Napoleon House Muffuletta

In April of 2020, Napoleon House started offering an Eating in Exile Curbside Menu for the first time since closing their doors to protect their guests and staff from the pandemic. The reaction from the public was phenomenal! Life without Napoleon House’s version of this iconic Italian New Orleans sandwich is no life at all! And they started offering Frozen Pimm’s Cups (OMG!) If curbside is too far away for you, make it at home with this authentic recipe.
