Sweet and Sour Baked Salami Recipe

Watch your backs, fussy, flaky puff pastries. Slash your prices, conceited caviar. Salami, once considered déclassé in the haute hors d’oeuvres world, is taking pompous parties by storm. A snap to put together, this salty and spicy beef is baked into a sticky, syrupy scene-stealer. Take that, smug smoked salmon.

Bite Me Bit

“Wait up, girls. I got a salami I gotta hide still.”

-Bill Murray in 'Caddyshack'


7 cups kosher beef salami, cut into 1-inch cubes
3½ cups Heinz chili sauce
1 cup apricot jam
2 lemons, juiced
3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce


1) Preheat oven to 350°F.

2) Place cubed salami in a 13x9-inch baking dish.

3) In a medium bowl, whisk chili sauce, jam, lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce. Pour over salami.

4) Bake uncovered, stirring every 20 minutes, for 1½ to 2 hours, until the sauce is reduced by half and thickened. Serve with toothpicks.

Serves 8-10
