Keto Beer Cheese Spread Board
If you’ve been on social media lately, you know butter boards are all the rage. We get it – the adorable boards are an easy way to dip bread, crackers, and vegetables into butter and a delicious and beautiful array of toppings.
We love the trend and wanted to kick it up a notch – and decided to break out one of our favorite underrated ingredients – Pub Cheese! The creamy, rich, savory cheese is soft and spreadable, like softened butter, and makes for an unforgettable dip. We’re pairing it with some of our favorite party foods to make a snack board that will please your hungriest fans!
This pub cheese board is totally customizable, so feel free to add more or less, depending on your preferences.
How To Make a Pub Cheese Board
To make this board, you will need:
- Pub cheese – you can use store-bought, or your own homemade beer cheese – any soft, spreadable cheddar with a strong beer flavor.
- Crispy jalapeños – fried jalapeños give a spicy, crunchy kick in a more mellow flavor with a subtle batter.
- Jalapeños – A bit of fresh jalapeños bring a pop of bright green color and a spicy kick to the cheese spread.
- Chives – you can’t beat the combination of fresh, onion-y chives and cheddar!
- Black olives – sliced black olives bring a tart, salty, brine flavor to the cheese board.
- Bacon – bacon and cheddar are the perfect combination – it majorly ups the crave-worthy factor, adds a delicious crunch, and everyone loves bacon!
- Pork rinds – pork rinds bring a perfect crispy crunch and can also be used as a dipper!
- Beer nuts or salted peanuts – beer nuts or salted Spanish peanuts add a salty, delicious crunch that are delicious with cheese!
- Pepperoni – pepperoni adds a meaty, spicy, hearty kick to the cheese board, and a pop of color!
- Pimiento peppers or cherry tomatoes – peppers or tomatoes help to bring a bit of a bright, acidic flavor, and a pop of red to the cheese board.
Once you’ve gathered your ingredients, you’ll use the following recipe:
- Spread. Spread out pub cheese onto clean platter or cutting board.
- Layer. Decorate with toppings.
Tips and Tricks to Perfect Easy Pub Cheese Boards
Add more meat. Try crumbled sausage, chorizo, or deli meats for a heartier board.
Add vegetables. Sliced bell peppers, broccoli, carrot sticks, and celery are all delicious additions and work well with cheddar pub cheese.
Try other pub cheese flavors. Change up the flavors by trying another pub cheese flavor for a different take on this cheese board!
You can save leftovers for up to two days – but we recommend removing any toppings from the cheese. This is best consumed the day of, however.
President pub cheese is gluten-free (why we picked this brand), and if picking keto toppings, this dish can be made “dirty” keto.
