‘Tis the season for all the holiday parties to start and fill up your weekends! Its no secret in my family that I absolutely love cheese so when Mom said she wanted a cheese platter, she got a good one.
To have a successful cheese platter, you want to include these things:
- Choose a couple different types of cheeses. I would go with a soft cheese and a mild tasting cheese.
- Leave some crackers and breads to top your cheeses on. I like getting plain water crackers and then a cracker that has an added flavoring.
- Don’t forget the jams and jellies to add that little bit of tart.
- If you want to get extra, like I did, put some oven roasted ham carved up to add with the cheeses.
Needless to say, the cheese, crackers and ham did not make it until the end of the night. They were so delicious and such a hit with the family.
