The Muffaletta Sandwich, also known as the ‘Really Big Sandwich’ is one of Stud’s favorites!  Made with a Round, Crusty Italian Bread that’s center has been hollowed a bit to allow for meats, cheeses, and a finely chopped olive salad mix!

Here’s the round, crusty Italian Loaf

And these are all the ingredients I use to fill a Muffelatta Sandwich, before serving!  It’s an easy prep and totally tasty!!!  Enjoy.  And if you’re in the mood for sandwiches, here are more of our favorite sandwiches!!!
