Reviews for Mini Muffuletta
"I love this recipe! I have been making it for a few years now and always get many compliments! The only change I made is that I don't add the Mozzarella. I think the provolone cheese is enough."
"I've made a similar recipe out of a large round of bread. I love the idea of smaller bites!! I also place a heavy pan or dishes on top of them to "press" the sandwiches. Thanks so much for posting!"
"I have made this many times, excellent make-ahead item for parties. Sometimes I add a little mayo and mustard to the top layer only for flavor. They're always a hit!"
"What would there be 'not' to like about these?? This recipe is definately going in my 'recipe box'!!Kitzer ~ >^..^< ~ meow"
"Like the idea of this make ahead muffuletta.Will make it for Easter snacks."
"I found that making the Muffuletta with real cheeses and the meats it was too expensive. But I thought of a few ideas and I find that corned beef sliced thick makes a great substitute along with thinly sliced mozzarella cheese... I would DEFINATELY make this again whenever I have unexpected guests over. It's a great recipe that everyone loves!"
"these look delish!!! i havn't made them yet!!! next time a shower comes up at our church these will be perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
