Have you ever thought about making a disposable charcuterie board so you didn’t have to worry about getting the wooden board back the next day? Well I sure have!

A disposable charcuterie board is a one-time-use board or box made of materials like paper, bamboo, or plastic that is designed to serve as a base for arranging and displaying charcuterie or other food items.

It is meant to be discarded after use, making it a convenient and easy option for events or gatherings where reusable boards may not be practical or desired. I have used recyclable items like a recyclable box with a clear lid, disposable plates, disposable serving trays. All of which make the perfect grazing board for a baby shower or special event.

Disposable Charcuterie boards Are A Great Thing

Disposable charcuterie boards can be taken almost anywhere and you don’t have to worry about returning a wooden board.

I have taken a disposable palm leaf platter to holiday parties, a bridal shower and a birthday celebration. Different venues have different rules so be sure to ask prior to bringing your various goodies to your next party.

If you include greasy foods like French fries, chicken nuggets or charcuterie meats in your box, use a barrier.

A good idea is to use a piece of parchment paper to prevent any moisture penetration through the box. You can also wrap bread sticks in parchment to keep them fresh.

Your selection results are endless when it comes to which delicious appetizers or small bites you choose.

  1. Choose a disposable board or box: Select a disposable board made of material that suits the environment, your needs and budget. For example, you can use a paper plate, a bamboo tray, a palm leaf board or a plastic platter. Using these items will give you plenty of room for your favorite foods.
  2. Gather the charcuterie items: Choose a variety of charcuterie items such as meats, cheeses, fruits, nuts, crackers, seasonal fruits and bread. Remember to inquire about food allergies or dietary restrictions.
  3. Arrange the items: Begin by placing the larger items such as cheese and meat in the center of the board. Then, add the smaller items around them. You can create a symmetrical pattern, or arrange items in a more random fashion.
  4. Fill the gaps: Fill any empty spaces with smaller items like nuts or berries to make the board look full.
  5. Add final touches: Add any final touches such as herbs or edible flowers to enhance the presentation.

Once the board is complete, it is ready to serve! Just remember to grab your mobile device, take a pic then dispose of it after use.
