Country Cooking: How to Prepare a Charcuterie Board with Southern Meats and Sides

If you are looking to create a unique and delicious charcuterie board, consider incorporating classic Southern meats and appetizers. These meats and dies are flavorful, hearty, and perfect for snacking on with friends and family. Here are some ideas for creating a country charcuterie board with classic southern favorites:

Country Cooking: How to Prepare a Charcuterie Board with Southern Meats and Sides

Start with the meats: Souse meat, boudin, country ham, thick-cut bologna are all great options to include on your charcuterie board. These meats are full of flavor and will add a unique touch to your board. Be sure to slice the meats thinly so that they are easy to eat.

Add some sides: Rice pudding, pimento cheese, boiled peanuts, and saltine crackers can all be great additions to your charcuterie board. Rice pudding is liver and rice dish similar to bonding and very common in the Carolinas. Pimento cheese is a classic southern spread that is perfect for snacking on with crackers or bread. Boiled peanuts are a southern staple and make a great snack. And saltine crackers are a simple but delicious addition that can be used to scoop up the meats and sides.

Arrange everything on a board: Once you have all of your meats and sides ready, it’s time to arrange them on a board. Start by placing the meats on the board and then add the sides around them. Be sure to leave some empty space on the board so that everything is easy to access.

When it comes to creating a charcuterie board, the right dishware can make all the difference. The ideal dishware for a charcuterie board is something that is both functional and visually appealing.

First, consider the size of your board and the amount of food you plan to serve. Choose dishes that will fit comfortably on your board without overcrowding it. You can also mix and match different sizes and shapes of dishes to add visual interest.

Next, think about the material of the dishes. Ceramic or porcelain plates are a classic choice and come in a variety of colors and patterns. Wooden boards or platters can add a rustic touch to your presentation. Glass plates or bowls can provide a sleek and modern look.

Finally, consider the types of food you will be serving and choose dishes that will complement them. For example, small bowls or ramekins are perfect for dips or spreads, while long narrow dishes are great for crackers or breadsticks.

Remember, the dishware you choose can help enhance the overall look and feel of your charcuterie board, so have fun with it and let your creativity shine!
