When it comes to holiday entertaining, the main meal is really just the beginning. The snacks that come before and even after the meal are just as important to your menu.
One of my favorite ways to take the stress out of holiday entertaining is by serving up delicious cheese trays and charcuterie boards. I can easily feed a few or a big group, and the best part is that there’s no cooking needed! Gather various cheeses and meats and put them out with a variety of Breton Crackers on a board or tray and you are in business.
Thanks to the sale happening at Publix, I can stock up on all those amazing crackers and serve up lots of tasty snacks.
Stock up for all your holiday needs while you can save. With a big selection of crackers available at your local Publix, you can get exactly what you need no matter what’s on the menu.

With just one board, and an abundant mix of Breton Crackers, I can impress my guests with a tasty pre-meal appetizer that super simple to prepare. It’s the perfect starter when served up a couple of hours before the main meal. I have found that it helps fill bellies so that I don’t have to worry about guests having to wait… in case my meal is running a bit behind.
And those tasty crackers that work with savory meats and cheeses are also ideal as a sweet treat too! Breton Crackers are a must have for my Caramel Pecan Crisps. A little bit sweet and a little bit salty, these tasty treats are absolutely fantastic as part of a charcuterie tray or served alone as a delicious dessert. One batch is never enough at my house. I’ll make a couple and store them in tins so folks can grab them anytime they want that perfect sweet and savory snack!

There’s no cinnamon or salt in the ingredients, but listed in the recipe. How much of each for the recipe?
Sorry I copied from my cheesecake recipe as it’s basically the same topping 😉
No additional salt or cinnamon in this version!
