A Thanksgiving charcuterie board or an appetizer platter will have all your friends and family grateful before the dinner is served. It will allow you to show off your creative plating skills and give your guests a taste of some delicious fun bite-sized holiday foods.
Not only are charcuterie boards full of all kinds of tasty foods, but they are also visually stunning. They make for a fantastic edible Thanksgiving decoration! Plus, a charcuterie board doesn’t take much time to put together - all you need is a bit of inspiration, a pinch of imagination, and some delicious foods.
The key to a great Thanksgiving charcuterie board is to have a variety of savory and sweet foods. You want there to be something for everyone, so choosing a variety of fall-themed colors, textures, and flavors is essential.
Brie can be an excellent centerpiece for your holiday charcuterie. It takes no time to bake a wheel of brie and top it with pistachios, pomegranate seeds, and fresh rosemary.
If you have time and want to take it to the next level, bake your brie wrapped in a pastry sheet lined with orange marmalade. It is a guaranteed wow factor for your Thanksgiving charcuterie board.
For meats, choose from the charcuterie classics like prosciutto, salami, chorizo, and Spanish ham to keep it festive. These cured meats go great with the cheese but also pair well with the fruit and nuts on the board.
If you want to go all out, make these glazed apricots with ricotta and pistachios - they will surely be a hit with your guests!
The best thing about building a charcuterie board is that there are no strict rules. Every board will look different, and that’s what makes them so special. With that said, you can use a few tips and tricks to ensure your board looks beautiful and functions well.
If you are serving olives, marinated artichokes, or more than one dip, place them in bowls and spread them across the board, leaving space around them.
There you have it – your very own Thanksgiving charcuterie board!
We hope all these have inspired you to build your very own one-of-a-kind Thanksgiving charcuterie board and blow everyone away this turkey day!
