Bagel Holiday Party Charcuterie Board

Bagel Holiday Party Charcuterie Board

Bagel Holiday Party Charcuterie Board charcuterie board most frequently consists of a variety of meats, dry, smoked or canned fish, gourmet cheeses, condiments, pickled products and often fruit or nuts.

It is exceptionally effortless to prepare a charcuterie, and you can truly use whatever your heart desires.

However, charcuterie boards are an art form that involves much more mindful planning than just tossing divergent cheeses and crackers on a plate and serving it to guests.

I partnered with Reese Specialty Foods to show you how you can make your own holiday party charcuterie board more superior by using their incredibly tasty products.

Bagel Holiday Party Charcuterie Board

The board should look full, so don’t be afraid to stack loads of your favorite foods. It was an absolute blast constructing this Bagel Holiday Party Charcuterie Board.

My family went insane over it. My husband and I, in particular, love the taste of Reese Marinated Artichoke Hearts paired perfectly with some Reese Sardines. It is utterly scrumptious and so flavorful!

I know those two products are for sure going in rotation as my top pick snack during this winter. I will share even more thoughts and ideas on my Instagram.

If I am hosting a party, plan a movie night, or watch a big weekend game, I make a list of things that I would like to include on my board.

Bagel Holiday Party Charcuterie Board

If you make this delectable meal for yourself on a Friday night, you can incorporate Anchovies, Delicate Artichokes Hearts, cheese, luscious grapes along with some gourmet crackers.

However, for a party, a wider array of arrangements would be required to feed and completely satisfy an eager crowd.

This time around, I used Marinated hearts of palm, Marinated Artichoke, and their most mouthwatering and succulent Sardines.

The holiday season should be enjoyed, and less stressful, so create something dainty and versatile.

One thing is certain, I passionately love Reese Specialty Foods. Their innovative products are Non-GMO Project Verified.

Best Things to Buy at Aldi

What I always must get when I shop at Aldi.

Aldi is the brand of two German family-owned discount supermarkets, and my family loves shopping at this grocery store.

You will need a quarter to get a cart unless you want to carry everything in your arms.

If you do not have a quarter, you may exchange a dollar at the cashier. Sometimes the cashier will give you a quarter so that you could use a cart, though, which shows just how amazing their customer service is. You may repay the kindness by returning that quarter later after you finish your shopping.

Regarding bags, you may use reusable bags in stores, repurpose empty cardboard boxes from inside the store, or purchase paper or plastic bags at checkout.

Paper bags are 7 cents, and plastic bags 10 cents in Nashville, TN.

Since coming to the USA, I’ve been doing grocery shopping at Aldi most of the time because their products are high-quality; I genuinely like what they offer.

Some of the things you must get that’s worth your buck:

Items for Charcuterie board

  • You will find so many different, High-quality and inexpensive cheeses that look and taste expensive at Aldi. Pretty impressive!
  • Dry salami, prosciutto, smoked fish, and deli meat.
  • Nuts: pistachio, peanuts, almonds, etc.
  • Dry Fruit: figs, apricots, etc.
  • Pickled vegetables: gherkins or pickles, olives, stuffed mini peppers, pickled jalapenos, etc.
  • Crackers: gluten-free options, pita chips, entertainment crackers, etc.
  • Fresh produce.

Best Things to Buy at Aldi

Fish, Bacon and Ground Beef

  • I love purchasing raw meat and fish at Aldi. It is always the best quality, and I have never seen their meat mixed with old ones; some stores are mixing old and new ground beef, which is disgusting and wrong.
  • I would highly RECOMMEND Aldi’s beef, fish such as salmon, pork/bacon, even the chicken. I have never had a problem with it, so put that on your list if you eat fish and meat.

Best Things to Buy at Aldi

Fresh Produce

I feel like everyone already knows about Aldi’s inexpensive produce.

  • Not only will you find a plethora of fresh fruit and veggies, but it’s all of excellent quality and pretty affordable. I get probably a week’s worth of produce. Most of the time, when farmer markets are closed during winter, I get all of it at Aldi because I love what they carry and how fresh it all looks.
  • Some of my favorite fresh produce from Aldi: mushrooms, mixed greens, assorted mini tomatoes, English cucumber, mini cucumbers, peppers, cabbage, cauliflower, pears, bananas, avocados, kiwi, etc.

Best Things to Buy at Aldi

Low-Carb Bread, Tortillas, or Wraps

Some of my favorite wraps come from ALDI.

When I started the low-carb and keto journey, I had to change my lifestyle; it was mostly to clear brain fog, help me mentally, and, of course, to lose weight.

This lifestyle gave me so much more. I love going to Aldi every week to find excellent products that fit and support my lifestyle. Their bread and wraps are a Lifesaver. I can make a quick snack or when a meal using their wraps.

They are fantastic, and even if you are not on a low-carb diet, they carry gluten-free bread, baked goods, and wraps, as well as regular carbolicious items. 

