HERE’S A STEP-BY-STEP OVERVIEW OF HOW I BUILT THE BOARD:
I started by baking the pretzels and cooking the bratwurst. While they were cooking, I scooped the pub cheese dip and bacon cheddar ranch dip into small serving bowls and placed them on the board. Then I put the mustards and apple cider jam in little serving bowls on the board. I put the cornichons, sauerkraut and beets in mini jars on the board as well.

Next, I placed the cheeses in four different spots and the grapes in three different spots on the board. I arranged some pretzel slims in the upper left corner of the board and then some in the bottom right corner of the board. I put the cheesestick crackers in the upper middle of the board.

Once the pretzels were done baking, I arranged them down the middle of the board. I sliced the cooked bratwurst into thin slices and put them near the sauerkraut. I put the pastrami between a soft pretzel and the gouda cheese in the bottom right corner of the board.

I sliced the apple and pear into thin slices and placed them in various spots across the board. I then filled in the rest of the board with the dried apricots, dried cherries and glazed pecans.

I used a 15″ x 24″ board and it could easily feed 8 people.
