Real N'awlins Muffuletta image

These gigantic sandwiches were invented a century ago at Sicilian Deli here in New Orleans. The spicy, tangy olive salad is what really sets this meat and cheese sandwich apart. A genuine muffuletta should be made on oven-fresh Italian bread topped with sesame seeds. Be sure and use the highest-quality ingredients available; it really makes a difference! Since you're going to all the trouble of making the olive salad, consider doubling the recipe so you'll have some extra waiting around for when you get another muffuletta craving -- it keeps for at least a month! Note: Use round bread loaves for real muffuletta.

Time P1DT40m

Yield 8

Number Of Ingredients 22

1 cup pimento-stuffed green olives, crushed
½ cup drained kalamata olives, crushed
2 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup roughly chopped pickled cauliflower florets
2 tablespoons drained capers
1 tablespoon chopped celery
1 tablespoon chopped carrot
½ cup pepperoncini, drained
¼ cup marinated cocktail onions
½ teaspoon celery seed
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
¾ teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ cup red wine vinegar
½ cup olive oil
¼ cup canola oil
2 (1 pound) loaves Italian bread
8 ounces thinly sliced Genoa salami
8 ounces thinly sliced cooked ham
8 ounces sliced mortadella
8 ounces sliced mozzarella cheese
8 ounces sliced provolone cheese


  • To Make Olive Salad: In a medium bowl, combine the green olives, kalamata olives, garlic, cauliflower, capers, celery, carrot, pepperoncini, cocktail onions, celery seed, oregano, basil, black pepper, vinegar, olive oil and canola oil. Mix together and transfer mixture into a glass jar (or other nonreactive container). If needed, pour in more oil to cover. Cover jar or container and refrigerate at least overnight.
  • To Make Sandwiches: Cut loaves of bread in half horizontally; hollow out some of the excess bread to make room for filling. Spread each piece of bread with equal amounts olive salad, including oil. Layer 'bottom half' of each loaf with 1/2 of the salami, ham, mortadella, mozzarella and Provolone. Replace 'top half' on each loaf and cut sandwich into quarters.
  • Serve immediately, or wrap tightly and refrigerate for a few hours; this will allow for the flavors to mingle and the olive salad to soak into the bread.

Time 2h15m

Number Of Ingredients 17

3 garlic cloves
1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup pitted Castelvetrano olives
1 cup pitted Kalamata olives
2/3 cup Giardiniera (Italian-style pickled vegetables)
1 shallot (minced)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano (or 1 teaspoon dried)
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper (to taste)
1 large Muffuletta bread
1/2 pound Genoa salami (sliced thin)
1/2 pound ham (sliced thin)
1/2 pound provolone cheese
1/2 pound fresh mozzarella
1/4 pound mortadella (sliced thin)
1/2 pound Prosciutto di Parma (sliced thin)
1/4 pound soppressata (hot or sweet)


  • In a small bowl, combine the olive oil and minced garlic. Let it sit for at least 15 minutes.
  • Place the olives, giardiniera, shallot and oregano in your food processor. Pulse a few times until coarsely chopped.
  • Transfer the olive mixture to a bowl. Add half of the garlic oil and vinegar. Stir until throughly mixed.
  • Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed. For best results, cover with plastic and refrigerate overnight (or up to a week).
  • Split the bread in half and brush each cut side with the remaining garlic oil.
  • Heat a medium-sized skillet over medium heat, and toast the bread directly in the pan until crisp and golden brown, about 1-2 minutes per side.
  • Place the bottom part of the bread, cut side up, on a cutting board. Spread half of the olive salad, making sure to include the juices.
  • Layer all the Genoa salami, followed by all the ham. Then, layer the provolone cheese, mozzarella cheese, mortadella, prosciutto and soppressata. Finish with the remaining olive salad.
  • Close the sandwich and wrap it tightly - two or three times - with plastic wrap.
  • Place the muffuletta top side up on a cutting board and put something heavy (like a big book or a heavy pot) on top of it, to compress it. Let it rest for 1 hour. After 1 hour, turn the sandwich upside down and continue compressing for another hour.
  • Cut the sandwich into wedges and serve.

Number Of Ingredients 14

Olive Salad:
1 cup each pitted green and black olives, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon tiny capers
1/3 cup diced (1/4 inch) roasted red bell pepper
1/4 cup diced (1/4 inch) celery, with leaves
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 teaspoons finely minced garlic
2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 round peasant bread (about 7 inches in diameter, 5 inches high), halved crosswise, insides pulled out
4 ounces each thinly sliced Genoa salami and mortadella (found in the deli section)
4 ounces thinly sliced provolone cheese


  • 1. Prepare the Olive Salad ahead of time: Combine all the ingredients and set aside in the refrigerator for 4 hours or longer.
  • 2. Assemble the sandwich: Spread half of the Olive Salad on the bottom half of the bread. Layer with salami, provolone and mortadella, then top with the remaining Olive Salad. Cover with the top of the bread, press down and let stand for 10 to 15 minutes. Wrap the sandwich in plastic wrap and let stand for 1 hour.
  • 3. Unwrap, cut into 6 wedges using a serrated knife, then wrap them for the road. Be sure to hollow out the bread so the salad can fit inside. Doing so also cuts carbs and calories.

