Muffuletta Sandwich

O.K. Maybe the Muffuletta dose not belong on this blog, because you don't cook it. But I gave you the bread recipe for it, so here it is. The muffuletta is thought, to be Italian, but it's not. It was first made in New Orleans' almost 100 years age. I believe it was Central Grocery that made it, and still dose. You use a 10"-12" loaf of Italian bread and cut it horizontally, Some peak out some of the bread for the middle. (personal Pref.) Brush some of the oil from the olive salad on the top and bottom buns. Arrange the meat and cheese, in this order, 1/4 lb. Genoa Salami, 1/4 lb. Capicola, 1/4 lb. Mortadella, 1/8 lb. Sliced Mozzarella, 1/8 lb. Provolone, and top with Olive Salad. Cut the sandwich in quarters and serve one to each person.
