In the South, there are 3 things we go wild about our Football, our Southern Heritage, and foods from our Southern Heritage. Easy Muffaletta Sliders are one of those fabulously delicious mouth-watering foods from our Southern Heritage that fit the bill on Gameday.
How can you go wrong with one of the most flavorful recipes the South has to offer? Made with layers of marinated olive salad, giardiniera relish, Genoa salami, Capicola Ham, Swiss cheese, provolone, and mortadella on Slider Buns, then pressed to perfection on a Panini maker till the cheese is hot and gooey.
I am totally excited to share one of my all-time favorite go-to menu items for gameday. When I tell you these Muffaletta Sliders are crazy good, I seriously mean it. They totally bring out the happy side of my Southern American-Italian side in a way I can’t begin to describe.
I decided this time I was going to try out my recipe for Easy Muffaletta Sliders on Slider Buns instead of the Muffaletta bread we usually use. The outcome was awesome since it added a whole new layer of flavor to the sandwich. Can you imagine all the flavors going on here?
I also added a hint of a mayo spicy mustard mixture to our Muffaletta Sliders this weekend, since my husband really loves that extra bit of bold flavor on his Muffaletta Sliders. I know, I know it’s not a traditional condiment on Muffalettas, but it’s his Southern side coming out Y’all, he can’t help himself. Bless his little heart.
To make the Muffaletta Sliders crispy and melty I like using my Panini maker and using the lined side to make them look like they have a little more personality and character. Let me tell you those Slider Buns really had a beautifully lined golden brown character when we were done.
Some of you are probably wondering just how a notably looking Italian Sandwich ended up being a Southern thing? Well, it is the creation of early Sicilian immigrants who came to the Port of New Orléans from the Port of Palermo in the late 1800s and early 1900s. These lovely immigrants settled close to the busy French Market, which would come to be known as Little Palermo or the Italian Sector.
