We’re already stressed enough during the holiday season, why add more with complicated appetizers? We usually attend at least one gathering each year where we’re asked to bring a plate of food to share. I used to wait until the last minute to decide what to bring searching Pinterest for easy ideas. I’ve learned my lesson so today I have an easy to make holiday ornament themed cheese board with Stella cheeses for you to share with holiday guests this year!
Head to your local grocery store and buy a few different kinds of Stella cheeses. I like to try to add a variation of flavors and colors to a cheese board. Buy round crackers to go with the cheese.
You’ll need a large plate or cheese board to serve your appetizer. Choose something simple. A solid platter or wooden cheese board covered with plastic wrap while being transported will work perfectly.
Cheese and Cracker Ornaments
Cut circle shapes from the cheese that are slightly smaller than the crackers. I cut a hexagon shape from the block of cheese and trimmed it into a circular shape. Next I sliced the shape into thin pieces of cheese to create several circles. If you have a cookie cutter it will be much more simple to make cirlces out of the block of cheese.
Cut small squares out of a different color of cheese to make the top of of the ornaments.
To assemble the cheese and cracker ornaments place the crackers on the plate. Add a circular slice of Stella cheese on top of the cracker. Place a small square slice of cheese above the ornament. How simple is that? Make a variety of ornaments by using different textures, flavors and colors of cheese.
