Craving Jason's Deli paying for Oscar Myer
New Orleans Style Muffalatta, modified
I love muffalatas, which is a large round sandwich, but you can not find the bread or the olive mix in Bulverde, Texas or even in our neck of the woods in San Antonio, so I made my own version.
First to make the olive mix
One cup chopped green olives not diced
One cup chopped black olives not diced
1/2 cup chopped Gardina Mix(pickled veggies in pickle Ilse)
3 medium garlic cloves pushed through garlic press
1/3 cup olive oil
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
For the sandwich
2 loaves frozen garlic bread split in half (other french breads work as well)
2 pounds shaved ham you can also use turkey or combo of both
8 slices Swiss cheese sliced regular
Preheat oven to 325 degrees
Place both bottom halves of french bread on cookie sheet
ad 2 slices cheese to each loaf. break up pieces to evenly distribute
add 1/4 meat to each loaf
add approximately 1 cup olive mix to each loaf (a lot is always best)
add the rest of meat to each loaf
put top of loaf on then place a cookie sheet on top with a cast iron pan on top
to weight it down.
Bake for 20-30 minutes
Serve with Potato chips
Very good I made 2 loaves for four people and wish I had made more.
With the left over olive mix you can add a pack of cream cheese to it and use as spread for your bagels. Also a fave.
The meal cost approximately $15
