Do you have company coming for New Years? It is SO easy to create a cheese plate that is a show stopping appetizer. It is quick, tasty and beautiful…and it’s my go-to appetizer when I’m having company. I love it because it’s SO easy to put together and looks like a million bucks. Here are a few tip to create your own cheese plate in minutes.
Here’s what you’ll need:
3-5 types of unique cheeses
We are a bit adventurous with our cheese, but you don’t have to be. The guideline I usually follow for a good assortment is this:
1 hard, 1 semi-soft and 1 soft
one Goat, one cow and one sheep
You can serve these with some fun things to accompany them. These are a few things that we like with ours and seem to work well:
Crackers (pick something pretty)
A Sliced Baguette
Sliced Green Apples
Dried fruits (apricots, cherries)
Nuts (candied walnuts, almonds etc.)
Exotic honey (honeycomb, flavored honey)
I always like to add a little dark chocolate too
Most of the grocery stores sell specialty cheeses these days, but if not, you can find a great selection (for less!!) at Trader Joes and Costco.
