Game Day Meat & Cheese Platter

Let’s talk Meat & Cheese Platters!  That’s this week’s #HandCraftedEdibles theme, after all!

I love meat & cheese trays because they’re so incredibly versatile!

I called today’s tray a game day platter because I whipped this up while we watched the Green Bay Packer Game last week.  But it also works well for board game nights with friends.  Or Thanksgiving snackies, or Christmas parties!  Or even use a disposable or inexpensive tray and bring it as a hostess gift!  There’s end to the meat and cheese tray’s usefulness.

Plus, you can use whatever meats and cheese you have on hand!  There’s no need for special tools, just roll the meats and cut the cheeses into triangles and you’re all set!  I also like to add some fresh fruit for a little extra variety and that pop of color.

Here’s what’s on my tray:

Dry Salami
Black Pepper Dry Salami
Teriyaki Beef Sticks
Dry Coppa

Baby Bel Cheese
Goat Cheese

Bacon Ritz
Pita Chips
Pretzel Sticks

Sweet Peppers
Cherry Tomatoes

But wait!  There's More!

In an effort to make all of my holiday gifts this year, we are sharing recipes for hand-crafted treats. Over the course of twelve weeks, we'll be sharing recipes that you can make at home to give to friends and loved ones. We hope you'll follow along for inspiration. You can find out more information, including the schedule: here.

This week, we are sharing recipes about one of my favorite holiday appetizers: the cheese tray.
