How ‘Last-Minute’ Becomes a Family Fave

I put together this American Flag Cheese Tray as a last-minute 4th of July snack lunch and it was such a huge hit with my family! We all oohed and aahed over it as we gathered around to dig in to all the deliciousness.

It has been such a big hit over the years for patriotic holidays that a version definitely needed to be included in my Beautiful Boards cookbook. I just love seeing so many people, all over the country, recreating it to celebrate our great country on Memorial Day and Labor Day.

13 Stripes, One Epic Cheese Tray

I created the flag shape with all red, white and blue foods. Red fruits, veggies, crackers and meat. White cheeses, nuts and crackers. Blueberries (and a blueberry covered cheese log on this edition) with white cheese cut into little stars with a mini star cutter. It all came together for one stunning patriotic platter!

Where to Buy an American Flag Tray!

I used an American Flag decorated serving tray that I got from Target a few years ago to easily create the flag design and I’m so sad to say that they don’t carry it anymore (please bring it back, Target!). No need to worry though, I searched around and found a few other great looking American Flag Trays you could use:

How to Build an American Flag Cheese Tray

  • Using a large rectangle serving platter (preferably one decorated like an American Flag), arrange the red, white and blue foods into the American flag design.
  • Blueberries and a blueberry covered goat cheese log create the base for the little white stars cut from a white cheese of your choice. The remaining ingredients are laid out on the tray alternating red and white foods to create the stripes.
  • Serve and enjoy!
