Muffuletta Skewers for #SuperBowl #SundaySupper

Muffuletta Skewers | Magnolia Days

How much do you like party food? It makes me smile just to think about it. I’m certain calories do not count at a party. At least that’s what I’m going to believe. Please do not tell me any different. I love to go to parties for many reasons and the food is one of the main ones. Platters of appetizers = this foodie’s delight. One appetizer I plan to serve at many future gatherings is muffuletta skewers. Olives, peppers, meat and cheese all on a stick. Oh yea!

Think about a muffuletta sandwich. You have an olive salad over deli meats and cheeses inside of bread. Take away the bread and deconstruct the olive salad and there are the components of these skewers. It is also like an Italian antipasto on a stick. Or a meat/cheese/olive tray on a stick. Simple and oh so good.

Then I had another idea for these skewers. It’s a real shame I didn’t think about this until they were gone. I wish I had so I could have taken a photo. Imagine a bowl of mixed greens with one of the skewers on top. It’s a great twist on a way to serve a salad. It would be quite festive and different. Serve it with a red wine vinaigrette and it’s a muffuletta salad.

Speaking of party food…today is Super Bowl XLVII. The Sunday Supper team is sharing recipes perfect for game day or any occasion. I’m thrilled about it because it’s all about party food. Do you see me smiling? Just look at all of them:

    Thanks for sharing such an amazing recipe of your own and other bloggers. Next year, I’ve got to start planning a few weeks ahead so I can tackle some of the dishes. Get it? Tackle! I crack myself up sometimes.

  2. says

    Such a fantastic idea, Renee! I love everything on the skewer and the idea to serve on top of greens is just genius! I want to go party with you :)

  3. says

    Since I am originally from Louisiana and have relatives that live in New Orleans, I’ve known a muffuletta or three and I couldn’t imagine what you were making when I saw the name of your post. I actually spent a few minutes contemplating how you were going to slice one up and skewer it. But it’s all clear now and what a great idea! These are beautiful, healthy and they’ve got to be tasty!

  4. says

    Gorgeous appetizers, and so easy! The repetition of foods and textures on the skewers is what makes this dish one that you can’t take your eyes (or surely your hands) off of!

      Thank you so much for pinning them Brianne. I’m the same way with the ingredients. Years ago I would not have touched most of them. Now I enjoy all of them.

  5. says

    I dig anything skewered. It’s just fun party food. I like to refer to them as food on stabby, pointy things. Always makes me giggle for some reason.

    • says

      Yea, you have to be careful when you are working with skewers. They are quite stabby pointy things. They are fun too and probably what makes you smile.

    • says

      Thanks Tiffany! I’ve been wanting to share the recipe for a while. I figured a New Orleans event would be a good one for it. Plus it being game day foods and such.

  6. says

    Sophisticated and clean. The ideal pass around food at a Super Bowl party or late night gathering with friends. And of course, as usual, your photography is perfect, Renee.

    P.s. Appreciate the education on a muffuletta.

  7. says

    I love muffuletta’s. They remind me of being in NOLA, strolling the streets and eating my face off. This is such a great recipe to make at home.

    • says

      NOLA is quite the eating town (and some drinking too). Great restaurants and the home of the original muffuletta. I really need to get there soon.

    • says

      Yes, next time I’m making these a salad will be involved too. I think it would be a fabulous first course for a dinner party, especially a New Orleans cuisine one.

  8. says

    I love the idea of these skewers! It’s the lazy moose way of putting something together when you don’t feel like making actual sandwiches 😉 My parents would love these, especially with the meats and peppercini.

  9. says

    Even though the superbowl’s over, these still look fantastic! I was just telling my husband the other night how I hadn’t had a muffaletta in years but reeeeallly want one. These look like a great spin on the traditional sandwich.
