This meat and cheese platter is one of my favorite things to snack off of, not to mention it creates a beautiful food display worthy of any party!
Ever since I was little I‘ve been reading lots of fun books about characters who go on quests and stop by taverns for some well-deserved food. All the characters always seem to eat cheese, bread, pieces of meat, and a little fruit. Even though this meat and cheese platter is much more fancy than what the characters would enjoy on a quest, I like to think they would enjoy it nonetheless!
I’ve wanted to make a one of these beautiful platters for some time and finally got around to it! It was perfect timing because I has just made my mini apple pies and my easy homemade bread, so naturally I wanted to combine all my yummy food into one delicious platter. Add in some cheese and meat and you have yourself an amazing and delicious display!
This could be considered a charcuterie board, which is a French word for cooked meat and is usually displayed with cheeses and several types of meat, but I like to just call it a meat and cheese platter.
I’ve included some of the best cheeses on this board and some of my favorite salamis.
So what specifically is included in this meat and cheese board?
- Italian Dry Salami
- Peppered Salami
- Calabrese Salami
- Salami Portofino (the salami stick)
- White Stilton Cheese with Mango and Ginger
- Wine Soaked Goat Cheese
- Muenster Cheese
- Smoked Gouda (my favorite!)
- Dubliner Cheese with Irish Stout
- Mini Apple Pies
- Homemade Tavern Bread
Usually when I buy cheese I only get what I need, but it was so much fun going shopping for this cheese platter. I took my time looking at all the different cheese and enjoyed picking out ones I thought would taste and look good!
