The holidays are right around the corner and that means fun eats are always on the menu! I absolutely love whipping up charcuterie board and on today’s post I’m tell you EXACTLY what I used in this beauty! They’re so easy to put together, beautiful to look at and most importantly, delicious! Luke and I could eat these board just for dinner and sometimes, we do! I think they are the perfect appetizer to have out this holiday season for your family or small gathering with friends.
When putting together a charcuterie, always make sure to have enough variation. When I style mine I layer with different types of foods: fruit, cheese, crackers, meats and then fill in the smaller spaces with nuts! A good mix between salty and sweet. Make sure to PACK IT ON!!
I’ll be posting an Instagram REEL today showing you a step-by-step video on how I made this board. See below for a list of all the goodies I used as well as a roundup of my favorite boards and trays. I LOVE my new extra long board – only $29!! Shop it here!
