Put a little Mardi Gras into your game day celebration with these delicious little sandwiches. They're a mini version of the New Orleans classic muffuletta and are extra fun because they're made from toaster waffles. They pack all the punch of the traditional fave with none of the fuss. Score!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

What a fun way to add a little Cajun to your appetizer table. We love using mini waffles as bread. Their sweetness helps to balance out the saltiness of the olive salad, ham, and salami. These are super quick to make so you can spend less time in the kitchen and more time at your Mardi Gras party. If you can't find mini waffles at your supermarket (we had an issue), buy regular size waffles and cut them smaller with a circular biscuit or cookie cutter.
