Charcuterie boards aren’t just for snobby wine and cheese parties anymore - they’ve become an in-demand and easy app to throw together before friends and family come over. You’re even likely to find them all around your next tailgate. 

Simple charcuterie boards with just sliced meat, triscuits or ritz crackers, and cubed cheese are still perfectly fine (and delicious). But ever since the pandemic caused us to stay in our homes and miss out on get-togethers, they’ve become even more fancy and elaborate.

Some of the charcuterie displays you’ll find on Instagram or Pinterest literally look like works of art, and probably  take hours to arrange (not to mention cost a pretty penny).

If you had the time, you could try to replicate the work of a “charcuterie influencer” (yes that’s a real thing) before your next house party. But for those of us who are busy and don’t have wads of cash to spend on meat and cheese, keeping it simple is just fine. 

How To Make A Great Charcuterie Board

You really only need five basic things to whip up a charcuterie board that will be gobbled up before you know it.

  • Meat
  • Cheese
  • Carbs (bread or crackers)
  • Fruits and/or Veggies
  • Nuts
  • Dip or Spread

Easy, right?
