How to Make the Best Meat & Cheese Board
A meat and cheese board is a great way to appease hungry onlookers while finishing up the Thanksgiving meal. While these appetizer trays can get pricey, Save A Lot has gourmet flavors that are real crowd pleasers!
Choose the Right Cheese
Look to traditional favorites like Cheddar and Colby Jack cheeses, and spruce things up this Turkey Day with an Italian Parmesan cheese wedge or a block of Jalapeño Havarti. These flavors are sure to become a staple at all future family gatherings.
A Little Bit of Sweet and Crunchy
A great way to add a little extra to your platter is to include some dried fruits, nuts, and trail mix. Some great options are pistachios, dried cranberries, and Cajun sweet and spicy mix. Whatever you pick, have fun and add some variety because there isn't a right or wrong option.
Gotta Have the Meats
While summer sausage varieties are always a safe bet, try some different options this Thanksgiving. Pepperoni and Genoa Salami add smokey and spicy meat options that are also colorful and visually appealing.
Crackers: The Star of the Show
A good cracker really makes or breaks a charcuterie tray. Whether you select a gourmet deli crisp, buttery round, or classic club cracker, make sure it is high quality and can handle all the toppings.
