Mini Hot Muffalettas
a Super Bowl Party Food Favorite
2 packages of large dinner rolls of your choice (we used Sara Lee® Classic White Dinner Rolls)
1/2 lb. sliced ham
1/3 lb. sliced salami
1/3 lb. sliced provolone cheese
1/3 lb. sliced mozzarella cheese
12 oz. jar (2 cups) Italian Olive Salad Mix (we found a premade muffaletta spread in the store! )
Take one package of the bread and cut the rolls in half horizontally. We pulled the individual dinner rolls apart first but you can just leave the bread whole – this is like a more traditional muffaletta loaf. Now layer the ham, mozzarella, salami and provolone in this order on the bottom half of the bread. Spread your olive mix on top of the meats and cheeses.
Replace the top part of the rolls. (Cut through the individual rolls if you started out with whole pack). Repeat this with the second package of rolls. Place the muffaletta loafs in a baking pan or a cookie sheet (or the metal pan the rolls came from) and completely cover with heavy aluminum foil.
Place the covered muffalettas on the highest rank of your oven, leaving space for the heat to circulate between the two pans. Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes.
The recipe could also make a great appetizer. Check out the recipes below for other simple recipes from the “In My Purse” cookbook…
