Crispy salami chips are a smart snack with this easy, homemade recipe that turns simple salami slices into savory chips. Quick and satisfying.
It’s afternoon tea time, and sometimes I get a craving for a little snack along with my tea. That’s when my go-to, solution comes to the rescue—crispy salami chips.
These babies are one of my favorite secrets in my low carb quick bites arsenal. Satisfying that snack itch without the guilt, they’re like my own little salty crispy bites of joy.
So, if you’re on the hunt for a savory, low carb snack, try my crispy salami chips—because life’s too short for boring snacks!
You’ll only need one ingredient: Salami!
Today I have Genoa salami from Boar’s Head. Boar’s Head is gluten free. You can go with your favorite salami, just make sure it’s gluten free.
Aim for thin, uniform slices—about 1/16 to 1/8 inch thick—for even baking and a satisfying crunch.

Set the oven rack in the middle of the oven. Then preheat your oven to 425℉.
Now place six salami slices on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet to keep salami from sticking and make cleanup easier. Allow for space between the slices.
Pro tip: When I want to make a bigger batch, I use my humongous baking sheet so I can fit more slices!
Bake for 5 minutes.
Then flip them over and bake for another 4-5 minutes.
Once they’re golden-browned around the edges, place the slices on a paper towel-lined plate and let them cool for 10 minutes. While they might remain quite pliable when taken out of the pan, they’ll become crisp as they continue to cool.
Since ovens vary, monitor the salami closely to prevent burning.
Pro tips and recipe notes
Is it possible to add a cheese topping? Absolutely! Salami and cheese make a fantastic pair. To ensure a perfect melt, I recommend placing shredded cheese (I have tried aged cheddar cheese) on each salami slice and bake for approximately 3-4 minutes. Delicious results guaranteed!
Can I add seasoning to the salami before baking? Absolutely! Experiment with your favorite seasonings like black pepper, garlic powder, or paprika for extra flavor.
Can I make these ahead of time? Yes, prepare them in advance and store in an airtight container. Reheat briefly in the oven for optimum crispiness.
Can I use this recipe for a charcuterie board? Yes, oven-baked salami crisps make a fantastic addition to charcuterie boards. Pair them with cheeses and dips for a delightful spread.
Can I use different meats for crisps besides salami? Absolutely! Experiment with other cured meats like pepperoni or chorizo for unique and tasty variations.
Can I serve salami crisps with dips? Yes, pair them with your favorite dips, such as mustard, aioli, or cream cheese, for an extra layer of flavor.
This recipe not only caters to your low carb needs but also introduces a snack that’s quick, easy, and undeniably delicious. And they would make a simple oven-baked salami snack for parties.
