Slice the muffuletta rolls in half horizontally and lightly brush each half with olive oil.
To build the sandwich, start with an ample amount of olive salad on the bottom of the roll. Then pile on some ham, followed by 4 slices of salami, 3-4 slices of provolone cheese, and top it all with a small amount of olive salad.
Close the sandwich with the top half of the bread, and cut the sandwich into quarters.
For hot muffulettas: Wrap all 4 quarters together in aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees until the bread is crispy and the cheese begins to melt.
*Olive salad can be found in jars on grocery shelves in Louisiana. It’s a mix of olives, cauliflower, carrots, and other vegetables marinated in olive oil. If you cannot purchase jarred olive salad, you can find a good recipe for homemade olive salad online.
*Muffuletta bread is a large round roll topped with sesame seeds that can feed 4 people per roll. You can make mini muffulettas by looking for a regular hamburger sized or smaller round rolls with sesame seeds. Many grocery stores have Kaiser rolls with sesame seeds, which work great!
