Being from New Orleans I was kind of tired of fixing muffulettas the "traditional" way and was looking for something different. I found this recipe and gave it a shot. It's really tasty! To the naysayers... don't knock it till you try it.
Insult to REAL MUFFULETTA---processed American cheese??? Surprised there isn't SPAM listed as a Main Ingredient!!!

Not being a meat-lover, I omit the meat and use provolone instead of that American cheese processed "food". The bread can make or break this sandwich, so be sure to use a thick-crusted rustic bread. (I also hollow mine out so I don't have more bread than filling.)
I have never before played "nutrition police," but can the sodium and fat listed possibly be right? The sodium is 1.5 times the recommended daily allowance, and the fat is 85% of the RDA. I can see that there are a lot of salty and fatty ingredients, but I can't imagine that each individual sandwich could be that high?
I've made these dozens of times, I use mozzarella cheese slices and a almost 1 tsp garlic powder (not garlic salt) and a dash of sea salt and these are the BEST!!! A friend said these were so good, he thought it was a subway sub! Very yummy. My husband takes them for his lunch the next day.
