Brie, Jam and Salami Sandwich
Just in time for back to school, I’m sharing this super easy Brie, Jam, and Salami Sandwich! Loads of deliciousness in every bite.
Did you know August is National Sandwich Month? A grilled cheese is my go-to sandwich, but I was inspired to shake things up with an easy Salami Sandwich Recipe.
Brie, Jam and Salami Sandwich
I was on holiday up in Northern Minnesota with my sisters at my aunt and uncle’s lovely lake house. As we prepped a wheel of Brie to bake in a bread bowl, my Uncle Bob commented that he adored a Brie, Jam and Salami Sandwich. With fig jam, one of my sisters chimed in.
I knew I’d have to make this 4 ingredient Brie sandwich. I also toyed with making a sandwich featuring warm, gooey Brie, like this Turkey Bacon Grilled Cheese Sandwich, but nothing beats a gourmet sandwich you can whip up in 30 seconds!
What is Salami?
Salami or Salame (Italian spelling) is an uncooked, cured sausage that is safe to eat due to how it is processed. Seasoned with garlic and other flavorings, they’re typically coarser and drier than other sausages. Made of pork and beef unless labeled kosher, and then they’re pure beef.
What are the Popular Types of Salami?
According to the Food Lover’s Companion (affiliate link), here are the main types of salami:
- Genoa – What I used for this sandwich. Made of pork, veal, pepper, garlic, red wine.
- Cotto – Also readily available. Made of pork, beef, garlic, and peppercorns.
- Milano – Made of pork, beef, pork fat, garlic, pepper, white wine.
- Napoli – Made of pork, beef, red pepper, black pepper.
- Danish – Made of finely ground pork and veal, lightly spiced.
- French – Made of pork and beef, pepper, and herbs.
- German – Made of smoked, finely ground pork and beef.
- Kosher – Made without pork, cooked and semisoft.
Tips for Making This Brie Jam and Salami Sandwich
On the day I was recipe testing, my oldest stopped by to have me sign some paperwork for a house he’s purchasing. When I mentioned I was making sandwiches, he commented that he happened to be hungry. How convenient! Not sure if he’d want jam on his savory sandwich, he said he preferred that to mustard. Excellent. And that happened to be his verdict, too.
- I bought presliced Genoa salami, but I think this would be marvelous with thicker sausage slices from an Italian deli.
- This is a handy recipe (if you can call it that!) when you have some leftover Brie from entertaining, or just go ahead and buy a small round and designate it for a Brie, Jam and Salami Sandwich! Perfect for brown-bagging.
- Use your favorite jam or preserves. I prefer one that’s not overly sweet.
- If the sweet and savory combination isn’t your thing, use a nice smear of Dijon mustard instead.
P.S. I bet this would be amazing on my Homemade Pretzel Rolls!!

This is a really versatile sandwich recipe—mustard or jam…..brie or another soft cheese…salami or ham or turkey…..(I really want to try this with turkey……yum)!!!
I love simple sandwiches. This one sounds like a winner.
That’s my kind of sandwich, Liz, although I would probably like thicker sliced salami from a butcher. The jam is interesting and I can’t wait to try it! Thanks!
I love a touch of sweetness from fruit in sandwiches. This combo sweet and salty sounds so good!
I love the combination, sweet, salty, creamy – yummy! I also love those rolls you made the sandwiches with.

Dear Lizzy, I just love a good salami sandwich, though it is rare that I indulge in one. This looks great. xo Catherine
I have a chipotle fig jam that would be great with this! Thanks for sharing – it looks so good.
Sweet and savory is always a hit and on a sandwich like this it’s a Winner! Delicious.
I always enjoy eating sandwiches like yours. Instead of a roll I like to use rustic German rye bread.
I love mixing savory and sweet, too. 🙂
Whether it’s on your pretzel rolls or anything else, brie and jam is fantabulous! Congratulations to your son’s purchase of a home. (The doctor?)
