Ingredients

  • 24 (1/8-inch to 1/4-inch) slices Italian dry Genoa salami (about 4 ounces)
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil leaves

Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Line 2 heavy large baking sheets with aluminum foil. Arrange the salami in a single layer over the baking sheets. Bake until the salami slices are amber brown, watching closely to ensure they brown evenly, about 15 minutes. Transfer the salami crisps to a paper towel-lined baking sheet to absorb the excess oil. Set aside to cool.

Spoon a dollop of sour cream on top of each salami crisp. Sprinkle the basil over and serve.
