6 months ago, “butter board” wasn’t a frequently used phrase, and certainly not a viral phenomenon. But here we are in November of 2022 and Butter Boards are the food item to bring to any holiday party, or simply enjoy at home. If you have yet to hear of them, they are basically a charcuterie board that is slathered with softened butter and an assortment of toppings and then served with bread for dipping. The easiest of appetizers to assemble and the most delicious to eat. Whether you like sweet, savory, spicy, or flavorful, there’s something for everyone to love with the right butter board. We’ve curated a list of 15 butter boards that are perfect for celebrating the holidays with friends and family!
