Muffuletta originated in New Orleans, where it’s used as a sandwich filling. Bursting with flavour, it makes an interesting addition to soups, tomato sauce, pizza and pasta and it’s great all on its own. It’s a staple in my fridge; I love to serve it on the original raincoast crisps® or baguette slices, either straight up or partnered with fresh Canadian mozzarella burrata or fresh ricotta.

Pairs with: lesley stowe raincoast crisps® rosemary raisin pecan, , lesley stowe raincoast cheese crisps aged cheddar and harissa, lesley stowe raincoast crisps® cranberry and hazelnut
