We have a bar here in Rochester called Windjammers. It's in a part of town called Charlotte (pronounces Sh-are-lot- with are sounding like the word are and the lot sounding like the word lot- which always baffles the non-Rochestarians!). There is lots to love about Windjammers. The dollar beer shelf. Their absolutely killer wings. And their Salami Chips.
This was a discovery that came to light when we had a work outing that involved enjoying a beverage and some appetizers on the perfect summer afternoon in their outdoor seating area. When salami appetizers that looked like chips came out, I was pretty surprised to see them. I didn't know this was a thing- but I certainly wasn't sad about it!
So now years later, I finally got my act together and made some. I don't know what took me so long because the were so insanely easy and an addictive salty snack! They have the perfect amount of crispiness and that salty flavor that we all crave once in a while. And the sweetness of the honey mustard sauce that I serve them with them adds the perfect amount of balance to this snack.
Tips for making Baked Salami
- Be sure to line your pan for easier clean up.
- I laid all the pieces of salami in a single layer on the pan. They will shrink a bit as they bake.
- Allow the chips to cool a bit (so you don’t burn your hands) and then move them to a paper towel lined plate to drain, as they do get a bit greasy.
- If you have approximately a minute and thirty seconds to spare, you can whisk together some honey and mustard to make the awesome honey mustard sauce.
Frequently asked questions about this Salami Chips recipe
- Can you freeze salami chips? I wouldn’t advise it as freezing could adversely affect the texture.
- How long do salami chips last? They last around a week in an airtight container in the refrigerator and the sauce will last a couple weeks in the refrigerator.
- Is it better to use genoa salami or hard salami? Either option will work, it just depends which you prefer. I went with hard salami because it was a bit smaller and I could fit more onto my pan.
- What kind of prepared mustard is best for the honey mustard? I’ve found yellow mustard is best. I also tested dijon but it was much too spicy.
