The holiday season is here and it’s time to start preparing for holiday entertaining and festivities. One trend that has caught our attention is the Christmas wreath charcuterie board. Not only is it a festive centerpiece for your table, but also an appetizing and a fun way to serve your holiday spread. Whether you’re an experienced charcuterie board creator or a first-timer, this blog will provide step-by-step instructions on how to create a beautiful and delicious Christmas wreath charcuterie board.
Step 1: Select your board and ingredients
The first step is selecting the board to create your wreath. A circular board is ideal for creating a wreath. Next, select your ingredients. For the wreath base, you can include crackers, such as Ritz, saltine or wheat thins, that will add a nice crunch. Choose a variety of cheese, either sliced or cubed, that will add flavor and texture. Add in some cured meats including salami, prosciutto or ham, arranged in a circular direction to resemble the leaves of the wreath. Next, you can add some fruits such as grapes, berries, and sliced apples, that will add color to the wreath.
Step 2: Assemble the wreath
Start by placing the cheese in a circle arranged around the center. Add the crackers next, filling in the empty spaces between cheese. Take the sliced meats and fold them in half, placing them in the wreath in the same direction as the cheese slices. Finally, add your fruit to the wreath, filling in the empty spots between the meats.
Step 3: Add greenery to the wreath
It’s time to add the ‘greenery’ to the wreath. Place a small dish in the center of the wreath to hold dips, such as hummus or ranch. Next, add some real or faux greenery, such as rosemary, thyme, or holly to the wreath to give it a festive look.
Step 4: Garnish and serve
Finally, it’s time to garnish and serve your wreath. Add some additional elements to the wreath, such as some nuts or olives to fill in any empty spaces. Sprinkle some seasoning on the cheese, such as cracked pepper. Arrange some additional fruit outside the wreath to add even more color and flavor. Serve and enjoy!
