Muffeletta Sandwich

This is a traditional New Orleans recipe that my sister-in-law makes all the time. She didn't have it written down, so the amounts are approximate.

1 loaf of dense round bread (I got it at Fry's)
olive oil
2/3 to 3/4 lb. Black Forest ham (I gave you a pound, but you won't need all of it)
5-6 slices Cotto Salami
5-6 slices Provolone cheese (more if you want)
1 to 1-1/2 cups olive salad (You can get jars of this in the deli section; I added some chopped black olives)

Place round bread on a large sheet of heavy duty foil. Slice in half horizontally. Brush cut sides generously with olive oil. Layer ham (make it a nice thick layer, because the bread is so thick), salami and cheese, and pile the olive salad on top. Replace bread top and wrap tightly in the foil. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted. Cut into slices, about 1-1/2 inches thick, using toothpicks to hold the slices together. Tip: an electric knife makes it MUCH easier to slice.
