It’s sandwich eating time up in here! O.K. here’s the run down on what’s happening in my house.
Big Goo’s on vacation, and since he’s king of sandwiches I decided to make him a big ole sandwich to snack on for a couple of days.
Normally, Big Goo sandwiches consist of roasted turkey and cheese with a little light mayo and that’s it!
Yep, I like to keep the sandwiches simple most days, but this is a special occasion people, and what better way to bring on the festivities than with a Creole Muffuletta.
I purchased fresh bread just baked today, and lots of muffuletta spread from my deli.
I removed some of the filling out the bread, because Big Goo likes it that way.
I told you we’re celebrating so I will allow him to have his way for the next couple of weeks.
It’s time to assemble the sandwich, layer loads of muffuletta spread on bottom bread, you want this to soak in the bread.
Then top the spread with loads of deli meat and cheeses. Use whatever deli meats you prefer, I used black forest ham and Geno salami because that’s what Big Goo likes.
Make sure you finish the top bread off with more muffuletta spread so we have a flavor explosion in every bite!
Press the sandwich down, wrap in foil and bake!
I prefer my sandwich not baked, but again, I repeat, it’s all about what Big Goo likes this week, which is always a hot sandwich.
It’s time to eat people, and I am not sure how long this catering to Big Goo thing is going to last, I give it about 24 more hours and I’ll be done!
