A delicious Baked Potato Dinner Board with all your favorite toppings, perfect for a casual party! Serve a hot bowl of chili in the center!

Friends, earlier this week I shared a simple recipe, Baked Russet Potatoes Recipe. Easy weeknight dinner, right? I shared on my Instagram story a new board that I found that is a little smaller than the usual ones (20 inches), but IT HAS A LIP.

Grab the details below … :)

  • Chili, heated up and chopped bacon
  • Bacon and ham, chopped
  • Sour cream, guacamole, pico de gallo, blue cheese crumbles, and grated cheese

All about the boards

Since I’ve started sharing boards over the last three years, 99% of my recipes and ideas have been on a board with a small 1-2 inch lip.

The reason being, with all the entertaining that we have done, the other boards just don’t make sense.

THE FOOD FALLS OFF, right? Am I the only one that has had this happen?

I don’t even look for boards anymore unless they making serving easy! Grab the EPIC size board info at the bottom of this post!

28-inch Charcuterie Board

Friends, here are the boards that I LOVE. A “lip” is the secret to the best charcuterie or dinner board, because the food does not fall off. [This post has affiliate links. Every purchase from these links supports RE at no extra cost to you. Thank you!]

Rememember it says it is “not food safe,” so you need to prepare the board by either laying down parchment paper under the food, or you can “season” it like we did.

Here are a few other (affiliate) options:

Courtland Wooden Lazy Susan – 18-inch round. Buy >> HERE 

LAZY SUSAN is a board that spins. It does NOT have a lip, but it’s cool for the center of the table.

Here’s an 18-inch wine barrel wood board or a 24-inch hammered large round tray or a 26-inch stainless steel serving platter that you may also like! Check out the weight on these boards.

How to season a Charcuterie Board

If a wood board says it “not food safe,” you can lightly sand it down with sand paper, and rub down with beeswax and mineral oil.

We used this butcher block and cutting board oil conditioner after we lightly sanded the board down.

Or, lay down parchment paper! Easy peasy!
