I love a good build-your-own meal to feed my favorite people and this Ultimate Build-Your-Own Sandwich Board is one of my go-tos!

It’s covered with a great assortment of fillings so that each person can build their perfect sandwich. The excitement on people’s faces when they approach the board is pretty awesome. You can just see their eyes grow big and a smile of concentration on their faces as they choose their bread, meats, cheeses, veggies and spreads. The combinations are exhilarating and endless!

I love the variety a good build-your-own sandwich board offers. And the beauty is that there’s no cooking required! Choose the breads, meats, cheeses, veggies and spreads that your crowd or family will enjoy most. Use what you have on hand and put it on the board, then serve it and let everyone enjoy! We love making sandwich boards for a casual Saturday lunch, football watch parties, and Sunday night supper.

Here’s some more build-your-own sandwich board inspiration from page 133 of my Beautiful Boards cookbook.

If you board it, they will come!

I just get a big wooden board and arrange it so that people can easily grab what they need to build their own sandwich. Of course, I base the size of the board off of how many people I need to feed. I’ve made a sandwich board to feed 4 and a board to feed 20+. The larger the crowd, the bigger the board. More breads, more meats, more cheeses…you get it!

Here are some of my favorite size boards to build sandwich boards on:
