Excellent recipe, but for a interesting change, use hard salami. The chips are bigger, and the taste is awesome.
I grew up on these! we used to make them in the microwave by placing the pepperoni on a plate on top a few layers of paper towels to absorb the grease. Just nuke em until they're crispy... maybe even a little burnt! They're awesome! Since they have a bit of a kick to them, i love to eat them with cream cheese... double yummm!
I like to top mine with a dollop of sour cream and garnish with fresh chopped basil, it looks great and adds the smooth coolness this appetizer needs!
You can also get the same crunch by putting the pepperoni on a plate with a double layer of paper towels and microwaving it. The time depends on how many pieces and how powerful your microwave. I normally do 3-4 of the larger slices for about 30 seconds.
I love my crunchy pepperoni and add it to almost everything. I crumble it in refried beans, on top of baked potato soup, or just add the whole slices to grilled cheese sandwiches to add a little meaty taste. :)
This was fantastic. I could hear our arteries slammin' shut! I baked both the pepperoni and salami at the same time and both came out perfect. Thanks
Made these to go with a cheese and cracker platter for the holidays. Added a nice crispy crunch.
These are yummy... I used Kroger brand turkey pepperoni and only baked them for 10 minutes. I sprayed the pepperoni lightly with non-fat cooking spray and then sprinkled fresh cracked pepper on them before baking. Next time I think I might just bake for 5 minutes and then take them out and sprinkle the pepper because the natural fats will pool on the top and make the pepper stick.
This is a great alternative for those of us low carbing it. I am not sure if those of you without dietary restrictions ;) will be as appreciative of these, but let me tell you - they are great if you are craving something crunchy - besides celery! Thank you!
I make mine in the microwave on high for 30 seconds and sprinkle a bit of cayenne pepper on for a bite. These are great for low carbers.
Very good. This recipe is a reminder to know your oven and keep an eye on it. Literally a minute or less can define the outcome. That being said, I love this. Super easy and super good. After playing around a bit I find fresh ground black pepper and a light bit of garlic salt sprinkled on beforehand my fave. Sometimes but not always when done I sprinkle a lite dusting of parmesan on also. Works for me.
