For the uninitiated, a muffuletta is traditionally a sandwich on a round Sicilian sesame bread, originated by Italian immigrants in New Orleans. A traditional style muffuletta sandwich consists of a muffuletta loaf split horizontally and covered with layers of marinated olive salad, mortadella, salami, mozzarella, ham, and provolone. The sandwich is sometimes heated to soften the provolone. Quarter, half, and full-sized muffulettas are sold.
This recipe is a fun variation of the muffuletta.
