For the croutons:

  • 1/2 baguette cut up into half inch cubes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 tablespoons parmesan cheese freshly grated
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

For the Antipasto Bites:

  • 24 slices salami ( your choice of meat and spice level)
  • 1/2 cup marinated mushrooms
  • 1 cup marinated bocconcini
  • 1/4 cup sweet mini grilled peppers
  • 1/2 cup grilled artichokes
  • 1 cup heirloom tomatoes
  • 1 x Hemp Basil Pesto or store-bought pesto


  1. Preheat the oven to 375.
  2. On a parchment lined baking sheet, toss the croutons ingredients and place them in the oven for 15 minutes until crisp.
  3. Remove the baking sheet and keep the oven on.
  4. Take a standard muffin pan and place 2 slices of salami into each muffin cup cavity pressing them down to form a cup shape.
  5. Bake the salami for about 15 minutes until it starts to shrink and get darker in color.
  6. Remove the muffin tin and let the salami cups cool down for 10 minutes.
  7. Dab off any oil on the surface of your salami cups.
  8. Remove the salami cups and start assembling your toppings to your taste, and then drizzle with some basil pesto. Enjoy :)

Recipe Notes

  • You can experiment with a mini muffin pan but I suggest sticking to a standard muffin pan just because it’s a good size for one serving and the cavity will be big enough to fit the antipasto filling.
  • Make sure to form a DOUBLE layer of salami when making the cups. A single layer will not hold any filling.
  • Don't freak out when you see the salami cups coming out of the oven! They will look quite oily at that point, so just grab some kitchen paper and dab them lightly to absorb as much of that oil as possible.
