Do you want to see an appetizer disappear in ten minutes? Make a baked salami. It is so easy to make and always the hit of a party. It requires a little time and babysitting, but it can be made up to a day ahead of time. I figure out when I have a two hour block of time to hang out at home and watch TV or a movie, and then I make the salami. I don't set a timer to go off every 15 minutes. I just keep my eye on the clock, and baste it when I remember. It comes out delicious every time.
2 one pound salami
1/2-3/4 cup brown sugar
1 bottle chili sauce
2 Tbsp lemon juice
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Line a roasting pan with foil.
Score each salami.
Mix together remaining ingredients.
Pour over salamis.
Bake in 350 degree oven for 2 hours, basting every 15 minutes.
Broil a few seconds at the end to make it crisper on top.
Cut into one inch cubes and serve on toothpicks.
