The most delicious open faced Genoa Salami sandwich


As we all know, the holidays are a very busy time of year. There are always lots of family gatherings, work parties, shopping and the list goes on. It’s an easy time to head to the drive thru because you’re just too busy and don’t have time to make a delicious meal with your favourite foods on the fly…BUT what if I had a recipe for you? One that is quick, easy and includes some delicious fine foods. It’s easy to make for yourself, the whole family or even guests!

After eating holiday party food it’s hard for me to eat the same old recipes we always gravitate towards. I’m always looking to bring the party home after mowing down delicious charcuterie spreads with cured meats and fine cheeses. You can bet that when I walk by the deli section at the grocery store I’m reaching for some yummy Mastro genoa salami to feed my cravings. They have the best quality cured meats that I just can’t get enough of. I thought I’d whip up something fun and easy that hits the spot this holiday season. What did I come up with? Prepare your mouth to water!

Open Face Genoa Salami Sandwich

Ingredients

Package of Mastro Genoa Salami
