A Goat Cheese and Muffaletta Sandwich Recipe

A Goat Cheese and Muffaletta Sandwich Recipe
When I think about sandwiches, I always check to see what I have in my pantry and refrigerator. How could I use the ingredients together? A day-old baguette was the basis for this sandwich. I looked at it and said, "What if I rubbed it with garlic oil and filled it with goodies?" The result is this rich and tasty sandwich that is perfect for a Meatless Monday meal.

Crispy Goat Cheese and Muffaletta Sandwich Recipe

Ingredients for one sandwich:

4 inch piece of French baguette (This was day-old bread from my local bakery.)
Olive oil
Garlic powder
goat cheese (I used the Kirkland brand.)
Italian blend shredded cheese (I used Kraft.)
muffaletta olive salad (I used That Pickle Guy brand.)


Use a serrated knife to slice the baguette horizontally. Leave a hinge. Do not cut the baguette all of the way through. Brush the crust with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic powder. Make a boat out of aluminum foil and place the bread inside the boat. Have the shiny side facing the bread.
Open the bread to add the fillings. Spread goat cheese on the top, inside part of the bread. Layer muffaletta olive salad on the bottom half. Sprinkle a generous amount of Italian blend shredded cheese on top of the muffaletta. Place the boat and sandwich into a 400 degree F. oven. Heat for 10-12 minutes. Press the two halves together and let the sandwich stand for 3 minutes.

A delicious sandwich deserves to be part of a soul-satisfying meal. The creaminess of the cheeses and pungency of the muffaletta in this sandwich pairs well with a couple of soup recipes. These soups may be made as vegetarian soups, if you use vegetable broth. The Easy Vegetable Soup has a lot of veggies and the tomato broth tastes wonderful with this sandwich. You can keep It low carb or add as many carbs as your heart desires.

If you want a richer soup, try my Mini-Pumpkin Soup Recipe. Filled with the flavors of fall, but available all year round, Mini-Pumpkin Soup is especially fine with this sandwich. Like vegetable soup, pumpkin soup is filled with vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Whatever soup or side that you use, take the time to enjoy your sandwich!
