The Texas Muffuletta - Part II

Thanks, Jason! That was very helpful! However, my "Original" looks better! Look at the beautiful bread!  Ready to make your own? Trust me, it's worth the effort!!!

Schlotzsky's "Original" Sandwich

Makes 1 sandwich, serves 4-6 (or maybe less....)


For the sandwich
1, freshly baked 11" sourdough bun, (see The Texas Muffuletta - Part I)
1/2 ounce garlic caesar salad dressing (store-bought is just fine)
1 ounce grated Parmesan cheese
2 1/2 ounces cheddar cheese, grated
2 1/2 ounces mozzarella cheese, grated
4 ounces honey cured ham slices
2 ounce cotto salami slices
2 ounce genoa salami slices
1, 4.25 ounce can chopped black olives, mixed with 3 minced garlic cloves, 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 2 ounces olive oil, and salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 ounce plain yellow mustard
Shredded iceberg lettuce, about 1/2 head
6 or so tomato slices
Thinly sliced onion, red or white


For the sandwich
Heat oven to 375 degrees. With a sharp bread knife, place one hand on top of the bread, and carefully slice the bread in half horizontally.

Carefully place each half of the bread, crust side down, on two foil-lined baking sheets. Starting from the outside in, squeeze 6 spiral rings of the garlic caesar dressing on each bun. Next, sprinkle each bun evenly with the Parmesan cheese. Now, spread the cheddar cheese evenly over the bottom bun, and the mozzarella evenly over the top bun. Place in the middle of the oven and bake until the cheese has just begun to melt, about 5 minutes. Remove from the oven.

For the bottom, or cheddar bun, spread the marinated olive mixture evenly over the cheddar cheese. Now cover the olive mixture with the ham slices, overlapping slightly. Place back in the oven to let the ham heat up for about 5 minutes.

While the ham warms, for the top, or mozzarella bun, squeeze from the outside in, 5 rings of yellow mustard. Cover the mustard layer evenly with the cotto salami or turkey. Then top evenly with the genoa salami. Remove the bottom or cheddar bun from the oven and put the top or mozzarella bun in the oven to let the meats heat up, approximately 5 minutes.

Finally, on the bottom cheddar bun, cover with the shredded iceberg lettuce, just enough to cover the meat. Now add the tomato slices evenly, and the onion slices.

Now, take the top mozzarella bun and very carefully, slap it on top. Cut into wedges of 4 or 6 and serve with your favorite chips. You're welcome!!!
