The holiday season is among us which means two things: quality time with friends and fam AND aaaall the yummy feasts! 🥧🍗☕️ Don't go empty handed to your next holiday party, especially when you can show off by bringing this epic fall inspired grazing board! It's the perfect addition to any food or snack table!
- Large wooden serving tray
- Crackers or bread
- An assortment of fruits, cheeses and meats
- Nuts, chocolates or dried fruits
- Dips, jams and sauce bowls
- Rosemary or flowers
The easiest place to start when styling a grazing board is making a rough layout using the bigger foods like crackers and bread! 🥖 French baguettes, flax seed crackers and pumpkin cranberry crackers were our carbs of choice! 😋 Also place any bowls you'll be using for dipping sauces (we'll fill them at the end)!
Next you can add in all your cheese slices and cubes! You can put some out that are already cut along with full cheese wedges served with a knife! Our office is obsessing over this cinnamon dusted asiago cheese and apricot goat cheese! 🧀
Now you can add in all the fruit! For this fall inspired board, we chose apples, golden berries, strawberries and pomegranate! 🍎
The only main part of your board left is the cold meats! We went classic with salami (you can't go wrong)! If you fold the meat in half and then fold them in half again, you can style them on your board like a pro!
Fill in any empty spaces with small foods like nuts, chocolate, candied ginger, dried fruit or pumpkin seeds! 🥜🍫 It's nice to add a little crunch and some sweets in there! You can also fill your bowls with whatever sauces and jams you have. For this board, we chose almond butter for the fruit and pumpkin sauce for the meats and cheeses!
Now that all your foods have been placed, you can garnish the board with rosemary, cinnamon sticks and flowers to bring dimensions and a cute finishing touch to your beautiful creation!
EAT AND ENJOY! 🤗
