There’s a great little Italian market in town called Bella’s. You can get some great fixings for a muffaletta sandwich that is out of this world. The aged provolone is especially good.What to get for three
1/4 lb mortadella
1/4 lb hot soppresatta
1/4 lb prosciutto
1/4 lb aged provolone
1/4 lb hot molinari
A jar of hot muffaletta mix or some mild from Bella’s deli case
A baguette
Optional: some taleggio cheese or parmesan adds a nice touch

1. Cut the baguette into three equal pieces. Cut each piece in half lengthwise.

2. Equally divide the above ingredients between the three sandwiches. Spoon on at least 2-4 tablespoons of the muffaletta mix, depending on taste.

3. Bake at 400 degrees until cheese melts and meat starts to turn crisp a little, about 10-15 minutes.
