Ingredients for a Muffuletta
The ingredients are everything in a easy muffuletta sandwich recipe. With store-bought olive tapenade, this sandwich is as simple as assembling it. This dish requires homemade olive spread, which adds flavor and only takes two minutes to make.
Italian bread, green and black olives, garlic, dried oregano and thyme, sliced provolone cheese, sliced Swiss cheese, salami, mortadella, and capicola are all required. (Or buy a pre-made olive tapenade that uses the same herbs.)
Spread the Olive Mixture on the Bread
In a food processor, combine the green and black olives, olive oil, garlic, oregano, and thyme. With no food processor, finely chop the olives and combine them with the oil and herbs in a small dish.
Make two lengthwise slices of the Italian loaf. Pour 1/4 cup of the olive mixture on one side of the bread. Keep the spread to one side so it doesn’t overwhelm the flavors of the meats and cheeses.
Assemble And Then Eat the Sandwich
Now to assemble this lovely sandwich. After the olive spread, add the cheese and meat slices, starting with one cheese, then a slice of meat, then the other cheese, and finally the remaining meat.
Finish the sandwich by adding the top bread piece and slicing the muffuletta into four equal halves. So let’s dig! “It does not keep well,” Carli notes, “so it is better consumed immediately.” But that’s not a problem, because rejecting a muffuletta is nearly impossible, and leftovers are rare.
