Charcuterie board spreads have been one of the top food trends making the rounds on social media this past year. Why? I think these delicious and inspirational images connect with people on a few levels. First, they look beautiful, and we tend to eat with our eyes as well as our mouths. Second, eating off a charcuterie board gives adults the chance to ditch the flatware and enjoy finger food in a more refined way.
But even though charcuterie boards seem a little fancy, they don’t have to lack a sense of whimsy and fun.
Across social media, people are applying their love for both food and Disney into the art of charcuterie in some clever and yummy ways. If you need a little inspiration, all you have to do is search for #disneycharcutier in your favorite social media platform’s search bar and you’ll see that the Disney food fun is endless!
For example, lifestyle and Disney blogger Magically Megan showcased a beautiful breakfast-for-dinner charcuterie board on Instagram that was all about Mickey Mouse waffles:
You can make these authentic Disney theme park Mickey waffles by picking up the Mickey Mouse 90th Anniversary Double Flip Waffle Maker on shopDisney.com.
Meanwhile, Instagram user @confettiblvd decided to get creative with her family’s lunch. Your kids will forget all about those pre-packaged Lunchables when you present them with a Mickey Mouse-inspired board like this:
This board was given the upgrade thanks to one simple kitchen tool: a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter! You can find these all over, but I found this set of five cookie cutters for only $8.99 on Amazon.
Looking for a more traditional charcuterie board menu? Instagrammer @rat.patootie_ratatouille went all out on this savory board with assorted meats, cheeses, crackers, seeds, nuts and olives:
See the adorable little Mickey Mouse-shaped bowls Mary used to hold the seeds and the trail mix? You can find similar bowls at shopDisney.com as part of the Mickey Mouse Appetizer Bowl Set, which comes with four bowls in varying colors.
As for the charcuterie board itself, this creative lady made her own. She outlines the process in her Instagram post and it’s simple, yet puts a fun twist on the traditional board.
By using a few simple kitchen tools and some creativity, anyone can infuse mealtime with some Disney magic!
