Muffuletta on a Stick makes a simple, elegant, and fun appetizer! This antipasto is perfect for any party! Easy make-ahead recipe.



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.

Muffuletta Sandwich Recipe


  1. Cotta salami
  2. Pepperoni
  3. Ham
  4. Pimento stuffed green olives
  5. Black olives or another pickled pepper
  6.  Cheese

Really you can substitute any meat, cheese, or pickled vegetable for these. However, these are classic muffuletta ingredients.

When choosing items and building your skewers think about using different colors, shapes, and flavors. Next, simply create an appealing pattern with your ingredients.