 

Share some of your favorite Aldi finds. Please tag me on social media or Instagram. @sandraseasycooking using hashtag #sandraseasycooking and let me know. Also. this post is not sponsored. I was not paid to talk about Aldi!

Phyllo Triangles Stuffed with Cheese

Phyllo Triangles Stuffed with Cheese

Phyllo Triangles Stuffed with Cheese is a fantastic appetizer, party food, or you could just eat it as a snack. I grew up eating this tasty treat just stuffed with cow cheese mixed with eggs, then stuffed in the homemade dough.

Many of you call this one Greek Tiropitas. However, people from the country that I grew up in know it as sirnica, gibanica, burek sa sirom, or pita sa sirom and all that means cheese pie which is savory. I will post a recipe for my tasty cheese pie which is, in my opinion, better than a pizza.

 

Phyllo Triangles Stuffed with Cheese

I love phyllo dough. It is so versatile and we can make so many sweet and savory dishes or desserts using these incredible sheets.

What do you make with phyllo dough sheets? Usually, I would make it stuffed with ground beef, also known as Burek or Börek simply because my lovely family requests that one the most.

TAP HERE FOR MORE TASTY APPETIZER IDEAS

That being said, I absolutely love it stuffed with shredded potatoes, which are sauteed with onions and well seasoned prior to stuffing it in the dough.

Oh, my mouth is watering as I was writing this one, which is probably the reason to make it asap.

Anyways, these are phenomenal to pack for school or work lunch. When my kids were actually taking lunches to school I would pack these for them. They are convenient and delicious hot or cold.

Also, if you do not want to bake all these triangles at once just pack in between wax paper or parchment paper and place in an airtight container then freeze.

They freeze beautifully, but I am not sure about cooked pastry. They probably do freeze well too.

You see, in my house, they never last too long so everything is eaten as soon as I serve them on the table. Well, most of the time we eat it for lunch just like this with some protein on the side as well as salad.

I am sure that you would be able to air-fry them too. Nevertheless, I have not tried that one yet, but if you by any chance air-fry them, please let us know. I would love to hear how they turned out.

Another great idea is that you could add sauteed or defrosted pinch in the cheese mixture. Just make sure to squeeze all the moisture out.

Phyllo Triangles Stuffed with Cheese

Yield: Serves 4-6
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Phyllo Triangles Stuffed with Cheese is an amazing appetizer, party food, or you could just eat it as a snack. Easy, simple, and delicious!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb. feta cheese, 1 pound block and you crumble the cheese yourself
  • 1 block cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tbsp sour cream (optional)
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 lb. phyllo dough thawed 20-24 sheets
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp oil

Instructions

  1. Mix eggs, and cream cheese with an electric mixer if possible, add ground black pepper then crumbled feta cheese. It is better to get a block of cheese than pre-crumbled, it takes you less than 20 seconds to crumble the cheese yourself, but it makes a huge difference. Trust me!
  2. Now take one phyllo dough and unwarp. You will find two in one package. These measurements are or about 24 sheets. Please read the notes.
  3. Place all the sheets on the dumbed cotton kitchen towel and cover. It is best if you work on a cutting board or similar.
  4. Melt unsalted butter and add two tablespoons of oil, mix well. You can use clarified butter instead. If non is available using only oil will work as well.
  5. Take one sheet and butter it completely. Make sure not to press too hard, just brush lightly with your pastry brush or similar, then place another sheet on the top. Run a sharp knife down the sheet lengthwise in half. You will have 2 triangles using two sheets of phyllo dough.
  6. Place two tablespoons of cheese mixture at the end of the strip. Fold over the corner to make a triangle. Continue folding from side to side till you get to the end of the strip. Place on a baking sheet. Brush tops with a bit of butter. Repeat the process until you’ve used up all of your fillings. I usually make around 12 to 14 with one half.
  7. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Allow these tringles to cool before serving. I usually serve them with salad.

Notes

  • Phyllo, Filo, or Fillo comes in all shapes and sizes but for this recipe, use 1 pound pack of sheets. Athens is the only available brand for me. I get it in Publix or Kroger, freezer section where you find frozen novelties or desserts; ice creams, pies, pie shells, whipped cream in the tub, etc.
  • The pack contains two 8-oz bags of (APPROXIMATELY) 20 sheets each measuring 9 x 14-inches.
  • My pack came with two like any other pack, HOWEVER, sometimes one pack has more sheets than the other and I was not aware until I started to WRITE this recipe because my facts were not matching. So one-half pack came with 24 sheets which would make 14 triangles. On the pack, it did say approximately 20 in each. The recipe is not off, it just that my box of phyllo was not correct. I just counted the other pack and it got only 18 CT. sheets.
  • WITH THAT BEING SAID, FOR THIS CHEESE MIXTURE MEASUREMENT YOU CAN MAKE 12 TO 14 TRIANGLES, DEPENDING HOW MUCH YOU ADD IN. For each triangle, you will need two sheets. I hope that makes sense to you if not just comment below.
