This is how you make salami cups! These are the best bite size cream cheese and artichoke appetizer with salami used as a little cup. You’ve got to bake these and serve them at your next Super Bowl party or just because friends are coming over.
These salami cups are by far my favorite appetizer! I get together with girlfriends once a month to play Bunco and we all make an easy appetizer recipe to share…this one is always a hit! Let me share this fun and tasty recipe with you. This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods, Inc. (originally published 5/16, affiliate links present)
- Not only are these salami cups super easy to make and taste great, but they look really cute. That’s always important when you’re going to a party right?? Let’s start with the main ingredient, the salame.
You can see how I started making them here.
This is what you’re going to need for this salami appetizer:
- Cream cheese
- A jar of marinated artichoke hearts
- As far as making the cups you will need a mini muffin pan and tinfoil.
All you do is press the salami slices into the cups. Then crinkle up pieces of aluminum foil into small foil balls to keep it down. If you don’t it will pop back up when it’s in the oven.
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees
- Bake muffin cups in the middle of the oven for about 8 minutes. You want the edges get just a tad crispy and when you pull the salami cup out of the pan it keeps its form.
- You don’t want to cook them too long or else they will become dry so just test them after the 8 minutes by pulling one out
- take out the foil and see if it stays looking like a salami cup, if not add a minute and check again.
After you bake in the mini muffin tins until salami is crisp, let them cool. Then make your filling. Mix the cream cheese, dill and artichoke filling together and fill your salami cups. If you prefer another type of filling go ahead and let your imagination go.
- This is just to show you how to make salami cups and the rest is really up to you.
- These are two of my favorite fillings so I combined them to make a creamy flavorful filling.
- I mixed a few marinated artichokes in with my room temp cream cheese and then after filling my cups I added a whole piece to the top. Seriously. So. Delicious.
There are endless possibilities of what you could dollop inside though really. Use a cup of finely chopped jarred roasted red peppers if you like too. If you create a new filling let me know below! 😉
