Happy EPIC St. Patrick's Day Charcuterie Board

What I love about a cheese board is that it can actually be the main course to your meal.

Actually, the only course that you need, and I spy a little bit of chocolate on this board for dessert as well. Do you see it? (Mm-m-m … Andes Thin Mints:) But wait … if you want a “real” dessert, don’t forget Irish Dark and White Bread Pudding!

Charcuterie/Cheese Board

A charcuterie is meant to be shared and very hands-on!

You may already be following my charcuterie/cheese board recipes here on RE!

This past weekend, we set out this Epic St. Patrick’s Day Charcuterie Board (with plenty of green nibbles) for our family and friends, along with some good Irish beer.

Let everyone dive in and make their own pastrami sandwiches (on rye bread), and nibble on other salty snacks. Keep it light!

What is charcuterie?

By the way, what is charcuterie? It may sound fancy, but did you know that it’s literally the French word for anything meat – smoked, dry-cured or cooked. So I used pastrami!

Al Fresco Dining in March

Set the table

A few years ago, it was warm enough to host a party outside in our southern Oregon home.

Set the table for St. Patrick's Day

With touches of green, and plenty of Guinness, this Happy St. Patrick’s Day Charcuterie Board was a great way to get the party started!

St. Patrick's Day Table Setting

And as I always say here on RE, I feel blessed to have creative family and friends who can cook and contribute to a meal, bring drinks, ice, or even stop by the store if needed, so I take advantage of this when we host a dinner party.

Why should I have to do it all, when our friends can help make the meal fabulous?

Happy St. Patrick's Day Charcuterie Board - Andes Mints

Your charcuterie board shopping list:

  1. A board that is big enough for all the nibbles. I love “round,” because a lot of people can gather around it.
  2. Several kinds of smoked, dry-cured or cooked meats!
  3. Cheese is everything! Add a fun mix of firm and soft cheese, mild and sharp!
  4. Don’t forget accoutrements, for this board: mustard!
  5. Fruit, nuts, veggies, crackers, and bread (rye)!
  6. A sweet nosh: Chocolate is always a party fave! Don’t forget the Andes Mints!

Try something new for spring! It’s super-fun to create your own holiday charcuterie, considering different aspects of what can complement your board!

Some people say there is a certain way to arrange a charcuterie board, but I say just make it pretty and accessible, which is why I love a round board.

Set it in the center of a table and let everyone dig in!
