Real N'awlins Muffuletta

Rating: Unrated
These gigantic sandwiches were invented a century ago at Sicilian Deli here in New Orleans. The spicy, tangy olive salad is what really sets this meat and cheese sandwich apart. A genuine muffuletta should be made on oven-fresh Italian bread topped with sesame seeds. Be sure and use the highest-quality ingredients available; it really makes a difference! Since you're going to all the trouble of making the olive salad, consider doubling the recipe so you'll have some extra waiting around for when you get another muffuletta craving -- it keeps for at least a month! Note: Use round bread loaves for real muffuletta.

Slow Cooker Sausage with Sauce

Rating: Unrated
A warm easy meal made even easier in the slow cooker. These sausages may be served in sandwiches, or over rice.

Meatball Sub Sandwich

Rating: Unrated

Meatball subs in soggy, falling-apart buns are just the worst. That's why we recommend toasting our Tailgaters Brat Buns for this recipe. The heftier, toasty bread will stand up to all that meaty, marinara, mozzarella goodness.
