It’s a few days before Thanksgiving, which means you may be scrambling and running around trying to finalize your holiday menu. There’s so much to think about when you decide to host Thanksgiving, and making sure you have everything set and ready to go can be stressful. If you’re feeling the weight of executing the “perfect” feast this year, one way you can make your life a lot easier is by choosing an easy and crowd-pleasing appetizer for your guests, like a charcuterie board.

Charcuterie boards at their core are boards full of cheese and preserved meats, but people often put their own flare to these boards by sometimes adding ingredients like fruit, vegetables, dips, and chocolates. People have also taken the concept of a charcuterie board and made it fully vegan, leaving out the meat and cheese and swapping in their preferred snacks. Whatever you choose to put on your board, the idea is that you’ll have your guests gathered around the charcuterie, chatting away and building anticipation of the main course.

If you already have your preferred charcuterie ideas, then go ahead and get to it! But if you need some help and inspiration and want to make something that will really impress your guests, try one of the following 10 charcuterie board ideas for your Thanksgiving dinner.
