The latest and greatest spin on the charcuterie craze is the Butter Board. Gone are the days of a little basket of bread and a little cup of olive oil for dipping. Butter boards are here to liven up that experience with a feast for the eyes and the taste buds. And they are so simple to make that they can be whipped up moments before party time.
All you need is some high-quality butter (Kerry Gold is my go-to), a wooden cutting or serving board or any flat food-safe surface, flakey salt, and a plethora of toppings that you might already have in the pantry or fridge.
Here is a list of my favorite butter board how-tos and recipes. There's even a cream cheese version!
