Thanksgiving is all about the main course and rightfully so (there are only so many days a year you get to eat mashed potatoes, stuffing, and turkey!). But it’s still fun to snack on some apps ahead of the meal — especially if it’s a Thanksgiving charcuterie board. Whether it’s how the cheeses and meats align to look like a turkey’s feathers or how the board’s little accents — like pumpkins, dried corn, and maple leaves — are thoughtfully placed throughout, there’s no denying the way a good Thanksgiving charcuterie board adds a festive touch to the season.
From Friendsgiving to Thanksgiving to even a simple picture for the ‘gram, these fall charcuterie boards are made for it all. You can throw together a brunch board, dessert board, candy board, or classic turkey charcuterie board with meats, cheeses, fruits, and more. (And if you want to go the extra mile, there are even hot-chocolate charcuterie boards that look pretty freakin’ tasty, too.) Regardless of which you choose, you’ll be the talk of the town this November with any of these Thanksgiving charcuterie-board ideas ahead.
