EPIC Kid-Friendly Grilled Cheese Charcuterie Board

Okay, the cat is out of the bag. My kids are no longer little, and in fact, they are all in their 20’s now! And they love charcuterie boards!

Coughlin Family Hosmer Lake 2018

How fun is this recent picture of our family?

We spent an evening on Hosmer Lake a few weeks ago, and my daughter brought her camera. We had the most glorious evening, sunset, and picnic with our puppy, Alder.

Don’t worry, Haggis was home holding down the fort. He doesn’t love adventures like this anymore. Remember he’s 14 now! But still pretty feisty and cute.

Big kids or little kids, we still love grilled cheese.

We had fun munching on this board, but I really wanted to give you inspiration for a party, maybe before your kids go back to school, or a Friday night dinner for the family, or an autumn birthday party or even a soccer party!

Fun? Yes!

How to make an epic charcuterie board

You take your giant board. (If not food-friendly, layer with parchment paper:) You can also season your board with mineral oil and beeswax, if it’s not food-safe. Research this yourself and decide what method is best for you.

28-inch round board

We bought this giant board (28-inches in diameter with a 2-inch lip) at Pier 1 last fall here in Bend, Oregon. It’s solid wood and SUPER heavy (just warning you). Even thought it’s very beautiful, you need a strong core to carry this around!

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!

Oh, and don’t forget the COOKIES and Graham Crackers! We love Trader Joe’s Jo Jos!

Happy back-to-school, Friends!
