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.

Recipe adapted from one featured in a Southern Living magazine many years ago. I can’t find a link to it and I tore the page out of the magazine to keep in my recipe book so I don’t know which month/year it was featured.

It will make at least nine, using the quantities of deli meat in the recipe. You can easily scale it up with more slices if needed.

I'm making these for Mardi Gras this year. Any reason not to make them the night before and store covered in the refrigerator?

I would wait to put the dressing on them on the day your are serving them and only chill the skewers overnight.

This is such a clever de-constructed way to serve a muffuletta as an appetizer. Love it!
