Northernized Muffuletta.

Technically, I shouldn't even call this a muffuletta as it's by no means the standard authentic New Orleans version you may be familiar with. For the authentic version, check out Nola Cuisine's delicious looking sandwich! The reason my sandwich is not authentic is it completely lacks the olive salad goodness. Since the husband seriously dislikes olives in any form, I opted not to include it and was simply too lazy to make some for my side of the sandwich. In the end it's more like an Italian sub than it is a muffuletta, but who cares? It was still good and it's still Fat Tuesday - bring on the Paczki!

Northernized Muffuletta

thinly sliced Italian ham
thinly sliced salami
provolone cheese
mozzarella cheese
1 small loaf Italian bread
1. Slice loaf in half and top with the meats & cheeses. Top with peppers or olives if desired.
2. Bake in 350 oven for about 15 minutes or until your sandwich looks they way you like it. I do not place the top part of the bread back on, instead I lay it alongside the bottom half. That way the cheese & meat get more direct heat.
3. Top with lettuce or anything else your heart desires, slice in half and enjoy.
