How to Make a Turkey Charcuterie Board

While you may assume a turkey board is all about the turkey meat, we’ve got a surprise for you. It can be anything you want—just make sure you’ve got a little turkey friend to represent the bird!

One crafter on Instagram made a turkey with small bowls of hummus plus sliced bell peppers fanning out in every direction. You can also add cucumbers, cheddar cheese, olives, cured meats, bread and salami.

Feel free to go totally classic with slices of roasted turkey, gravy, potatoes, corn and cranberry. It’d be the perfect remix for family dinner. Plus, sweet and savory all-in-one is always a winner.

You Can Use Candy and Fruit, Too

The turkey charcuterie board doesn’t have to be the main event. Make it a fruity side dish with an orange turkey in the middle and plenty of grapes, pineapple, melon and berries for the plumage.

You can even go full dessert mode and completely candify your board. Start a holiday dessert board with a chocolate or marshmallow bird middle and add cookies, orange and brown M&M’s, chocolate and TONS of candy corn.

Whatever direction you choose will be a hit with the family!
