Well, football season is the new holiday season, and I am someone who loves a football party for pure gathering aspect. As a busy mom, I don’t get to enjoy football games as often as I’d like, but I can put together a fun and fancy cheeseboard that keep all my football fans super happy! I have a cheeseboard today that is full of items kids and adults love, while also being very simple to put together. I put a little fanciness to it with some fun glasses and cranberries in our Coca-Cola™. Makes my guests feel special with a little extra touch to our beverages. Coca-Cola is our favorite special drink for game days because it’s so good, and makes the cheese, crackers and finger-food taste even better.
When putting together a yummy cheese board, I like to include a few things:
Soft Cheeses like Brie and Mozzarella, as well as traditional harder cheeses like Sharp Cheddar. In this spread I used Brie as the center with slices of Sharp Cheddar and Gouda as the compliments.
Most football fans love some meat, so I included turkey and salami to pair with the harder cheeses. I LOVE anything with figs, and to keep it simple, I grabbed and cut up some fig newtons to pair with the brie on a rosemary cracker. That was my favorite combo to sip with my Coca-Cola™ Zero Sugar.
My little football fans love the fig newtons and crackers along with apples and cheddar and butter crackers. I have to monitor them or they will eat it all!
To make it a little fancier, I sprinkled cranberries and rosemary, as well as served our Coca-Cola™ Zero Sugar in some fun mugs. I threw in some ice and cranberries to bring a little spice to our party.
Important aspects of a cheeseboard are meats, various cheeses, fruit and something sweet like a jam or grapes, or in this case, fig newtons. Those went over really well! Make it larger than you think. This spread didn’t last as long as I wanted, and with my boys and a few other guests, we ate it all up too fast, so add more crackers and cheese than you’d expect!
