This is the 3rd year I’ll be making my family-famous Turkey Day Charcuterie Board.

My mom hosts Thanksgiving at her house and is always the main chef of the day. In recent years, she’s passed on the duties of side dishes and appetizers to me, my cousin and aunt… which has helped her tremendously!

I’m usually on appetizer duty. I didn’t want to prepare an appetizer that would overtake the main meal of the day, but I still wanted a festive flare.

Let me know if you give this one a try… it’s so fun!
