Everyone loves a great snack tray, especially at the holidays. Here are 25 incredibly delicious Thanksgiving Charcuterie Board ideas -perfect for your holiday feast!
What is a charcuterie board?
Well, the word charcuterie literally means “cooked meat”. And so a traditional charcuterie board is a spread of cooked meats, often with cheeses or other accompaniments.
Of course, society has taken hold of the term and now you can find all kinds of “charcuterie boards” – dessert charcuterie, fruit and cheese charcuterie, even vegan charcuterie boards.
Now while these might technically not be charcuterie boards (more like grazing boards or snack boards) – I think they’re a ton of fun. So I’ve gathered up all the best Thanksgiving Charcuterie Boards on the web. Some traditional, some non-traditional, and all totally delicious!
Best Trays for a Charcuterie Board
There are really just two rules for building your Thanksgiving Charcuterie Board – 1) pick a beautiful serving platter and 2) stack it full!
Here are a few of my favorite options for a charcuterie board tray:
- A large wooden cutting board – this oversized board with a handle is perfect!
- One of these charcuterie board sets – complete with ceramic serving bowls and serving utensils.
- Pretty slate serving platters – and you can write on them with chalk!
