Here’s a festive snack before the big Thanksgiving Feast. Make a Thanksgiving Turkey Cheese Platter!
Thanksgiving Day will be here before you know it, which also means a house full of family and friends. While the Turkey and all the trimmings cook away, you’ll need something to snack on, to hold your guests over until the big feast. That’s where this adorable Thanksgiving Turkey Cheese Platter comes to the rescue! I’ve partnered with Cache Valley Cheese to create this cute tray.
Here’s what you need to make this Turkey come to life:
-a variety of cheese slices
-a salami stick, sliced and then all the rounds sliced in half
-one pear, sliced in half
-peppercorns for the eyes
-tiny Cheddar cheese triangle for the turkey’s beak
-a piece of salami for the “snood” or “wattle”
-cinnamon sticks for the legs
We started with Muenster, then Colby and Monterey Jack, Pepper Jack, Medium Cheddar and finally Gouda! For the center we sliced up a salami stick and then sliced the rounds in half. The trick to making this tray is to start wide and work your way into the center layering rows of cheese slices as you go. It’s so easy and so cute all at the same time. I can’t wait for you to make one!
