- Delicious and nutritious

- Crowd pleaser

- Includes a balanced variety of food
- Jones Dairy Farm Braunschweiger – The Jones Dairy Farm liverwurst has rich flavor and a creamy smooth texture that is unparalleled! I’ve used the chub here, but you could also used the sliced variety.
- Spreads – I like to include a variety of spreads like sour cherry jam, caramelized onion jam, and spicy brown mustard.
- Cheese – I got a little help on this one from the cheese store, but they recommended a soft triple-cream cheese (twist my arm!) like lincet or brie.
- Meats – You don’t need to add any other meats to the board, but if you want to add more variety, go for an aged salami or your favorite cured meat like prosciutto.
- Crackers – I recommend serving a few different dippers on charcuterie boards. Use a plain cracker to really let the other flavors shine.
- Toast – I wanted to add toast points to the board because a Braunschweiger sandwich is a very classic way to enjoy it. So the toast points are a nod to that. You could also swap it out for other crackers.
- Accompaniments – I recommend filling out your board with extras like nuts, cornichons, olives, or anything else that doesn’t fit into the other categories. Here we’ve gone with marcona almonds. You can also add garnishes like rosemary or hydrangea leaves.
- Produce – Use fresh produce that is easy to eat and serve. Persian cucumbers, radishes, grapes, and apples are all great options. Dried fruit is also a great addition.

Well, it all depends on what you consider healthy, of course, but it is an excellent source of protein, iron, and vitamins so I would say yes. Each serving has 9 grams of protein and 25% of the daily value for iron!
