Simple Salami Skewers   

Perfect as a crowd-pleasing keto appetizer or a main course if you eat a few, these party-ready skewers couldn't be easier to make. This recipe hails from the The DIRTY, LAZY, KETO 5-Ingredient Cookbook, in which author Stephanie Laska promises, “Simple Salami Skewers make a beautiful presentation on the plate. Food served on a stick looks fancy (and is more fun to eat). I serve these in a variety of ways: on top of a bed of shredded cabbage (like a salad), with a side of steaming-hot cauliflower rice (for dinner), or on a platter as an appetizer for parties. Personally, I love keto snacks I can eat with my fingers. Simple Salami Skewers are so delicious and easy to make, even your kids (or picky spouse) will gobble them up!”

  • Preheat the oven to 420°F. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Lay the salami slices on the prepared baking sheet and top each with equal amounts (in order) of chicken, cheese, tomato, then basil.
  • Fold the salami around ingredients (keeping the cheese centered) and poke a skewer through the midsection to keep it secure. Thread equal amounts of folded salami onto six skewers, with 1⁄4-inch space between each salami so they are not touching.
  • Arrange the skewers on the baking sheet spaced 1 inch apart and bake for 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
