Thanksgiving Charcuterie Board
Thanksgiving appetizers you make in advance, like creamy smooth apple dip, hearty mini sandwiches, and tender puff pastry topped with sweet potato soufflé. All the best Thanksgiving appetizers come together on this Thanksgiving charcuterie board.
Assemble all the items that will go on your charcuterie board. Start to add structure to the board by filling in the edges with bigger items like the rolls, crackers and decorations. Cut out the cream cheese with a cookie cutter. I love to use my acorn for the fall but a pumpkin or leaf would be cute on the board. Add pecans to garnish.
Mix up the apple dip.
Place the apple dip into a small container on the board.
Add in the sweet potato souffle puff pastries.
Make up the turkey sandwiches with the homemade rolls.
Fill in with the rest of the food. Add garnishes, fruits, nuts, cheese or anything else you have on hand. This is the time to let your creativity shine!
- Arrange generous portions of each component across a serving board, platter, or large plate. Make room for large and small garnishes.
- Don’t be afraid to let the items touch each other. A “crowded” board looks more full.
- If you have more food than can fit on your board, be sure to include at least some of each of the 6 components, and save the extra helpings to replenish your charcuterie board after 15 minutes.
- Bake the rolls a day or two in advance so they’re not competing for your time (or your oven space) on Thanksgiving day.
- Sweet potato filling can be made a day in advance as a terrific timesaver.
- Set a reminder on your phone for the time you wish to prep and serve the charcuterie board.
