Notes for Healthy Charcuterie Cups

Use a fancy toothpick to match the theme of your party

Design a special paper cup or sticker to enhance the theme of your party

Consider making each cup different so guests can choose their favorite

Meat Options: Any dried or cured meats are a must for any charcuterie. Some great options include pepperoni, salami, prosciutto, or pancetta. Try adding a good quality sliced turkey or ham for variety.

Fruit Options: I always like to use the most popular fresh fruit espcially since the cups are limited by space. Some options are berries, grapes, melon or apples.  But be sure to add apples right before serving so that they do not get brown.

Vegetable Options: Vegetables always add in a nice healthy variety and balance from all the hearty meats, cheeses and nuts. I usually keep mine simple with some sliced cucumbers, baby carrots, grape tomatoes, olives or pickles.

Cheese Options: You could use a variety of hard and semi-soft cheeses in your appetizer cups but I do not recommend using a very soft cheese like goat cheese or blue cheese. These will get all over your other elements and leave a mess. Some good options include any type of hard cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, chunks of asiago, gruyere or Havarti to name a few. Be careful not to cut cheese too early as it can get dried out

Nuts Options: I have used many varieties of nuts. Anything goes here from spicy almonds, pistachios, a candied pecan or keep it simple with a basic nut mix.  It’s perfect to line the bottom of the cup with the nut choice.

Carb Options: Every good charcuterie needs some carbs involved! You could keep it simple with some crackers, bagel chips, toasted bread, or small breadsticks. I use gluten free options so that it’s great for everybody and most people won’t know the difference.
