Holiday entertaining can be stressful, but it really doesn’t have to be. Sometimes less is more and most will agree that they prefer quality over quantity — and that’s not only true for the food and drinks you serve, but the guests you invite. Holiday parties usually mean a lot of light bites and simple snacking, which makes it a little easier on you, the hostess. It is also a fun way to get creative with some pretty simple yet delicious ingredients.
Cheese is the perfect choice
Cheese is an entertaining staple whether it is a last minute get together or a full-on holiday feast. With so many parties happening this time of year, cheese doesn’t just have to be a side dish but it can also be the main attraction. The quickest way to put together a simple no fuss holiday party is with cheese. You can buy many seasonal ingredients that will make for a nice holiday spread in minutes. The best thing about this type of party planning is that it doesn’t take a lot of time to prepare.
Cracker Barrel Cheese is the perfect cheese to have on hand for the holiday entertaining season. The fine quality and rich flavor will impress all your guests. Cracker Barrel Cheese is known for being very smooth and sharp — the rich creamy texture is what truly sets it apart. Their unique aging process is what makes this award winning cheese so distinctive. What I love about Cracker Barrel Cheese is the consistency in flavor and that when you see the distinctive square packaging you know you are getting a quality product. It really helps take the guess work out of choosing a cheese.
Perfect for a quick bite
The individual packs of Cracker Barrel Cheese are the perfect tasty snack for a quick, on-the-go option while running errands to prepare for Thanksgiving dinner or prepping for your annual holiday bash. These snack-size cheese packs will also help keep the kids from sticking their fingers in the mashed potatoes! These are also perfect for making those leftover turkey sandwiches.
Fall cheese pairing ideas:
1. Aged Reserve + salami + roasted red pepper + honey mustard + baguette
2. Extra Sharp + apple + cranberry sauce + cinnamon raisin bread
3. Vermont White + bacon + maple syrup + challah bread
For your holiday entertaining, always have on hand a variety of nuts, seasonal fruits, honey, jams and an assortment of breads and crackers to choose from. You can also make it more filling by including prosciutto ham, roast beef and salami. Encourage people to create their own pairings — anything goes!
