Margherita® Hard Salami, Italian Dry Salami, Pepperoni, and Genoa Salami are perfect for snacking, entertaining, and incorporating into everyday recipes like this Game Day Meat and Cheese Board.
If you are having guests over or are in charge of bringing a Meat and Cheese Board to a Game Day get together, this is a stress-free, easy way to feed your friends. There is no cooking involved, just arrange the meats and cheese and your favorite snacks on the board. It’s easy peasy.
Bite-size meat and cheeses with crackers, stick pretzels, gherkin pickles, and pepperoncini peppers will disappear quickly. Arrange the Margherita Cracker Cut Salami, Margherita Cracker Cut pepperoni, Margherita Cracker Cut turkey pepperoni, Margherita Cracker Cut Italian Salami, cracker cut sliced cheeses, chips, crackers, pickles, peppers, roasted nuts and festive napkins for the event. I like to pile everything high and have back up to fill in when needed.
Follow these steps to make the Meat and Cheese Game Board:
First, find a platter, cutting board, or baking sheet that you will use to make your Game Board. I like to use my football platter, it has holding spaces for everything. I also use small glass bowls or ramekins for nuts, pickles, olives, peppers, marinated cheeses, etc.
Start by putting the salami’s, pepperoni’s, cheeses on the board, move meats and cheeses as you add other snacking foods, such as chips, pretzels, nuts, crackers, and other finger food snacks that you love. Add more salami and cheeses, depending on how many people will be eating from the Game Board. You can always have back up for filling in as the munching goes.
Margherita Hard Salami, Italian Dry Salami, Pepperoni, and Genoa Salami have delicious spices that make a memorable snack.
Margherita Cracker Cut Meats can be found in local delis nationwide.
What kind of platter do you use for a Meat and Cheese Board?
My Football board is 18 1/2 ” x 13 1/4 inches. I think it’s the perfect size for a large gathering. You can also use a baking sheet or cutting board as well.
What kind of meats and cheeses do you use to make a Meat and Cheese Board?
My favorite meats to use are Margherita Cracker Cut Salami, Pepperoni, Italian Salami, Genoa Salami, Turkey Pepperoni. I like to include Colby Cheese, Pepper Jack Cheese, Gouda cheese, and Cheddar Cheese.
WHY I LOVE MARGHERITA CRACKER CUT MEATS:
- Margherita Cracker Cut products are flavorful, high-quality dry sausage products.
- Margherita Cracker Cut products can be used to create great recipes for all snacking occasions.
- The unique spice-forward flavor profile sets them apart from other Italian brands.
CAN I MAKE THE MEAT AND CHEESE BOARD EARLIER IN THE DAY?
Make the meat and cheese board about 30 minutes before serving to allow the cheese to come to room temperature.
How long does the meat and cheese board last?
Don’t leave the meat and cheese board out for longer than 2 hours at room temperature to adhere to food safety reasons.
BEFORE YOU GO TO THE MARKET, CHECK TO SEE WHAT YOU HAVE IN YOUR REFRIGERATOR AND CUPBOARDS FIRST.
Usually, I have an assortment of chips, pretzels, crackers, and nuts in my cupboard. We are big snackers in our family! I also have many containers of pickles, olives, and peppers in my refrigerator to choose from, you may as well. Better to use up these yummy snacks when making a delicious snacking Game Day Meat and Cheese Board.
