We can always count on TikTok to inspire us with new creative snacking ideas, and there’s been a new viral food trend spreading across the platform that you’re going to want to try out. It’s called the butter board. Haven’t heard of it? Let us catch you up to speed.
The board, which resembles the aesthetic of a cheese board, features just what you’d thinking — lots and lots of butter. But what makes it so interesting is that each board can be altered with endless variations of flavors to infuse the butter with meats, sprinkles of cheese, oils, glazes, seasonings and more to create the ultimate flavor combo for bread and crackers.
I like this one idk I’m in a silly goofy butter mood
TikTok foodie and influencer Justine Doiron (justine_snacks) was the first to share (and go viral) over the mouth-watering butter-filled appetizer, but credits the idea to cookbook author Joshua McFadden. Doiron admitted to being immediately inspired by the butter board recipe in the chef’s James Beard Award-winning masterpiece, Six Seasons, and it simply tasted too good to not share it with the world.
While Gigi Hadid’s delicious spicy vodka pasta dinner kept us all in the kitchen wanting more, the butter board trend involves next-level creativity — and no actual cooking necessary. Each can be personalized and spruced up to your liking, but Dioron seems to swear that the key to nailing your creation is to have the perfect mix of both savory and sweet.
To accompany the spread, serve it with slices of fresh bread or crackers. For the savory lovers, sourdough bread will add an even more delicious kick. Those who love their sweets, opt for a cinnamon or challah-like bread.
Butter boards take charcuterie and appetizers to the next level, and we can guarantee it will be the talk of table at your next get-together. Perfect for holidays, hangouts or date nights — all you need is a board, butter, toppings and some bread and you will be good to go!
