Impress Guests with a Fresh Take on Entertaining with Appetizer-Infused Holiday Tables

Boar’s Head Brand®, one of the nation’s leading providers of premium delicatessen foods, invites hosts to switch up entertaining routines by planning appetizer-infused menus along with traditional meals this season. With a mix of satisfying flavors, do-it-yourself assembly and holiday-themed treats, Boar’s Head helps hosts satisfy guests’ hunger and holiday spirit with simple bite-sized meals.

“Creative holiday hosts are always looking for new celebration concepts. That is why we are excited to offer new ideas for a trending menu alternative for gatherings – bite-sized holiday parties,” said Elizabeth Ward, director of communications for Boar’s Head Brand. “To help with these celebrations, Boar’s Head offers an array of premium cheeses and specialty meat options so hosts can impress guests with a sampling of sweet and savory appetizers to liven up gatherings and spark conversations among partygoers.”

Boar’s Head shares some suggestions for creating artisanal and appealing spreads this year:

  • Flavors of the Season: Families have considered meats and cheeses a holiday staple for years. To bring these seasonal flavors to upcoming gatherings, incorporate old world flavors into spreads and dips. Impress your guests with Gruyere, Bacon and Caramelized Onion Dip. Featuring Boar's Head Gruyere Cheese and Fully Cooked Bacon, this dip is simple yet sophisticated. (Link to recipe:
  • Encourage Lively Discussion: The essence of a great gathering is the interaction between guests. Encourage conversation as they mix and match their favorite ingredients with a fully stocked cheese board full of artisanal meats and cheeses from Boar’s Head. Pair cheeses and charcuterie, such as Picante Provolone Cheese, Manchego Cheese, Prosciutto Di Parma® and Sopressata Grande, with delectable finishing touches like grapes, crackers and pistachios. This appetizer is a breeze to make and a quick party favorite. (Link to create your own cheese board:
  • Please Gluten Free Guests: With an estimated one-third of adults choosing to cut back on gluten or eliminate gluten from their diets, ensuring there’s a gluten-free option is imperative. Add Gluten Free Blackberry Brie Tartlets to the menu for a delicious treat. This also can serve as a sweeter option that all guests can enjoy. (Link to recipe:
