Easy and Delicious Hasselback Salami Recipe

My family had an amazing but exhausting day today. I want to share more about it with you, but it'll have to wait until tomorrow. In the meantime, I wanted to share this absolutely delicious dish I made for supper once we got back.

I had some salamis that I wanted to prepare for dinner. I had about half a bottle of ketchup and part of a bottle of maple syrup that I can't bring with me on the plane due to liquid restrictions. So I decided to combine those and make this delicious hasselback salami, like hasselback potatoes but with salami instead.

Feel free to use whatever type of uncut salami you have; I used turkey salami, but I've made this before with beef salami. This works great with even the cheapest salami.

Though my kids made funny faces when they heard how I was planning on making it, even the biggest skeptics decided that it was so awesome that I have to share it on my blog.

I apologize for the quality of picture; I only took it after the kids already devoured about half.

Easy and Delicious Hasselback Salami Recipe

3 unsliced salami sausages
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup maple syrup or date syrup or honey
1 garlic clove
1 teaspoon salt
Hot pepper to taste (optional)

1. Slice your salamis nearly all the way through, leaving the bottom attached. Slice this the entire length, making each slice approximately 1/2-1 centimeter apart from the other.

2. Place your salamis on a lined baking sheet.

3. Mix the rest of the ingredients together. Pour over the salamis, rub all over, so that they're pretty evenly coated.

4. Bake at 350 until they start to brown and get crispy, between 30-45 minutes. Periodically, move in the sauce so over parts get covered and get crispy. Hint, I just took the baking tray and gave it a shove and let the salamis roll over. No need to get your hands dirty.

5. When it looks as crispy as you want, remove from the oven, slice, and serve.


Ever made something like this before? Does it look like a recipe you or your family would enjoy?

Bake until crispy, rolling around in the sauce. About 30 minutes
