It may not be as famous as the Po’Boy, but this New Orleans Muffuletta Sandwich is just as yummy and just as quintessentially Big Easy. You certainly won’t go hungry munching on this!
I imagine I was a bit spoiled for food choices, living so close to New Orleans for so long. I took delicious Big Easy-style cuisine, including great sandwiches like the muffuletta, so for granted, it took my moving away for a while to appreciate just how great that it is. The muffuletta sandwich was actually invented back in the early 20th century by The Central Grocery, located in the famous French Quarter, as a means of feeding VERY hungry Sicilian farmers selling their wares in the French Market. Since then, this hearty sandwich has become a New Orleans signature dish, and you can have all of that great flavor in the comfort of your own home thanks to this recipe.
