These get gobbled up at every party I host: Easy Salami Appetizer
Sometimes you just need a super easy-to-make appetizer recipe that isn’t all that fancy. I find that this recipe is perfect for sporting event parties (though I served them at my Christmas party last year too). Everyone likes salami, and these are perfect for just picking up and eating quickly while holding a beverage in the other hand. Someone long ago shared the 3-ingredients that make the appetizer happen, I tried it out on some party guests, and I’ve been making it ever since.
Here’s how it works: a piece of salami, a smudge of cream cheese and a piece of pepperoncini (they’re found in a jar near the pickles).
Fold ’em up, fasten with a toothpick, and that’s it– just pile them onto a platter. For a big party, I like to buy the salami in bulk at Costco, and you can pick up a big tub of spreadable cream cheese there too. As far as the pepperoncini go, I cut out the seeds and just put a little piece of seedless pepperoncini on top. If you’re not familiar w/ pepperoncini, they’re not overly spicy like jalapeno… just spicy enough to add some interest and flavor to the appetizer.
It’s easy to eat a lot of these in a short amount of time… so they’ll be a popular choice for munching at your party. In other words, make a lot of them!
P.S. If they don’t get gobbled up the day you make them, pop them in a zip bag and munch on them for a couple days after that.
