Muffalettas and Moonlighting

I am extremely honored and flattered that my friend, Dave, from My Year on the Grill has asked me to guest blog while he and his wife are vacationing in my hometown, New Orleans.

He asked me to post about a New Orleans favorite, Muffalettas. If you have ever enjoyed one then you will know what I am talking about. If you've haven't wrapped your chops around one yet, you don't have to visit New Orleans (although I highly recommend it) to enjoy a Muffaletta. Click the link and visit Dave's wonderful blog and learn how you can enjoy my all time favorite sammich!

Katherine, do you know I have been thinking about muffaletta for about a month now as I needed to bring a truly terrfic sandwich to an outing, hemming and hawing over finding a recipe. Heading over to Dave's as I know if it's your recipe, it's going to be great!

I love olives. I mean love them. When I was a kid, we collected coke bottles and took them to the store for the refund. I always bought a bottle of olives with my money.

So muffalettas are one of my favorite sammies.

Great post!! I'm excited to try the olive salad recipe--I've tried a few others and they never were quite right.

I tried to comment over there, but for some reason I am unable to.
