A Muffuletta is a traditional New Orleans sandwich brought to town by Italian immigrants in 1906.
It consists of Ham, Mortadella, soppressata & Genoa salami topped with melted provolone cheese and an olive salad between two slices of round Sicilian sesame bread. Workers supposedly did not add any cream or mayonnaise so that it could last for the whole day.
