I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted. Sorry guys.
In apologies, I’m going to give you guys my super simple muffuletta recipe. We’re having it for dinner tonight! I love hot sandwiches! Muffulettas are a Louisiana favorite, full of Italian and creole flavors blended into deliciousness!
As many or all of the following meats
- ham (peppered preferred)
- chicken or turkey (I like the peppered or sun dried tomato one)
- bacon or prosciutto
Cheese of your choice. (I use provolone, mozzarella, and cheddar) You can put as much as you like.
Spicy mustard or honey mustard
Olive mix (sold by the pickles).
And a baking pan
You can use any bread you want. Of course, if you use thick buns you’ll want to add more meat and cheese. Most people stick with heavier breads to pack on more meat. I like simplicity. Tonight we are actually Garlic Parmesan loaf that I had the deli slice for me. They are narrow slices… but that just means I can have more sandwiches! ^_^ But by all mean, you are more than welcomed to use Italian or french loafs or sesame seed buns.
Heat your oven to 375*F.
Butter one side of your bread slice and lay it butter down on the pan. Stack up your meats to the desired amount. (We are not just feeding ourselves We’re gorging! ^_^) On thin sliced bread I usually put just one slice of each meat on the bread, but my husband loves a MEATY muffuletta so I load his up. Put cheese in between every three pieces if you like. Top with olive mix and a bit of mustard. Butter another slice of bread and place on top with the butter side up. If you want you can take some parmesan cheese and sprinkle liberally on top of your sandwich.
Pop that bad boy in the oven until the cheese is nice and melted and the top of your bun is golden brown (or nice and toasty if you used a bun). It usually only takes 10 minutes but just cook it how you want it.
I’ll upload pictures of tonight’s dish tomorrow if you want to check back! :3
