Muffuletta Spirals Recipe

Muffuletta spirals ready to serve

This recipe came about while we working on, of all things, an easy-to-make white bread. We had made so many batches of dough perfecting that recipe that I started thinking about how we could use it instead of another loaf of bread.

I decided on coating the dough with some pesto and rolled it into a log, cut it like you would do cinnamon rolls and baked it up. DELICIOUS!

Leave it to Leigh to ramp it up. She suggested adding all the ingredients that make up a muffuletta and making an even more savory and satisfying spiral.

What we ended up with was a mouthwatering creation filled with swirls of a hearty filling of hand-held heaven. You tired of a standard sandwich then you have to try this. Can’t get to New Orleans … bring New Orleans to you!

What Is A Muffuletta Made Of?

The traditional-style muffuletta sandwich consists of a muffuletta bread loaf split horizontally and covered with layers of olive salad, salami, ham, Swiss cheese, provolone, and mortadella.

The signature olive salad consists of olives diced with the celery, cauliflower, and carrot found in a jar of giardiniera, seasoned with oregano and garlic, covered in olive oil, and allowed to combine for at least 24 hours.

This recipe uses our quick and easy bread recipe for the dough. Before you begin this recipe, you will need to prepare your dough using the steps laid down in that recipe.

Once the dough is ready turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and shape into an 18″ x 12″ rectangle.

Spread the olive salad evenly over dough, leaving about an inch bare at the top.

Doesn’t that look scrumptious? You have that fresh-baked bread with spirals of savory meats and the briny saltiness of the olive salad with melted cheese throughout. One is enough, two puts you in a big easy food coma!

We also topped ours with shavings of romano cheese, but that’s because Leigh is a nut for Romano.

Give these a whirl sometimes. They’re great for get-togethers or for any meal for that matter. You just can’t beat this hand-held spiral of deliciousness!
