I found this recipe in a recipe book I started making MANY years ago.  I would  collect recipes that I liked and that I knew worked.  I read through it recently and found some really good stuff!  This is a recipe that I remember my best friend’s mom making.  I tweaked it a little to make it slightly “healthier.”  But, it is still the same idea and they are delicious.  They are great for a party, a tailgate, or a snack at the lake (perfect for us a couple weeks ago!)  After the muffalettas are prepared, keep them wrapped in the foil until you are ready to serve.  That way, all you have to do is pop them in the oven to reheat. 



2 loaves of Hot and Crusty Bread (found in the freezer section-flavored is fine too-I used garlic bread)

1 cup grated mozzarella cheese

1/2 cup parmesan cheese

1/4 cup pimento stuffed green olives, chopped

2 green onions, chopped

2 tsp. garlic

3/4 cup diced salami (I buy a couple of thick slices from the deli)

3 Tablespoons mayo



Mix all of the ingredients together then spread onto the 2 loaves.  Wrap the loaves in foil then bake at 350 for 25 minutes.  Let cool enough to touch then cut loaves into desired sizes.  I like to cut the loaves then keep them wrapped in the foil until ready to serve.  That makes it very easy to just pop a loaf back in the oven to reheat.
