Meat and Cheese Plate Ideas

Meat & Cheese Platter

A meat and cheese platter is a great addition to any party and surprisingly easy to prepare.  With Christmas gatherings right around the corner, this seemed like a great post for you guys.  Although not mentioned, I also like to throw in some roasted pecans as edible garnishes!

You can use a wide variety of meats and cheese or keep it simple with a smaller crowd. You can provide crackers or bread, so people can assemble their own sandwiches too.

Creating your own meat and cheese platter is all a matter of personal taste, availability and budget. So go ahead and make it how you like it and enjoy.
