NYT bread - muffaletta?

I haven't made any NYT bread yet, and I'm wondering if I could use it for muffaletta? Is the texture too open?

Not too open, Karen. I use it often to make grilled cheese sammies.

I don't see a problem with that. I often make panini sandwiches with NY times bread.

Another option. Make a muffaletta salad and then make some grilled buttered garlic bread topped with your favorite cheese, we do brie...

Oh kades, that sounds so good. I just finished dinner, but I could eat a bunch of that grilled buttered garlic bread topped with brie anyway..........

I seem to be a spoiler. Yet??!!!

Go to this website and read the history of the sandwich. There is also a recipe. Then make your decision, if you haven't already started.

Muffuletta Sandwich with Olive Salad

Simplicity, I've had the great pleasure of eating muffuletta from Central Grocery in NO and it is wonderful. We are planning a picnic in the near future, and I thought a muffuletta would be perfect, as my son is visiting and he also has visited NO and has a love for the food there. I've made my own muffuletta many times, but here in Mexico, I cannot buy a round Italian loaf of bread, so I knew I would have to make my own bread. My question was, would the NYT bread work? It seems to have a more open texture than the bread that is used in NO...thanks for the link, though.

Miss Karen...Make your sammich out of what you want/got...It will work and be good...Sometimes I use french bread...then it's a Frenchuletta So, I guess if you use the NYT bread it will be a New York Timesuletta!!


Have Fun & Enjoy!!!
