The countdown to Easter is on, but it’s not too late! Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite last-minute ways to please a crowd: with the always-popular charcuterie board. You can easily go sweet or savory or both, so find one that speaks to you and let me know how it turns out!
I find most of my charcuterie items at Trader Joe’s, Aldi or Lidl, Costco (if it’s a larger party), Target, and local grocers. These stores have great, fairly priced meat and cheese options, and many of them offer pre-sliced cheeses to save you some time.
Charcuterie boards don’t need to be expensive! Select options you and your guests will likely love – don’t load up on the fancy, expensive cheeses unless you know they’re sure to be loved.
Consider adding little pick labels to the different cheeses for easy identification.
Simple is beautiful. Start with an egg-shaped platter, and neatly line it with cheeses, meats, and accompaniments of your choice.
