This mortadella sandwich is easy to put together and provides plenty of flavor to impress. Great for a meal or cut into pinwheels as a fabulous appetizer. You can even use a baguette for a more substantial mediterranean sandwich.
I love sandwiches. I love making sandwiches and I love eating them. With so many different flavor combinations to choose from, the varieties may be endless.
My husband loves it when I make him a sandwich, whether it’s a breakfast bagel or an Italian grinder. Today I am sharing another favorite sandwich I make for him, this Mediterranean wrap with mortadella.
Why this recipe rocks
This sandwich is so crazy easy to make and so full of flavor. It really is a simple way to wow your spouse or guests with a sandwich!
Whether you are enjoying lunch at home or packing up a meal for a picnic, this mediterranean wrap will certainly aim to please. Classic mediterranean flavors include goat cheese and herbs. Mortadella is the meat I used and added the crunch of radishes.
Also tucked inside you will find artichoke hearts and sun dried tomatoes. It really is a delicious treat.
I used pita rounds, but you can also use any flat bread. If you want, you can roll them up, cut them into pinwheels and serve as an appetizer.
Ingredients you need
- Marinated artichoke hearts: Be sure to drain the artichokes before using them. If you aren’t a fan of artichoke hearts, you can also use kalamata olives.
- Fresh herbs: I use a variety of herbs, but you can stick with just one if you prefer. My favorites are basil, mint and tarragon.
- Mortadella: Similar to bologna, mortadella is popular in Italy as well as the middle east. You can find all beef varieties, pork or a mixture of meats. Some have pistachio, too.
- Sun dried tomatoes: I prefer sun dried tomatoes packed in oil, but you can use the plain variety, as well. If using the oil variety, again be sure to drain them first.
- Spreadable cheese spread: I used garlic and herb Boursin, but you can also use another flavor or plain goat cheese.
- Pita bread: You can also use any flat bread like lavash or naan.
- Peperoncinis (optional)
