Holiday Cheese Board Ideas for #SundayFunday
Welcome to #SundayFunday! Wendy from A Day In The Life on The Farm invited fellow bloggers to kick back, relax, and share something tasty and fun each weekend. "Sunday should be a Family Funday. Please join us in sharing recipes that will help you to enjoy your Sunday." If you're a blogger interested in joining us, just visit our Facebook group and request to join!
Today our #SundayFunday group is hosted by Culinary Adventures with Camilla; she said "Let's share recipes or tips for making holiday cheese boards. Think phyllo-wrapped baked cheeses, pickle relishes, homemade crackers, spiced nuts, and more. Anything you would put on a cheese board is fair game. Be as creative as you like!"
I am completely obsessed with baked brie - there's nothing quite like cutting into that buttery, flaky pastry and having ooey, gooey, cheese lava spread out. You need a good sized group to share a wheel of baked brie with though... unless you are really committed and are willing to make yourself sick... I probably know this from experience.
So, knowing I did not have a large group to share decadent baked brie with - I decided to play with ideas for a cheese trays instead. I tend to think there's not really a wrong way to make a cheese tray - I typically include a few basics, but mix and match depending on what I have available or what I'm in the mood for. Leading up to today's event I tried some homemade crackers, and a wonderful cranberry infused cream cheese dip (recipe links below), and this tray was well received (aka devoured) at our small get together over Thanksgiving.
I hope you have a wonderful Holiday - if you need ideas for a cheese tray you'll find tons of delicious ideas below!

Holiday Cheese Board Ideas
Cheese Wedge: Dill Fontina
Sliced Cheese: Irish Cheddar
Crackers: Gouda Triscuits, Homemade Wheat Thins
Nuts: Roasted and Salted Cashews
Meat: Calabrese Salami
- Using a platter or wood board (I used this one), arrange a couple types of cheese and provide a cheese knife or two. Mix in a couple types of crackers and a spread or two. Mix in some fresh fruit (figs, grapes, strawberries, etc.), and a handful of mixed nuts.
- A meat or two that goes with the meat and cheese is always a great addition - salami, pepperoni, ham, turkey, etc.
- Mix and match with these basic components based on a particular theme, or flavor profile you enjoy.
I feel ya on the baked Brie. It's the best but so rich! Your homemade wheat thins look perfect!ReplyDelete
