like to layer a meat, then a cheese.
    3. 3
      Put the two halves together and wrap tightly. Refrigerate for several hours or preferably overnight; this allows the flavors to mingle and the olive salad to soak into the bread. I turn the loaf over several times while in fridge so the oil evenly soaks both top and bottom of sandwich.
    4. 4
      To serve- cut into serving sizes; this sandwich is so fat you may need to put toothpicks in it to hold it together! It is extremely filling; a little bit goes a long way. Easily serves 8-10 hungry people.
