Mortadella and Cheese Muffuletta Sandwich

The muffuletta has two meanings. It is a type of sesame-crusted bread from Sicily and at the same time a popular sandwich from New Orleans. We’ve made ours with olive and caper salad, mortadella, mozzarella, salami, and cheese slices. So, if you’re a fan of layered, savory sandwiches, this one is for you!

Ingredients

2 tablespoons of fresh parsley, chopped
1 ounce olives, sliced
1 ounce capers
1 pickled red bell pepper
2 garlic cloves
salt
pepper
1 loaf of bread, approximately 1 pound (450 grams)
5 ounces of cheese slices
7 ounces of mortadella, thinly sliced
5 ounces of low moisture mozzarella, sliced
3.5 ounces of salami, sliced

Steps

  1. Add the parsley, olives, capers, pickled bell pepper, and garlic to your food processor. Season with salt and pepper. Blend everything until smooth.
  2. Slice the bread loaf horizontally through the middle.
  3. Add 1-2 tablespoons of veggie salsa over the bottom side of the loaf and press it a bit with a spoon.
  4. Start topping the sandwich with the following toppings. Add the sliced cheese, half of the mortadella, mozzarella, salami, and the remaining mortadella.
  5. Cover with parchment paper and use a weight to press the sandwich. You can improvise with a saucepan filled with water like in the video.
  6. Add the remaining veggie mix on the top side of the bread loaf and press with a spoon.
  7. Close the sandwich with the top side of the bread and press it well.
  8. Slice it into quarters before serving.
