On the weekends when we are hanging around the house, I want to make a lunch that the kids will actually enjoy and will hold them over until dinner. This lunch option is also easy to serve to friends and family when we are watching the game – World Cup soccer is in full swing here.

One of my favorite sandwiches is a New Orleans’ Muffuletta sandwich. Just because we can’t go to the Big Easy this summer doesn’t mean we can’t eat like it. And with sandwiches you can customize for picky eaters.



Here’s the recipe:


Soft Italian Rolls

Deli Meat: We usually use Boar’s Head deli

  • Sliced Prosciutto
  • Genoa Salami
  • Capocolla
  • Turkey (This isn’t included in the traditional recipe, but my kiddos like turkey and we add it as an option).


  • Thin sliced Provolone
  • Pepper Jack (Sometimes we want more spice and add this to the options also).

Muffuletta Spread– We found this one at our family owned grocer in town. I haven’t seen it at the other grocery store chains, but you can order it online. You can also add coleslaw, but my kiddos don’t choose that option so we skip it.

Bon appetit!
