Gather the Ingredients.

Before you start your Muffuletta, make sure you have everything you need. You'll need a freshly baked round loaf of bread such as a sesame seed French baguette or Italian-style round sourdough.

Make sure to double the portion of olive salad filling ingredients, as this will not only make your sandwich more flavorful but will also give it its classic muffuletta look.

Assemble Your Sandwich.

To assemble your classic Muffuletta sandwich, start with the base layer of thinly sliced meats. Alternate between layers of ham, salami and mortadella. Then layer on thinly sliced cheeses such as provolone and Swiss followed by a generous helping of the olive salad filling onto each slice. Place the top piece of bread on and press down firmly to flatten before cutting into six equal slices for serving. Enjoy!

Slice and Serve Your Sandwich.

Once your Muffuletta sandwich is fully assembled, use a sharp knife to cut through the top and bottom pieces of soft Italian bread. Carefully slice the sandwich into six equal parts so that everyone could enjoy this classic New Orleans favorite. Serve with side dishes such as potato chips or coleslaw for an extra touch!
