Sweet Salami in Pan

Howdy, Howdy, Hiddy, Ho – Happy “I can’t wait to share on of my favorite recipes with you” day!!

This recipe is for sure one of my very favorites!!

Perfect for a light dinner paired with a crunchy baguette and a glass of wine.  Ohlala!

It’s also my “go to” appetizer for entertaining.  Everybody goes bananas for it!!!

The best part is that it is quick, simple and always delicious!!

So without further ado I present my recipe for Sweet Salami…

Sweet Salami Ingredients

To Make The Magic Happen, This is What You’ll Need:  Hebrew National Salami, Mango Jam, Brown Sugar and Honey Mustard.

Four ingredients – You’re welcome.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cutting Salami

Slice your salami into thin strips, stopping just before you cut all the way through.  Por favor.

Salami Cut

Your salami should look like this when you are finished slicing.

Again, do not cut all the way through.

Set salami aside and let him know you’ll be right back.

Adding Brown Sugar

In a mixing bowl add the brown sugar…

Adding Mustard

Add the honey mustard.

I always use Boar’s Head Honey Mustard.  Just a suggestion (that you should take).

Mixed Ingredients

Add the mango jam…

Whisk it all together so everyone gets to know each other really, really well.

Cut salami in pan

Place your salami into a small baking dish.

Adding glaze to salami

Go and wash your hands – not that anyone would know, but if you don’t that’s gross so please wash your hands!!

Pour entire mango mixture onto the salami with complete abandon.

Glazing Salami 1

This is where the clean hands are important.

Dig right into the ooey, gooey mixture and pack it into all the nooks and crannies.

This mixture is so good you could lick your fingers, just wait until you are finished – thank you.

Glazing Salami 2

This is what it looks like – it’s a dirty job but someone has to do it.

There you have it.  All ready to pop into the oven.  One hour at 375 degrees will bring this recipe to perfection every time.

You will notice that the ends of the salami will darken quite a bit.  Don’t panic.  It is supposed to do that.  That’s the best part.  🙂

Toothpicks

If you are serving this as an appetizer cut the salami slices into quarters, put on a serving plate, drizzle the sauce lightly over the salami and serve with toothpicks.  I like the toothpicks with the colorful fuzzy’s on the end.  It just makes it fun to eat and who doesn’t love fun to eat food???

One a side note…You can make this ahead of time and store it in the fridge until you are ready to bake it off.  The bake time stays the same.

Until next time…A hot dog at the ballgame beats roast beef at the Ritz.  ~Humphrey Bogart

Be blessed, stay blessed and remember if you don’t laugh at yourself someone will do it for you!

Love, L.
