Muffaletta Mix Recipe

Ingredients

An added bonus for Muffuletta mix.  Sweet onions are my preference. You can always leave the onions out if you don't like them.

Getting Started

This recipe is not hard to prepare but, it requires several ingredients that you may not normally have on hand unless you really enjoy cooking and cook different things. You may love to experiment with different recipes and flavors as much as I do or even more but, I still do not have exactly everything on hand that was needed. I always fix the recipe as is it calls for the first time I make a recipe, and then, if there's something that I don't like, it can be left out from then on.

Fresh ingredients are the best taking vegetables, in my opinion.

I have a lot of different recipes that I like to make and I have enough recipes to last a lifetime.

I would make a suggestion of serving this Muffuletta mix on Italian bread with your favorite Italian meats such as bologna, salami, pastrami, jam, roast beef. Then you could really put what ever cheese you would want on the sandwich such as, provolone, American, cheddar and mozzarella. I have also had Provolone and American cheese on my sandwiches in the past. It is really whatever you like. There is no right or wrong way to make this sandwich. Add or take away whatever toppings you do, or do not want. You can use a little Muffuletta mix but, male sure your like it. A Muffuletta goes a long way. So you can also use Italian dressing.

This is a recipe mix that just gets better the longer it sits. This is great to serve sandwich to a crowd. A little bit goes a long way.

I love the idea of serving the Muffuletta mix on pre made sandwiches on big bulky, crusty Italian bread. It is great to cut the sandwiches into slices and serve it on a cutting board. Then you can serve it with potato chips, French fries, vegetables, lettuce, tomatoes and pickles, if desired.

A great way to prepare these sandwiches is to put the Muffuletta Mix on your bread, layer several sandwich meats such as salami, ham, pepperoni, bologna and any additional meats you may like. It is great layered with your favorite cheeses as well.

This does make a lot of mix so, if you didn't need it all, a great idea for this would be to make it and share it with your friends! This is a great sandwich mix to fix and serve at work as a surprise lunch (if you don't have a large office). If you have friends coming over, this mix makes so much that you could buy little glass containers from any department store. You can fill each jar with the Muffuletta mix, make labels if you want and then there's almost endless possibilities to making tags. The tags could include the friend's name or just say Muffuletta mix. I would go ahead and type up directions for making this recipe. You can have copies waiting on your guests.

If you know someone who is having a wedding shower, you could buy a basket, buy a gift card to the grocery store and include the Muffuletta mix in a decorative jar to put the mix in. Buy a kitchen towel to line the basket with. Place a few cooking utensils along with the Muffaletta mix in the basket. Then you have a personalized wedding gift for someone you know. They will have a basket, towel, utensils and the mix as well as, the gift card to the grocery store, (if you chose to spend that much money). You can dress up the basket if you wanted to or add different things to the basket to give as your gift. Meaning that you don't just have to fix this up for a wedding shower, a basket like this could be fixed up for any occasion and given as a gift. This is a good and creative gift for the cook in your life.

Be creative, this can be very fun!!

I hope you enjoy this recipe and these ideas. I hope that you will re-visit this hub and let me know what kind of basket you have created as well as leave your comments at the bottom of this page.

Fresh Ingredients

I would like to challenge you to try your own herb garden. These are very easy to prepare and they don't take up a lot of space in the yard. If you don't have space in your yard, you could have several herb plants in pots on the front or back porch.

As much as possible with this recipe I try to use the freshest ingredients. This recipe is very, very flavor filled and you don't want to use anything but the best.

There are so many great flavors in this recipe from oregano, pepper, parsley, basil and jalapenos to the fresh cut vegetables, this is truly a must try recipe.
