Party Ham Sandwich Board

Harvest Party Ham Sandwich Board

This “pumpkin-themed” board serves about 12 guests. You may have already tried my Tri Tip Sandwich Charcuterie Board or Epic Sandwich Charcuterie Board (both good for large parties!)

All you need is a big board, the ingredients (of course), and a cookie cutter in the shape of a pumpkin!

Ham Sandwich Board

Make a smaller version

First of all, if this board is intimidating to you, start small.

You can always make a smaller version (cut the recipe in half), or get ideas from it.

And if you’re specifically looking for a Halloween idea, don’t forget The Baker Mama’s Spooky Snack Board.

How to create the board

Here’s what you need to make this board. Fresh sandwich ingredients, like bread, ham, and your favorite toppings! And little chocolate mousse pumpkins from Trader Joe’s!

Oh, fresh apple slices!

  1. Add your favorite mustards or aioli sauce.
  2. To make the cheese slices, using a pumpkin cookie cutter, cut out thin slices of your favorite cheese (Harvarti and cheddar work great!).
  3. Add lettuce, red onion, tomatoes … more of your favorite toppings!

Hosting tips

My blog is all about sharing recipes, ideas, easy hosting tips, and of course, a lot of love and inspiration.

Also, if you start feeling anxious about wanting more, or not feeling satisfied, that means a heart check should be coming your way.

I love this quote that keeps me centered.

“True happiness is to understand our duties toward God and man; to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence on the future; not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears, but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is abundantly sufficient.” –Seneca
