Muffuletta on a Stick makes a simple, elegant, and fun appetizer! They’re perfect for any party, can be made ahead of time and they’re super simple to make!
MUFFULETTA ON A STICK
Turning a muffuletta into an appetizer on a stick is a fun way to entertain. The novelty of it makes it special and easier to eat than a 4-inch tall muffuletta sandwich. As well, with so many people doing a low carb diet now, they can stick to their eating plan even at a party.
You can make these up to four hours in advance. Cover and refrigerate them. This will free up time to prep whatever else needs to be done.
