Can you believe the holidays are fast approaching? I can’t even believe it. I wanted to share how to make a quick meat and cheese platter today compliments of Dietz & Watson. We recently partnered with them to share with you their variety of deli meats, cheeses and condiments. This was a no brainer for us. We already buy their deli meats and cheeses and love them. One of quick appetizer idea that is always a hit in our house during the holidays is a meat and cheese platter.
Doesn’t it look delicious?
How to make a quick meat and cheese platter – the meats
Dietz & Watson is a 4th generation family owned and operated company since the beginning some 75+ years ago. Of course, we love this because we are four generations living under one roof ;). Anything multigenerational is a plus as far as we are concerned. You can find Dietz & Watson products in your deli department and have them freshly sliced or simply grab the pre-packaged version. You will also find their specialty mustards, horseradish sauce and more in the deli department.
For this platter I chose black forest smoked turkey breast, virginia ham, london broil roast beef, provolone cheese and cheddar horseradish cheese, all from Dietz & Watson.
We always roll a bunch of cheeses and meats and have either french or sourdough bread available in case someone wants to make a sandwich.
How to make a quick meat and cheese platter – fun ideas
Another fun idea to add to the platter are ham and cheese rolled apples. Simply slice up an apple and wrap smoked or honey ham around the apple and slide in a piece of cheddar or provolone . These are so yummy!
We love adding a gourmet touch to our platters. Another trick is to create kabob sticks.
Try pairing small salad tomatoes, red seedless grapes and a thinly sliced piece of cucumber to the kabob.
This meat and cheese platter took about 20 minutes to make and you will be surprised when you serve this to your guests, they will think you paid to have it made!
This is one of the easiest appetizers to make. You can’t mess this up!
Hosting guests can be stressful so we always try to make things easy. Whether you are a seasoned host or hostess or this is your first holiday dinner party, you can’t go wrong with creating a delicious meat and cheese platter filled with premium meats and cheeses from Dietz & Watson.
