Easy Cheese Charcuterie Board

Happy National Cheese Day friends! I had a few cheesy recipes I was thinking of sharing, but decided to stick with my favorite way to eat cheese, on a cheese board!

The best part of a cheese board is there isn’t really a recipe to follow! You can really take any meats, cheeses, and/or jellies (I ALWAYS add the jelly and sauce) and throw them all on a tray. I love making my charcuterie boards on my favorite bamboo cutting board. Something about the presentation makes me extra happy when I eat it.

This particular board was really last minute. I mixed up the crackers and used Cheddar Crisps. They are the best cheese only crackers! So perfect for National Cheese Day and a cheese charcuterie board. The second cracker I used was a rye cranberry cracker! It was a great combo. Next, I picked my meats. I literally used only what we had in the fridge – pepperoni, salami, and lunchmeat (ham). I always have a ton of cheeses so this was east to add. I used cranberry brie, Jarlsberg, mustard poppy seed brie and a hard Munster block. I found some sun dried tomatoes in the fridge and threw those on the edge of my creations and then grabbed the berries. I had grapes and blackberries which were the perfect combination. Jams are really optional, but I LOVE sauce so I added a few. One was a pineapple jalapeño, another was a mustard and the last was a blackberry jam.

That is it y’all! I just placed them around the board until I felt it looked presentable and then enjoyed with some kombucha! Perfect filling snack and such a great way to celebrate National Cheese Day! Hope everyone enjoys!

Published by Not Ur Average Mom Of 5

Most importantly, I am a mother of 5. I don't have your typical happily ever after family. I am divorced (one of those nasty messy ones), I have way too many bills (don't we all) and I really don't have any interesting hobbies (wasn't always that way, I grew up riding horses) I am in a relationship with the love of my life and my happily ever after. He is the most amazing and loving person I have ever met. Payton deals with my crazy life and family and embraces is with so much love and support. He is the BEST dad and father figure I know). He is an Engineer for our local fire department and that is HARD. I honestly am so proud of him and so proud of what he does BUT I HATE his job, I hate nights away and I hate the time it takes from our family. People don't realize how difficult it is. At the end of the day, I am so thankful for him and our life together, I can't wait to spend forever with him. My kids....they are terrorists. Seriously. I grew up as an only girl out of 4 total kids. I always wanted 4 kids - 2 girls and 2 boys. Well, the big man upstairs had other plans! I am bless with one daughter and four sons. My daughter is the oldest. Makenzee Adele is 11, going on 18. She is smart and hardworking and LOVES school. Caleb is next. He is 9 and so loving. He works really hard in school and loves baseball. Next is Connor. He is 7 and very advanced in school. He hates doing any school work and has the silliest personality and can light up a room. Connor plans to play professional football for the Arizona Cardinals when he grows up. Moving forward is Keegan. I had the worst pregnancy with him. I had Hyperemisis Gravidum and was on home IV and Zofran for the majority of the pregnancy. He was born healthy and is 4 and a wonderful boy who causes more trouble than necessary (he was recently diagnosed with Autism and ADHD). Lastly is Rhett. He is the baby and loves getting treated like he is. He was born April 5 (I am seriously not changing the months constantly) and LOVES cuddles possibly more than his dad. So that is a bit about me and my family! Subscribe to my blog to read more about my WILD ride!!
