pepperoni spread with apricots and walnuts from frederick maryland personal chef and caterer chris spear

Who doesn’t love pepperoni? This flavor-packed spread is great on toasted bread. I like to top it with dried apricots and toasted walnuts. This gives it a little sweetness, a little bitterness and some more crunch. How would you top it?

Pepperoni Spread



8 oz. pepperoni, coarsely chopped

4 oz. cream cheese, room temperature

¼ cup mayonnaise (Dukes or Hellmann’s please)

½ tsp Mexican oregano

1/8-1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 scallions, thinly sliced

Put cream cheese and mayo in the bowl of an electric mixer and paddle for 2 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and mix on med-high for 5 minutes, stopping every few minutes to scrape the bowl.

Served on toasted bread. This works on toasted sourdough with chopped dried apricots and toasted walnuts
