Muffaletta Sandwich (Gluten-Free)
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I foundedÂ The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.View all articles by Scott Adams
This recipe comes to us from Eileen Plichta.
Muffaletta is traditionally served as a sandwich made with a loaf of Italian sesame bread and served with a marinated olive salad, white cheeses and salami.
Makes 6 servings
3 large garlic cloves, crushed
1 cup chopped green olives stuffed with pimientos
1 cup pitted and chopped black-ripe olives or Calamatas
½ cup roasted sweet red peppers, chopped
1 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/3 pound gluten-free salami
½pound provolone cheese
½pound mild white cheese
1/3 pound gluten-free mortadella
1/3 pound gluten-free prosciutto
1 loaf of gluten-free Italian bread, with sesame seeds
Cooks note: The roasted red peppers are Italian-style, available at many Italian delis.
Take one loaf fresh gluten-free Italian bread -usually with sesame seeds (one big round for a traditional Muffaletta or individual sub loaves will do fine for smaller sandwiches). Cut the loaf ( or loaves) in half, and scoop out a little of the inside to make some room. Make the olive salad by combining the olives and roasted pepper, garlic and vinegar. Drizzle some of the olive oil and juice from the olive salad on each side of the open loaf -- use plenty. On the bottom, place some salami, olive salad, provolone, mild cheese, and mortadella. Top with the other half loaf. Slice into wedges (or eat the individual loaves).
