And yes – this post is titled “how to make a cheese plate,” but you can follow these basic steps to make allllll kinds of party platters! Our cheese plate today has a bit of meat included (cheese and charcuterie FTW!) and I also like to round things out with crackers, fruit, sausage, or whatever seasonal produce I have on hand (more on that later!)
I’ll cover things like building seasonal cheese plates, what to include on your cheese plate, and how to make a cheap cheese plate (because BUDGET) later on – but let’s start with the ASSEMBLY. Cheese plates can look very proper and fancy, but I’m going to let you in on a secret: It is SO. EASY. to build a fancy cheese plate – you just need to follow this basic order of operations.
Don’t be afraid to get creative and have fun with it – you’re already on your way to making a perfect cheese plate every time!
