The Food Lab: How to Make a Muffuletta Shooter's-Style Sandwich

J. Kenji López-Alt 15 comments

I'm going to go ahead and declare the Muffuletta the King of sandwiches. The New Orleans classic is made with layers of cold cuts and provolone cheese on a sesame seed-studded muffuletta loaf, dressed with a punchy olive salad. Typically, it gets wrapped in plastic and is allowed to rest for at least an hour or so to let the bread soak up some of the oil and vinegar from the salad. When you compress the same sandwich shooter's-style, it elevates the whole affair, forcing flavors to mingle even more than they normally do. More

How to Make Classic New Orleans Muffulettas

J. Kenji López-Alt 5 comments

Originally created at the Central Grocery in New Orleans when the enterprising owner suggested that customers place their typical lunch of sliced cured meat and preserved vegetables inside the bread instead of alongside it, this sandwich is one of the few foods that actually gets better as it sits around at room temperature. With only four ingredients, it's exceedingly simple to make, and there's no better time than on Fat Tuesday. More

Classic New Orleans Muffuletta Sandwich

The classic New Orleans sandwich combines a homemade olive salad with layers of thin-sliced Italian cold cuts. The secret is to let it rest before eating so the olive juices get absorbed into the bread. More

Vegan: Broccoli Rabe and Antipasti Panini with Olive Salad

The Vegan Experience J. Kenji López-Alt 5 comments

This sandwich is based on a muffuletta, but it wasn't as simple as removing the meat and cheese and shoving in vegetables in its place. You have to first think exactly what it is that made the meat and cheese work in a real muffuletta in the first place. For me, the success is in the texture: moist and compact, but still toothsome and giving with a balance of flavors—funky, salty, sour, herbal, a bit of dried fruit from the well-aged cured meats.

A Sandwich a Day: Muffuletta from Central Grocery in New Orleans

A Sandwich a Day Chichi Wang 11 comments

In New Orleans, the muffuletta is a sandwich that's made on a round, disc-like sesame bread filled with cured meats, marinated olives, and pickled vegetables. Though you can buy mufffulettas at any number of places in the city, it all began at Central Grocery in the French Quarter, where it came about as a way for Sicilians to combine the separate ingredients of their meal.

A Sandwich a Day: Hot Muffuletta from Napoleon House in New Orleans

A Sandwich a Day Chris Hansen 8 comments

"Aside from Central Grocery, who else makes a good muffuletta in the French Quarter?" Without hesitation, my bartender replied "Napoleon House." A half muffuletta ($7.50) arrives piping hot from the oven, dripping with melted provolone and Swiss cheese and a healthy layer of ham, genoa salami and pastrami. It may not follow the blueprint of the traditional muffuletta, usually served cold, but a hot one makes a fine paring with a cold beer and a hangover. More

In New Orleans, It's the Monday Muffuletta Conundrum

Erin Zimmer 10 comments

From May 22 to May 31, I traveled across country, from Washington, D.C., to San Francisco, California. Here's a snippet from that week. Left: Frank's, the muffuletta imposter. Right: Central Grocery's original muffuletta, the superior of the two, even if they look eerily similar here. Nobody warned me to avoid New Orleans on a Monday. So after miles of building up the city's sandwich staple, the muffuletta, only to find the mother source Central Grocery closed on Mondays, I felt cheated. Granted, it was Memorial Day Monday, but that didn't matter. Central Grocery is always closed on Mondays. Outside the shop, a herd of us victims huddled, as if awaiting an aproned man with the golden key from inside who... More
