How to make a classic New Orleans Muffuletta sandwich with olive salad spread recipe. Just like the kind from Central Grocery & Deli in the French Quarter.
round bread loaf
artisan or sourdough
capocollo or prosciutto
soppressata or salami
provolone or mozzarella
olive salad spread
Slice the bread in half horizontally.
Evenly spread half of the lunchmeat on the bottom half of the bread loaf. Take half of the cheese and spread on top of the meat. Repeat with remaining meat and cheese.
Spoon the olive salad spread on top of the cheese and spread so that it is an even thickness.
Place the top half of the bread on top. Take a baking sheet and place on top of the muffuletta. Press down for a couple minutes to compress the sandwich.
Brush with melted butter, slice into wedges and serve.
