Easy Magnificent Muffulettas
February 3, 2009
With Mardi Gras around the corner, I thought a taste of New Orleans was in order. My best friend in Nashville, Lisa, always talks about making Muffulettas because she entertains a lot, and it’s fun, delicious, casual food that tastes great. This version is really simple, quick and really good. I made these for Super Bowl Sunday, and they were an instant hit. Be sure to choose pitted olives to make your life easier. Feel free to add ham, salami, Italian salami, prosciutto or your favorite deli meats or cheeses.
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 30 minutes
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
1 pint pitted assorted olives (1 cup finely chopped)
4 hoagie rolls, sliced lengthwise
3/4 pound sliced deli turkey (I used pepper turkey)
4 slices Munster cheese
4 slices Mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons olive oil
1. Process olives in a food processor until finely chopped. Spread olives evenly on cut sides of half of the bread. Top with turkey and cheeses and brush 1 tablespoon olive oil evenly over inside of bread.
2. Wrap each sandwich in lightly greased aluminum foil and place all on a baking sheet. Bake, covered at 350F for 20 minutes. Uncover and brush top of sandwich rolls with remaining olive oil. Bake, uncovered, 10 to 15 minutes more or until lightly browned and cheese is melted. Cut into small slices for appetizers-size sandwiches.
