Recipe Tips


Arrange meats and cheeses on large board or platter. Fill in spaces with small bunches of grapes, and bowls of olives, peppers, artichoke hearts and nuts. Add crackers. Serve additional crackers in bowls or baskets next to the board.


Meat and cheese boards can be prepared for any number of servings, depending on the size of the gathering. Use a guideline of 1 oz. cheese, 1/2 oz. meat and 1 oz. (or labeled serving size) of crackers* per person. For a well-balanced board, fill in empty spaces on board with fruit and marinated vegetables. For the 16 servings shown here, figure on purchasing 1 lb. of cheese and 1/2 lb. of thinly sliced meat. Have plenty of RITZ Crackers, TRISCUIT Crackers and WHEAT THINS Snacks available for guests to choose from, along with the fruit and marinated vegetables.  *Serving size of RITZ Crackers is 1/2 oz.
