I have to admit something that’s rather embarrassing but I’ll do it for the sake of food! It wasn’t until I moved to Texas that I heard the term “charcuterie board.”
A charcuterie board was always referred to as a meat and cheese platter where I grew up so I had no idea the term existed. Now that I know what a charcuterie board is, I had to make one for our family football-watching game day. I love that a board can be tailored to any group or occasion with meats, cheeses, sweets, and savory nibbles. It’s also a great way to clean out our fridge and pantry by using all the random food items you’ve been meaning to use but haven’t. I wanted a healthier version so I loaded my board with protein-packed food items.