Categories     easy, lunch, quick, main course

Time 30m

Yield Serves 6 to 8

Number Of Ingredients 18

1 cup roughly chopped pitted green olives, preferably Bella di Cerignola
1 cup roughly chopped pitted Kalamata olives
1/2 cup roughly chopped peeled roasted red peppers
1/3 cup roughly chopped flat-leaf parsley
1/4 cup celery leaves, torn
3/4 cup thinly sliced celery
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
Pinch freshly ground black pepper
One (8 to 9 inches in diameter and 4 inches high) round loaf crusty Italian bread
4 ounces soppressata, thinly sliced
8 ounces provolone cheese, sliced
4 ounces Italian deli ham, thinly sliced
4 ounces mortadella, thinly sliced
4 ounces sweet coppa (cured Italian pork), thinly sliced
4 ounces hard salami or bresaola, thinly sliced


  • Make the olive salad by combining all ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside to marinate.
  • Assemble the muffuletta by slicing the loaf of bread horizontally into 2 large pieces, with the top piece 2/3 the size of the bottom piece. Hollow out the top piece by removing the soft bread inside, leaving 1/2 inch of bread near the crust. Spread half of the olive salad on the bottom piece. Begin layering the meats, starting with the soppressata and adding 1/4 of the provolone cheese between each layer of meat except for the last.
  • Spread the remaining olive salad on the last layer of meat and top with the hollowed bread. Press down lightly and let sit at least 10 minutes. To serve, slice into 6 or 8 wedges. It will keep for several hours in the refrigerator wrapped in plastic.

Mom's Sit Sandwich (Aka Squishy Sorta Muffuletta) image

From my Family Recipe Box, Mom loves this sandwich! "This sandwich is a 'smashing success'... in more ways than one. It's a great traveler." You must admit, it is pretty amusing. :) From the Family Recipe Box, dated 3/1/85. The sandwich keeps well, chilled, and is good for taking along on picnics and camping trips.

Time 2h

Yield 6 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 9

1 large round loaf French bread (or oval "peasant" loaf, or sourdough)
1 (6 1/2 ounce) jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained, liquid reserved (you can use the hearts whole or roughly chopped)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
3 large ripe tomatoes, sliced
3 ounces thinly sliced salami
1/2 lb thinly sliced unsmoked turkey breast
1/4 lb cheese slice, any kind (provolone and fresh mozzarella are my faves)
1 (2 1/2 ounce) can sliced ripe black olives, drained
1 purple onion, thinly sliced (amount to taste)


  • Cut loaf of bread in half horizontally and hollow out the soft bread from both halves, leaving a shell about 3/4-inch thick.
  • Reserve soft bread for another use.
  • In small bowl, combine artichoke liquid with mayonnaise and spread onto bread shells.
  • In bottom half, layer ingredients at least three times until mounded high, beginning and ending with tomatoes.
  • Place top half of bread over mound of ingredients.
  • Wrap entire loaf tightly with plastic wrap.
  • This must be assembled at least 2 hours before serving, but can be assembled up to 8 hours before serving.
  • Refrigerate.
  • Before serving, place sandwich (wrapped in plastic) on a hard surface and SIT ON IT! This smashes the ingredients together and makes it easier to serve. Do not omit this step, strange as it seems, as this step is what makes the sandwich delicious.
  • Slice the loaf into wedges or slices to serve.
  • Note: I usually roughly chop the artichoke hearts, myself. Also, regarding the artichoke juice mixture: you can add only half of it to the mayo, if you like - how much of the spread you're going to need depends on the size of loaf you've gotten.
  • Note #2: other good additions I've made to the sandwich include strips of roasted red and yellow pepper, whole fresh basil leaves (placed on top of the tomatoes) or pesto into the mayo, pepperoncini and/or sliced sweet red cherry peppers, pancetta, and more salami or other hard sausage than the recipe calls for.
  • Note #3: any leftover mayo mixture, by the way, makes a great salad dressing! I once accidentally used the juice from a jar larger than the recipe called for and the mixture was far more than I needed -- so to thicken it up a bit I added a bit of lowfat sour cream, and made the leftover mixture (much to my husband's delight) available as salad dressing. Yum!

Muffuletta, which originated in New Orleans, is named after the round, crusty Sicilian loaf of bread it's traditionally served on. While I favor my own olive salad, there are several good versions available in most supermarkets. -Lou Sansevero, Ferron, Utah

Olive Salad-version 1
1 cup sliced marinated artichoke hearts
1/2 cup shredded carrot
1/2 cup shredded inner stalks celery
1/2 cup finely chopped pitted green olives
1/2 cup finely chopped roasted red peppers
1/2 cup seeded, finely chopped pickled Tuscan peperoncini
1/2 cup pitted chopped kalamata olives
1/2 cup sliced pickled cocktail onions
1/4 cup drained tiny capers in brine
2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
3 anchovy fillets, chopped
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon peperoncino flakes

1 cup sliced marinated artichoke hearts
1/2 cup finely chopped pitted green olives
1/2 cup pitted chopped kalamata olives

2 ounces provolone, sliced
2 ounces deli ham, sliced
2 ounces capicola, sliced
2 ounces mortadella, sliced
2 ounces low-moisture mozzarella, sliced
2 ounces Genoa salami, sliced


  • To prepare either version of the olive salad, mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Cover, and refrigerate several hours or overnight, to let the flavors develop. This makes more salad than you need for one 8-inch sandwich. Extra olive salad will keep for a week or more and can be used in salads, sandwiches, etc.
  • Lay the bottom of the muffuletta bread on a work surface, cut side up. Layer half of the cheeses and meats on the bread, then spread with 1/2 cup of the olive salad. Top with the remaining meats and cheeses.Finish with another 1/2 cup olive salad. Place top of bread on olive salad, and press down. Cut into four wedges.
