Super Bowl Antipasti Bites

"[This] is a twist on Antipasta Plates, which is our Antipasti Bites. So yummy, and you just can't stop at one!" ~ Jennifer Loiseau

Turning an antipasto plate into a bite-sized cup is sure to be a hit while you’re entertaining.

The saltiness of the salami, freshness of the vegetables and the creaminess of the cheese is sure to put a party in your mouth in just one bite!

Antipasti Bites
Makes: 20
Prep: 10 minutes
Bake: 8 to 12 minutes

20 slices Genoa Salami
1 green pepper, seeded and chopped
1 roasted red pepper, chopped
3 ounces olives (use any assortment of olives)
5 ounces Asiago cheese (mozzarella also may be used)
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chiffonade

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place each salami slice in a cupcake pan to form a cup shape. Take small pieces of aluminum foil and form a ball to place in the middle of each salami cup to help keep its shape.
Put the salami in the oven and bake for 8 to 12 minutes; be sure to check often. Once they start browning take them out of the oven.
Allow for the salami to set in the cupcake pans to cool to help keep the shape.
While the salami is baking, cut up the green pepper, roasted red pepper, olives and Asiago cheese.
Place all ingredients into a large bowl and stir; season to taste.
Spoon mixture into the salami cups and garnish with basil. Repeat until all the salami cups are
made, then enjoy!

* This recipe is very versatile, so feel free to use any vegetable you’d like along with an assortment of olives and cheeses.
