Let me tell you a little secret…Andrew Shull and I have some sort of a charcuterie board at least four nights a week.
We can’t stop.
It’s been going on about 18 months now.
Sometimes, we pull our board out and just add a little salami, good quality Parm and a few crackers…and then other nights, we pull out multiple things, add jam plus some nuts and create a whole spread. If there is a board on a menu at a restaurant? We get it. We’re hooked, friends. Hooked.
The other night, I had some couples over for dinner and created this board, so I thought I’d snap a few pics and share my favorite things on my board…
Mmmmmm…I like love this stuff so much!!! Okay, here’s what’s on this particular board:
1: Grapes (I also like using raspberries or blackberries when in season)
2: Sliced Salami (or a good quality sausage is nice too)
3: Marcona almonds (we switched this up and sometimes used spicy nut mixtures as well)
4: Rosemary Crackers (from Trader Joe’s)
5: A different variety of salami (my friends joke with me because I love any sort of sausage/salami/pepperoni/basically any sort of meat)
6: Pepper Jelly (we love this one from Trader Joe’s but we also like blackberry pepper jellys too…you really cannot go wrong!)
7: Garlic & Herb Boursin Cheese
8: Stilton with dried cranberries
9: Pepperoni (Andrew sometimes gets us grilled chicken to put on our board, but I prefer the salami-type meats)
10: Sriracha Cheddar Cheese
11: Pepper Jack Cheese
12: A good quality honey (this one is made not far from our house)
13: Wheat Crackers
14: Rosemary sprigs to make the board smell nice and because they’re pretty
The only thing missing here was my goat cheese (fantastic with the honey and jam!). We also really like the sweet potato crackers from Costco as well for our boards.
So…that’s on my board. What’s on yours?! I’m always looking for new ideas!!!
