Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Combine olives, celery, garlic and dressing.
  • Cut bread horizontally in half. Hollow out top half of loaf slightly; discard removed bread or reserve for another use.
  • Spread bottom half of bread with half the olive mixture; top with layers of meat, cheese and remaining olive mixture. Cover with top of bread; press down lightly to secure. Wrap tightly.
  • Refrigerate 2 hours or until chilled. Cut into wedges to serve.

How to Crush Garlic

Peel garlic, then mince on a cutting board with a chef’s knife. Sprinkle lightly with salt. Press garlic into cutting board by dragging the knife over the garlic. (Salt is an abrasive and will make it even easier to crush. It also helps to prevent the garlic from sticking to the knife.)

Substitute

Prepare using your family's favorite OSCAR MAYER Meats and KRAFT Cheeses, such as Turkey, Bologna, Cheddar and Swiss.

Take Along

Cut sandwich into wedges, then wrap entire sandwich together with plastic wrap. No need to bring a knife along for cutting!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I grew up in New Orleans and have eaten more than my share of muffulettas. I grew up in New Orleans and have eaten more than my share of muffulettas. This is very close to the original made by Central Grocery except that they use genoa salami instead of cotto salami. It gives it more of an italian flavor. This sandwich is even better when you wrap it in foil and put it in the oven on 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. It makes the cheese melt just right and doesn't affect the taste of the olive salad.

I should have hollowed out the bread a little more evenly. I also heated it and it took longer to heat through than I had thought it would. However, when it was finished, it was a big hit with the adults (as you might imagine, the kids weren't big on the olives.) Thanks.

Very easy - I made the olive spread in a food processor and omitted the garlic (there was plenty of that flavor in the dressing). Used genoa salami and provolone for a bit more flavour and also toated some of the sandwiches which added to the yum factor and made them very welcome on a cold day.

The taste of the olive mixture was a little overwhelming on the first bite but then my husband & I 'adapted' to it and really liked it! My 8 yr old son didn't like it at all. Since it makes such a big sandwich, it'll be great for a Sunday football game get together!!

I took a prior commentor's advice and used my food processor for the olive mix - worked like a charm! This was good, and I think if I had heated it as suggested, it would have been awesome.

We have been looking for a good muffulleta receipe ever since enjoying them in New Orleans/Louisiana. The sugesstion to wrap in foil and pop in the ove for a few mins prior to serving is a good one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is so great! This is so great! We are doing the South Beach Diet and it fits with that plan if you use sour dough bread. It was a big hit with my family, and I will make it again, and again!
