Need ideas on how to outsmart the season this year? Here’s the best appetizer for a party that’s super quick and delicious, too. It’s a crowd pleasing favorite to impress your family and friends.
Best Appetizer for a Party
During the holidays, I like to keep a few pantry staples on hand for entertaining. That way, when family and friends stop by, I’m always prepared with a few goodies to serve that are super quick and easy to throw together in a pinch. And with Food Lion, it is super easy to outsmart the season this year.
To me, preparing a cheese board is the best appetizer for a party. The cheese board is always a hit at our house and it’s so easy during the holidays to keep the ingredients on hand.
My boys love the variety of crackers, meats, and cheeses to try. But as a busy mom, I love just how easy and quick it is to create such a festive and beautiful display of tasty servings.
I simply head to Food Lion for a few of our favorite cheeses and crackers, add a few slices of sausages and some fruit, and then display it all on a beautiful platter. That’s how you outsmart the season!
How to Prepare a Cheese Board
Need help with your upcoming party? A cheese board can really be a lifesaver when you’re pressed for time. Simply follow these few steps to make it super quick and festive, too.
- Pick Your Platter – When building your cheese board, make sure to select a large plate or serving platter that will hold all of your tasty crackers and cheeses. I like to use a large wooden cutting board, but any type of large serving tray will do.
- Choose Your Cheese – The feature, of course, is your choice of cheeses. Choose a variety of soft and hard cheeses with interesting flavors and textures. Just remember to make it easy for your guests by slicing the cheese ahead or grabbing packages of cheese from the deli department that’s already cubed. That way, everyone can use toothpicks or a serving fork when making their tasty choices.
- Sweet & Salty– Fill the rest of your tray with sweet slices of fruit and maybe some jam. Then add a few slices of meat and don’t forget the crackers.
