Muffuletta Sandwich

Originally, the muffuletta sandwich (named from the bread) sprang up in Sicily, only to cross the ocean later. We show you how to put together your own. Instead of sesame bread, we used a whole wheat one. First, it can be no muffuletta without mortadella, olive oil, and cheese. Pair these with baked veggies, flavor with basil and spice it with salsa.

Ingredients

2 zucchini, sliced
2 red bell peppers, quartered
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt
pepper
1 whole wheat bread (muffuletta)
3 tablespoons of salsa sauce
fresh basil
5 mortadella slices
5 cheddar slices, halved

Steps

  1. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and add the zucchinis and red bell peppers. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and bake for 40 minutes at 360⁰F/180⁰C.
  2. Split the muffuletta bread horizontally approximately 1 inch from the top and remove the crumb.
  3. Coat its interior with 2 tablespoons of salsa sauce. Layer some basil leaves on the bottom, then alternately add mortadella, cheddar, and cooked veggies.
  4. Finish with more basil and with the remaining tablespoon of salsa, then cover with the upper half of the bread.
  5. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
