Gratitude defines us

I’m so glad that a grateful spirit can live in our hearts. Being filled with gratitude can really define us and spill over into the lives of others if we let it. We can tweak our attitudes when being thankful settles in … for the better!

Easy Leftover Thanksgiving Epic Charcuterie Board

This year, I’m thankful for the friends who are coming over to spend Thanksgiving with us! And that’s right, we will have leftovers!

With all the leftovers, instead of having Thanksgiving dinner every night (for a week, HA!), transform the leftovers into a Thanksgiving Epic Charcuterie Board. So fun!

Tasty Leftover Thanksgiving Epic Charcuterie Board

Here’s how to make it

Below are the leftover Thanksgiving foods that we used (like turkey, cranberries, crudite platter leftovers, and more), creating a Leftover Thanksgiving Epic Charcuterie Board. Super healthy, add fresh dinner rolls (a must), and lots of snackin’ goes on!

Oh, and these dinner rolls? We found them at a gourmet grocery store here in town, and they are Big Ed’s Gouda Cranberry Rolls!

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!

How to serve the board

I say fill the board with most foods, heating up the rolls, turkey, and stuffing right before serving.

Oh, and you have leftover cranberry salad? You could possibly slip that in on the board … somewhere. HA.
