The Most Epic Vegetarian Muffuletta Sandwich

Have you ever heard of a muffuletta sandwich? If not, let me give you a brief history behind this super delicious sandwich! Its roots began in southern Italy (originally, muffuletta was a round sesame bread made in Sicily), but the sandwich going by the same name originated in New Orleans, Louisiana and was created by Italian immigrants.  The classic sandwich always includes an olive salad, but it is almost always meat-heavy!

Each family adds their own unique “touch” like chopped capers, strips of sardines, or a simple vegetable (broccoli is often a favourite). I’m adding crisped breadcrumbs for some crunch, along with a dash of truffle oil for dinner-party-worthy sophistication. I used Queen Street Bakery’s White Bean & Grape Skin Sliced Loaf for the breadcrumbs because of its lovely texture and mildly sweet taste. Feel free to use your favourite…
