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.

    February 22, 2017 at 10:50 am I've never thought of making salami crisps, what a lovely idea! These would make the perfect canape for dinner parties or even as an easy snack throughout the day. The sauce sounds delicious too, I reckon it'd be fab on chicken too!

    February 22, 2017 at 11:17 am Growing up I ate salami and cream cheese sandwiches for lunch everyday. I think for my next party I'll make these and serve with a cream cheese dip!

    July 15, 2017 at 2:50 pm Mine burned after 20 mins, and weren't crisp at all! What did I do wrong?!?!

      July 15, 2017 at 4:40 pm OH no! I'm so sorry to hear that, Katie! IS it possibly that you oven runs hotter than it states on the dials? I keep a separate thermometer in my oven and ovens in past homes have often registered hotter (or cooler) than they state. Did you use a different kind of salami (although I'm not sure why that would affect it, but I figured I'd ask). I'm sorry I don't have better answers- my oven tests both crisped right up :(

    October 11, 2017 at 3:45 pm Does it matter the thickness of the salumi? I've seen precut slices and the logs. Would it matter?

      October 18, 2017 at 10:44 am Hi Kristin- sorry for the delay, I don't know how I missed this! Mine is pre-sliced from the deli counter. I wouldn't encourage you to slice it too thick as it probably won't get as crispy, but I can't confirm this as I haven't tested it. Please let me know how it goes if you do a different thickness.

    August 22, 2020 at 6:49 pm I love these! I’m not a fan of honey mustard so I made a basil chive cream sauce to dip and it was wonderful! 1/2 cup sour cream with a handful of basil leaves and a tablespoon of chopped chives into a food processor until well blended.
