Short for muffaletta (or muffuletta), the sandwich invented at New Orleans's Central Grocery in the early 20th century. The sandwich, which is rooted in Sicilian cuisine, comprises several different Italian meats-- typically hard salami, mortadella and capicola-- as well as provolone cheese on a crusty, round, sesame seed-encrusted Italian loaf, but the defining characteristic is its rich olive salad, considered a delicacy in New Orleans and beyond.
"Don't fuggit ta ax fuh extra olive salad onnat muff, brah."
