Thanksgiving Charcuterie Board!

Charcuterie Boards make the best appetizers because it allows guests to sample a little of everything awesome on one plate. When planning your board consider adding the following: I suggest a few specialty smoked meats, assorted cheeses, sweet and savory cookies/cracketrs or pastries, candies, jams/jellys, fresh fruit and assorted nuts.

At the end of the day your board is your vision, your creation to share with your guests. Make it delicious, make it interesting, make it fun!!

This recipe includes all of the iitems I used to make the Thanksgiving Charcuterie Board pictured above.

Assemble meat waves (river) first by folding the slices in quarters and inserting them on a long toothpick or short skewer.

Prepare cheese cut outs using leaf shaped fondant/cookie stampers. It’s best to purchase the cheese cut in slices and cut them out at room temperature.

Decide which item you want to use as your focal point to build from. I chose the black grapes because of their unique shape.

On a large platter or cutting board assemble your items. jams and jellies look great in small glass dishes, olives and be placed on toothpicks and quite frankly, you can arrange the items as you see fit. Just try to make everything accessible and try to put items you want eaten together next to each other.
