Is a charcuterie board a snack or a meal?

While traditionally, a charcuterie board made with an assortment of meats, cheeses, bread, and accompaniments graced the tables as an appetizer, its evolution into a meal is quite popular.

A charcuterie board can cross into the territory of a meal, especially those made with a balanced selection of proteins, carbs, fruits, and nuts. The answer may hinge on the quantity, variety, and the occasion it’s being served.

A small, simple spread might whet the appetite, while a large, intricate board, abundant enough for guests to graze over for hours, could replace a formal meal altogether.

For a touch of heat, a bowl of chile con queso makes for a crowd-pleasing appetizer. Of course, the sweetness of churros dusted with cinnamon sugar provides a perfect ending to the meal!
