My Mom always made individual muffalettas growing up. She would buy round hard rolls or burger buns from the bakery. In the past few years these rolls have become scarce. And I have never seen the round Italian bread here. So we have started make muffalettas on french bread. This makes a great sandwich for parties. We decided to make it for our Super Bowl party this year after one of my sister's friend requested the recipe for her Mardi Gras party. We are so impressionable. Just the mere mention of a muffaletta and we had to have one. It is really more assembly than recipe. If you have good ingredients you have a great muffaletta. I think the olive salad makes this recipe. If you can't find olive salad try the recipe posted here. Or if you are watching your carbs try the Easy Pizzaletta. It is like a muffaletta quesadilla.

Serves: 4 to 6


1 French bread loaf
1/4 lb. Provolone cheese, sliced thin
1/4 lb. Hard salami, sliced thin
1/4 lb. Deli ham, sliced thin
1/2 jar Olive salad mix
1/4 lb. Part-skim mozzarella cheese, sliced
Aluminum foil


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cut French bread in half length wise. Remove some of the bread from the center of each half (optional). Place both halves on a sheet of aluminum foil longer than twice the length of French bread. Brush the cut side of the French bread with a little of the dressing from the olive salad mix. Then layer one side with provolone cheese, salami, ham, olive salad mix, and mozzarella cheese. Top with other side of French bread. Wrap with foil and place in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes or until cheese is melted and muffaletta is hot. To serve remove from foil and cut into pieces.
