The Ultimate Cheese Board is perfect for entertaining, takes 5 minutes to put together and is filled with your favorite cheeses, nuts, dried fruits, crackers, olives and more!
The holiday season is full of so many parties and lots of cheer! I love it. This year, we are not having any huge parties like we usually have. We have hosted three out of the last four Christmas's for our families for about 50 people. This year, we are not hosting Christmas but may have some smaller gatherings at our home.
I have been wanting to make a beautiful cheese plate and the holidays are the perfect time! I love cheddar cheeses and sharp flavors. I chose a variety of cheeses, nuts, dried fruit, grapes, olives, crackers, etc. for this tray. It turned out great and would be perfect for any party, holiday or not.
It can be put together in 5-10 minutes and you can feel free to use whatever you want on it. If you prefer simple cheeses such as mozzarella, use that. If you like blue cheese, goat cheese, etc. feel free to use those. Different nuts that work well are pistachios, almonds or cashews.
Fresh fruits that are delicious are pears, apples, grapes or strawberries. Dried fruits that are delicious on a cheese tray are apricots, figs, cranberries, cherries or prunes. Crackers or breads that are perfect are pretzels, whole-grain crackers, pita chips, toasted French baguettes and more. I love it because no matter what you put together, it turns our pretty and delicious!

For this cheese board, I chose to add Kaukauna® Cheese Balls which are perfect for the holiday season. My mom has been buying these cheese balls our whole lives. I picked up the sharp cheddar and port wine flavors from my local Kroger. They are good on veggies or crackers. These cheese balls are made with 100% real cheddar cheese. It comes in cups, logs and balls and many different flavors.
