Truth be told, I’ve never met a cheese board that I didn’t like. Call me cheese-a-holic but it’s true! The great thing about creating (and eating) a cheese board is that it truly does not have to be super fancy with over a dozen different types of cheeses either. It can be a simple one with a smooth creamy cheese and cucumbers. There is no discrimination, big or small, when it comes to making one of these delightful little trays and with Cracker Barrel Bites and a few easy tips, you’ll be able to make them within minutes for you and your friends!
Are you interested in trying yourself? Here are a few tips, and the best part is you can gather all of these ingredients and Cracker Barrel Bites at your local Jewel-Osco.
1. The Board
For starters, you actually need a cheese board. You can find any of these in whatever size you feel comfortable having, plus various boards, too, such as slate, marble, or wood. Personally, I love a good wood cheese board to give a rustic look to the presentation. I have a few various sizes and sometimes, the smaller ones are perfect for smaller get togethers.
Obviously to create a simple cheese board, you’ll need the obvious: various cheeses! Now, you want to make sure that you are selecting certain cheeses such as a hard one (cheddar) or semi soft (Gorgonzola). You’ll want to mix and mingle these cheeses within other items that you’ll be putting on your cheese board.
Cheeses are important, but you also want to make sure that you have good pairings with these tasty treats. I love adding fresh fruit such as crisp grapes to the mix, along with vegetables like cucumbers. The crunch of the cucumbers, salty cheese, and buttery crackers is a winner!
The best part about making simple cheese boards? You can grab everything you need at your local grocery store. I came across Cracker Barrel Bites while shopping at my local Jewel-Osco. These Cracker Barrel Bites are truly something special because of their rich, bold flavor, plus they are made from their own proprietary cheese cultures so they only have the finest cheeses. Using these crackers and cheeses makes putting together a cheese board simple, affordable, and easy to grab and go!
