Baked Salami

I don’t usually eat salami, the salt and fat are big no no’s. However, when I tasted my friend, Elana’s baked salami, I knew that I was in big trouble. It is so delicious, that I promptly convinced myself  that it was pure protein and proceeded to indulge in several bites…and I mean SEVERAL. The entire 2 pound delicacy was demolished by our friends within 10 minutes of its serving. It is so easy to prepare and so popular to serve, that Yale requested that I make it for him to take to his AEPi Frat House, for he and his friends to enjoy during the Super Bowl. I do like to spoil my boy.


  • 2 lb Salami whole
  • 1 jar Heinz Chili Sauce
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 3/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

Score the salami (big x's across the whole thing-don't worry about going too deep).

Mix everything else together

Slowly pour over the salami

Cook at 350 degrees for about 2 hours (you can decide how carmelized/crispy you like it).

Baste often.
