Muffuletta Style Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwiches | www.tasteandtellblog.com
First of all, I just want to mention that this will be the last Saturday with Rachael Ray for 2010!!  Since next Saturday is Christmas, and the Saturday following is New Year’s Day, I figured a Rachael Ray recipe will be the last thing on your mind those days!  But it will be back in January.

And yes – like I said yesterday, another sandwich.  I’m blaming it on pregnancy.  Not that I don’t have an appetite – because I certainly do have one – but I’m just so tired lately that I have no will power or motivation to make dinner.  I’m slipping into my 3rd trimester already – I just hope I can find some energy to make it through!!

This sandwich really is a winner.  I liked yesterday’s sandwich, but today’s was even better!  I wasn’t sure I was going to like the relish, because I’m not really an arugula fan, but it was just perfect.  I couldn’t find the hot soppressata, and the girl that was at the deli counter that day was just filling in, so she didn’t know a good substitution.  So I just got something that looked good and went with some mortadella.  Not the same, but it sure was delicious!!

Total time
Muffuletta sandwich meets grilled ham and cheese for this great twist on a delicious sandwich.
Serves: 4 servings
  • 1 cup giardiniera (hot pickled vegetable salad), drained
  • 1 cup packed baby arugula leaves
  • ¼ cup pitted green olives
  • 8 slices pullman-style white bread
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 8 thick slices provolone cheese
  • 8 thin slices proscuitto cotto or boiled ham
  • 8 thin slices hot soppressata
  • 8 thin slices genoa salami
  1. Using a food processor, grind the giardiniera, arugula and olives.
  2. Coat 1 side of the bread slices with the butter. Build each sandwich as follows: a bread slice (buttered side out), giardiniera relish, a cheese slice, 2 prosciutto slices, 2 soppressata slices, 2 salami slices, another cheese slice, more relish and another bread slice (buttered side out).
  3. Preheat a griddle or cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add the sammies and cook, turning once, until the cheese melts, 6 to 8 minutes.

    Yum! This sounds fabulous.. there's nothing wrong with eating lots of sandwiches and I think you have the greatest excuse of all! Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. Tasha says:

    I've never been a ham (or lunchmeats in general)kind of person, yet I like muffulettas! It must be the olives and giardinera.

    I with you on the lacking motivating thing (this week anyways) when it comes to dinners, so I need more quick ones like this. By the way, when I read about you entering your 3rd trimester, and I had to look at the calendar and was surprised to realize I already am too.

    You are so good to still be cooking this far into your pregnancy .. All I wanted to do was sleep! But its hard to sleep when you have other little ones to take care of : ) Looking forward to more Rachel Ray Saturdays in 2011!

    I don't make sandwiches often enough and need to start adding some to my rotation. This sandwich sounds packed with unbelievable amounts of flavor.

    Congrats on being in the 3rd trimester. You're in the home stretch now!
