Holiday Charcuterie Board

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Author: Caylie
Easy, delicious, and the perfect appetizer to serve during the winter holiday's! This Holiday Charcuterie Board is filled with crowd-pleasing cheeses, meats, fruits, and snacks to get through any party. It's so simple, but oh so delicious!


  • 5-6 wedges or blocks of cheese, such as sharp cheddar, brie, white cheddar, asiago, manchego, and parmesan.
  • 3-4 assorted meats, such as prosciutto, soppresata, and genoa salami
  • 6-7 assorted seasonal fruits and vegetables, such as raspberries, blackberries, bartlett pear, figs, honeycrisp apple, and olives
  • assorted nuts, such as roasted pecans and candied almonds
  • Spicy Cheese Crackers, or a variety of your favorite crackers
  • Cranberry Sauce


  • Cut cheeses into desired shapes.
  • Set out meat. Allow meats and cheeses to come to room temperature.
  • Starting with the largest things first (brie, olives, etc.), place onto board or serving platter. Fill in with meats, fruits, nuts, and crackers.
  • Serve immediately.


  • Use high quality meats and cheeses for the best flavor profiles.
  • Cut the cheese while it's cold for best results. If using a cookie cutter to cut brie, remember that the brie will stick. You will need to gently push each side down slowly to keep it from ripping.
  • Make sure everything is room temperature before serving. This brings out the flavor!
  • Enjoy this board with homemade components like crackers, roasted nuts, or candied nuts.
  • Make sure the fruits you buy are in season. This gives you the best flavors.
  • We serve this board with our Homemade Cranberry Sauce, but don't forget serving honey or any other condiment you may like with your cheeses and meats!
