I started by making the bread. I used Mama D’s Italian from this site, it is a favorite of mine and the recipe will produce 2, 9”- 10” boules.When the loaves were formed for the second rise, I spritzed it with a little water and sprinkled sesame seeds on top and covered. About 20-25 minutes later they were ready for the oven and just before I put them in, I gently brushed on an egg mixture of 2 TBSP of cold water and 1 egg. Assembly: I had made the olive salad, as written, the day before and put the mixture into a jar and made sure there was plenty of olive oil to cover the mixture. I then carefully hollowed out the top and bottom of the bread after slicing through the middle. I weighed out the mixture into 4 prep bowls and then laid out the meats and cheeses for assembly. I spread the salad into each half of the bread evenly and started layering the meat and cheese on, making sure everything came out to the edge. After the last of the cheese was layered on, I aligned the top to the bottom and flipped the top to the bottom. I ended up with 2, 3+ pound sandwiches. I wrapped both sandwiches in plastic wrap and have them in the fridge to let the flavors come together. *UPDATE* Just got back from the party, and the Muffuletta was a big hit. I'll be using this quite often for sure!
