Cured, dried, deli meats

Spice up your diet

Pepperoni Chips


Your favorite pepperoni or even your favorite thin sliced dried meat/sausage



  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Place pepperoni on parchment lined sheet pan and bake for 18-20 minutes, flipping them halfway through.
  3. Let cool. Chips will get crisp once cooled down.

Eat immediately. They do not stay crisp, but if you have leftovers you can re-crisp them in the oven for 3-5 minutes at 300 degrees.

How to Make a Beautiful Charcuterie Board


  • 1 flat wooden cutting board or plank
  • 2-4 different cheeses (about 2-3 ounces of each)
  • 2-4 different cured meats (2 ounces of each)
  • 2 ounces of your favorite whole grain mustard


  1. When arranging your board, be sure all your components are different textures and cuts. For example: Sliced prosciutto, diced ham chunks, sliced and rolled up mortadella, crumbled cheese, diced cheese, shaved cheese, etc.
  2. Place each component on the board with some space in between each one. Do not cram everything right next to each other unless you only have a small platter. Small platter directions below. If using mustard, serve mustard in a small serving bowl and place alongside with meats and cheeses.
  3. If using a small board arrange meats and cheeses as close as possible starting from the inside of the plate to ensure the components are placed evenly throughout the board.

Charcuterie ideas: prosciutto, salami, mortadella, pastrami, bresaola, deli turkey and ham chunks work, well too! When selecting your meats choose your favorite deli meats or try something new. When selecting your cheeses try to get a combination of each of the following styles: soft/mild cheese, hard sharp cheese, funky cheese, or a specialty cheese. Get creative and have fun!
