Salami chips hold a special place in my heart that can't be replaced. Those tasty, salty salami slices bring back savory childhood memories of cooking at Grandma's. My brothers and I would plop slices of salami onto a paper plate, then crowd around the microwave while we watched them nuke to a crisp. Of course, there was the accompanying Worcestershire sauce that my aunt liked to make to go with it. I'm guessing you don't have the same memories of grandma's, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the deliciousness that is the crispy salami chip.
It may sound like a weird childhood food experiment, but baked salami chips are totally legit. Here to show us how to make them right, Delish offers up their expertise - see, told you they were legit. Take a look.
Unknowingly taking my childhood favorite and turning them into an adult low-carb snack, Delish begins the thinly sliced salami chip process by baking slices in the oven at 325°F for twenty minutes. Grab your parchment paper or silicone baking mats, and a large baking sheet to make this appetizer recipe fit for a dinner party.
While the microwave would suffice, this allows the good salami to crisp up nicely and allow the flavors of each chip to develop. Be sure to place them in a single layer so they cook evenly. You can set them on a paper towel when they finish baking to soak up the extra grease, or enjoy as is! This is one of those low-carb recipes that you can't find in a grocery store, unless you go to specialty food shops with various salami products.
Of course, salty snacks wouldn't be complete without the accompanying sauce. While some would prefer a grainy mustard dip, others might enjoy something with a sour cream base. Leaving it all alone would be like eating a tortilla chip without salsa or guacamole, total blasphemy.
That's why Delish goes the extra step to make the perfect salami chip dip pairing. Using a base of mayo, they toss in fresh parsley, red wine vinegar, dried oregano, a bit of dijon mustard, and some salt and pepper to taste. After a good stir, the sauce is ready for the dunking in a small serving bowl.
Now, you're ready to get your chip and dip pairing on. Serve them up at your next dinner party or gorge on the protein filled chip alternatives as a salty snack. Either way you eat them, these low carb chips will give ordinary potato chips a run for their money for a meat-lover's heaven.
