How to Cook Salami in a Microwave?

Salami and Cheese in a Microwave

Preparing your sandwich with salami and cheese in a microwave is a really quick process. First, you will need two slices of bread (or toast) which you will cover with two slices of salami – a slice of salami per a slice of bread.

You should place the slices of bread with pieces of salami on a microwave-safe plate and add two slices of cheese over it – 1 piece of cheese per a piece of bread. Then join the pieces together, place the sandwich on a plate and put the plate in a microwave.

The cooking process should not last more than 20 seconds on high temperature, or 30 seconds on a medium temperature.

Still, the cooking time will vary depending on the power of your microwave. Additionally, the thickness of the salami and bread slices will also define the cooking time and the temperature.

Here, you will have to buy some chicken salami or any other good-quality salami. Then slice it into thin pieces. You will need a microwave-safe dish, preferably a plate, and place these slices on the plate.

Prior to placing the slices of salami on a plate, the plate has to be covered by a few layers of paper towel. Their purpose is to absorb any quantity of grease that comes from the salami while it is being cooked.

Then microwave your salami for about 2 minutes at mid-to-high temperature.

These salami chips can be served alone or with some delicious dips.
