Food Blog : Muffaletto

Happy Wednesdays ! I am back on line and so happy to be with you. Today is National Cold Cut Day and I am highlighting a Classic New Orleans sandwich. If you are in New Orleans check out the ones at : Central Groceries.

Grant’s Easy muffaletta

  • Slice bread in half, scoop out excess bread until there is 1/2 inch to 1 inch of the bread left. Generously spread the olive salad onto both sides of the bread. Layer the meats and cheese. Top with the top half of the bread. Tightly wrap the sandwich in plastic wrap. This will take a few times wrapping it with the plastic wrap around the entire sandwich.
  • Place the sandwich in the fridge and put something heavy on top so the top of the bread squishes down. Leave overnight, slice into 4 pieces and serve.

My today’s sandwich is from my local Grocery store”

Cannatella’s Grocery & Hardware

Cannatella’s Grocery is a fourth-generation grocery and hardware store that has been serving the people of Melville since 1923. The store carries general merchandise, lumber, and a wide variety of tools and hardware. On the grocery side, you can purchase a freshly made muffuletta, fresh Italian sausage, or their famous olive salad, all recipes that have been in the Cannatella family for ages.

While visiting, be sure to browse The Old Store, which is adjacent, to see photos and items from the past, including the original pressed tin ceiling. Also, shop for antique and vintage items.
