charcuterie2

Isn’t it nice to sometimes have a dinner where you don’t have to cook a thing?  Well, that’s what we did tonight.  I’m meeting a friend for a movie tonight so wanted a quick and light nibble that would get me out the door and to the theater in time.  I decided on a charcuterie board.  I’ve never actually put out a charcuterie board for dinner, but I think I’ll be doing this quite often.  It was the perfect meal for a summer dinner, or lunch on the patio.

Ingredients (Can vary depending on what you like, but this is what I did)

  • calabrese
  • capocollo
  • prosciutto
  • figs
  • goat cheese
  • provolone
  • harvarti
  • crusty bread
  • cherry tomatoes
  • burrata cheese
  • balsamic glaze
  • apricot jam
  • fig butter
  • Directions

Place cherry tomatoes on a small plate and drizzle with balsamic glaze and sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt.  Break up one round of burrata cheese over the tomatoes.  Cut figs into quarters and wrap with prosciutto. On the board, lay pieces of crusty bread, crackers, meats, prosciutto wrapped figs, bowls of fig butter and apricot jam, and cheeses. Everyone serves themselves. Enjoy!

Until next time, Kris
