Charcuterie boards have become a popular trend in recent years, and for good reason. These beautifully arranged platters offer endless possibilities for taste and texture, making them perfect for any occasion.

Typically consisting of a variety of cured meats, cheeses, crackers, fruits, and nuts, each board can be customized to suit individual preferences. Not only do they make for an impressive presentation, but they also encourage conversation and communal snacking.

Plus, with the growing focus on sustainability and small-scale artisans, charcuterie boards allow for the spotlight on local, artisanal products to shine while also offering a tasting experience that is both enjoyable and visually appealing.

  • Frozen Buffalo Wings
  • Frozen French Fries
  • Soft Pretzel Sticks
  • Carrots
  • Celery sticks
  • Nacho Chips
  • Salsa Chips
  • Dips

  • Cheese Dip


  1. Start by baking all your frozen foods according to the instructions on the packaging.
  2. While the frozen foods are baking, clean and dry your carrots and celery.
  3. Peel your carrots and then cut them into small sticks. I do this by 1st cutting the carrots in half and then cutting those halves in half.
  4. Cut your celery sticks in half to match the length of the carrots. Place both veggies to the side for later.
  5. Once the frozen foods are done, allow them to cool to room temperature.
  6. Place your dips into condiment bowls and set them to the side for later.
  7. Get your clean board and start placing your food on it.
  8. Place your sliders in the middle of the board, put the wings on each side of the sliders and the pigs in a blanket at the edge of the board right in front of the sliders.
  9. Next, place your french fries right behind the sliders. Add the celery to one side of the fries and the carrots to the other.
  10. Add the rest of the items to the board. 
  11. Lay the soft pretzel sticks across the anchor of the board, add the dips opposite each other on the board, and then place the chips in every area with open space.
  12. The board is completed and ready to Enjoy. GO Team!

A cute snack/graze board...even closer to a cheese board... but Charcuterie means "cooked meats" I think the world has forgotten that in the quest for "snack boards"

Trust me, I know what it means and it is actually quite a bit more morbid than "meat". LOL! But, in this space, I have to use the terminology that people are searching on google, pinterest, and the like in order to garner the traffic necessary to keep my site running. :-)
