Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

mini muffuletta sandwiches

prepare these sandwiches the day before the game, picnic, or the derby.  they are quite versatile and will store well in plastic zipper bags, covered tightly in plastic in the refrigerator.  they can be served with a side of coleslaw for a nice lunch.

search for the best whole wheat small dinner rolls available in the market, or slice larger ones in half.  purchase one jar of mixed pickled vegetables and if the vegetables are too large for the sandwiches, pulse them in the food processor until they are finely chopped.  this will prevent them from falling out of the mini rolls.  spread the vegetables and low fat mayo if desired on the rolls and then top with traditional muffuletta meat and cheese.

i used provolone, thin deli turkey and think deli Genoa salami.  other choices could include thin deli ham, thin deli Swiss, thin deli pepperoni, or other favorite combinations.  additional pimiento stuffed Spanish chopped olives could be added for flavor if desired. the recipe also suggests using olive oil and vinegar dressing for enhanced taste.

serve immediately, or store and chill until ready to serve. mini muffulettas will become your new family favorite, since they transport easy and are a great sports event food.
