When you receive your Nosh grazing board or box, your first thought is 'I'm totally going to eat everything here... twice!' We definitely hope you do, however you just might have a few leftovers. There may be some cheese, meats and condiments hanging out. Of course, you can store them and snack on them the next day, but why not be a little more creative. Here are a few ways you can put good use to your leftover charcuterie treats.
Cheese: those cubes of cheese can be added to scrambled eggs, grilled cheese, or use as a topper for a bowl of chili. How about mashed potatoes!? If you have ever had the Green Goddess Gouda, it is spectacular in homemade mashed potatoes! Combine red potatoes, gouda, heavy cream, butter and salt/pepper to taste.
2. Cured Meats: leftover salami can be sliced and thrown into a pasta or chef salad.
Salami can also be used to wrap cornichon pickles for a quick snack. I also really
love these antipasti bites. Just place the salami in a muffin tin and bake at 350
degrees for 7-10 minutes. Fill the cups with artichoke hearts, mozarella cheese,
roasted red peppers and top with fresh basil.
3. Chevoo: Our grazing boards now have a new accessory! Chevoo marinated goat
cheese. The varying flavors are subtle and don't overpower the delicate goat
cheese. I'm sure you have enjoyed the goat cheese spread on crackers but were
probably wondering what to do with the oil? The oil can be used to dress salads,
pasta or combined with herbs for a dipping oil for toasted bread. The
combinations are endless. Click here to see how I used my Chevoo!
4. Fruit: Fruit can be added to a morning smoothie or a bowl of greek yogurt.
Berries are a great compliment for overnight oats; drizzle honey or almond
butter on top for added sweetness.
I hope this gives you some great ideas to use anything left on your charcuterie board. Have fun with the possibilities and let me know what dishes you have created!
