What Is A Charcuterie Board?

A charcuterie board is an arrangement of cured meats, cheeses, fruits, and other small foods perfect for sharing. This modern Latin charcuterie board includes different types of Spanish cheese, cured meats, fruits (both fresh and dried), nuts, and crackers!

The size of the charcuterie board can vary based on the number of guests you’re entertaining.


What Is The Role Of Charcuterie Board Crackers?

While charcuterie board crackers may appear uninteresting at first glance, they are essential to the experience.

A delicious cracker is more than just a vehicle for creamy goat cheese or smoked gouda. It adds a necessary contrast and texture to the cheeses, fruits’ smoothness, and the meat’s chewiness.

Without the best crackers for a charcuterie board, the entire experience can fall flat. So, it is important to choose a cracker that complements the other ingredients and enhances their flavors.

The 15 Best Crackers For Charcuterie Board (With A Latin Twist)

1. Tortas De Aceite (Sweet Olive Oil Crisps)

Starting with one of my absolute favorites, these traditional handmade Spanish crisps, called tortas de aceite (Ines Rosales Original Sweet Olive Oil Tortas), are sooo flaky and technically not crackers. Still, they can be broken into smaller pieces.

You could call this something between the best bread for a charcuterie or the best cracker for a charcuterie. Either way, they’re perfect with dips, cheeses, and cured meats.

2. The Original Water Crackers

Let’s continue with a neutral cracker, the classic palate cleanser: the water cracker. It has a nice texture and pairs well with cured meats, strong cheeses like blue cheese, and aged smoked gouda.

Whole Foods’ organic water crackers have a balanced flavor with hints of garlic and herbs.

3. Toasted Guava Crackers (GF)

I love Craize, a Latin brand redefining snacking. Their guava crackers (you’ll see a few more flavors make this list!) are exceptionally crispy and delicious, making this top 15 best charcuterie board crackers. The guava flavor comes through without making it overwhelmingly sweet.

This toasted guava charcuterie cracker is excellent with mild cheeses like light Spanish or drunken goat cheese. I haven’t tried this one with a triple cream brie, but this combination could be incredibly delicious.

4. Toasted Coconut Crackers (GF)

Another winner by Craize, these toasted coconut crackers are coconutty and slightly sweet, less savory. Like sweet corn crackers, this coconut version is crispy! This charcuterie cracker pairs well with nuts and fresh fruits.

However, if you’re not a fan of coconut, then I’d stick with the corn cracker.

5. Organic Wheat Square Crackers

These bite-sized savory organic square wheat crackers have a buttery flavor and are thin and crisp, making them perfect for pairing with spreadable cheeses and spicy, savory dips.

This cracker is an excellent addition to your charcuterie board as it won’t be too dominant and can complement a range of different flavor combinations.

6. Rosemary Garlic Crackers

The Moonshot plant-based rosemary garlic cracker is so savory and crispy! The rosemary garlic flavor goes well with both mild and more pungent cheeses.

It’s also a slightly larger bite-sized cracker, which makes it perfect for enjoying larger slices of cured meats and cheese.

7. Everything Like The Bagel Crackers

These crisp and delicious organic everything crackers by Firehook are baked.

And if you enjoy the taste of caraway or mild licorice, you’ll love Trader Joe’s Everything Cracker. This cracker pairs well with mild cheese, cured meats, and fresh fruits such as blueberries and blackberries.

This one would pair well with a light queso de cabra or light goat cheese.

8. Strawberry and Jalapeño Crisps

Wow, these strawberry and jalapeño crisps from Trader Joe’s really pack a spicy punch! Depending on your luck, you might end up with a particularly spicy crisp.

These crisps/crackers are ideal for a charcuterie board, as the small pieces of dried strawberries and subtle kick go perfectly with tangy cheeses like goat cheese, fresh mozzarella, or manchego

9. Sweet Plantain Crackers

Here’s a unique addition to your charcuterie crackers – gluten-free corn-based plantain crackers from Craize. Plantains are a common ingredient in Latin cuisine and taste great when paired with salty cured meats.

Perhaps not one that you imagined on your charcuterie board, but these crackers are crispy, delicious, and flavorful.

10. Organic Naan Crackers

Organic Naan Crackers. Think of them as your trusty sidekick in the quest for the perfect bite. They’ve got this fantastic, subtle flavor that doesn’t compete with your carefully selected cheeses and meats.

Their texture? Crispy, yet just the right amount of chewy. They can handle a nice slice of creamy brie, sharp cheddar, or even some cured salami without crumbling under pressure.

Basically, if you’re hunting for a versatile cracker that can effortlessly blend with any flavor profile, these Organic Naan Crackers won’t disappoint.

11. Organic Garlic Naan Crackers

Similar to plain naan crackers, Trader Joe’s garlic naan crackers are crispy yet slightly airy. Their strong garlic taste complements creamy cheese such as brie and salty Spanish salami or prosciutto.

The texture of these naan crackers can stand up to any topping, including a thicker dip like hummus or gooey cheese.

12. Roasted Corn Crackers

Once again, Craize has made the list with its roasted corn crackers. These crackers contain white corn grits and pre-cooked corn flour, giving them a distinct corn flavor similar to arepas.

They have a slight sweetness like most crackers, making them a great match for salty pairings such as cheese and meat.

13. Date And Almond Crisps

You’re not going to believe the magic that Date and Almond Crisps bring to your charcuterie board. They’re so much more than just a cracker, honestly.

These have natural sweetness from the dates and the perfect crunch from the almonds – they’re a game-changer.

If you’re the type of person who loves a hint of sweetness with their savory, these are your go-to. Try them with strong blue cheese or creamy goat cheese.

14. Cranberry And Hazelnut Crisps

These cranberry and hazelnut crisps dance between sweet, tart, and savory.

I love pairing them with a robust cheddar or even a creamy brie to really let the unique flavors shine. They even stand up against stronger meats.

These will elevate your charcuterie board!

15. Seeded Crackers

Another winner by Craize, this seeded cracker is savory, nutty, and crispy. Pairs incredibly well with light or stronger cheeses and cured meats.

16. Bonus: Palmier Cookies (Organic Heart Of Gold Cookies)

These heart-shaped palmiers may not be crackers, but they have a charm that can enhance any charcuterie board.

They add subtle sweetness, and their stunning appearance is a beautiful addition to a colorful and abundant charcuterie board.

FAQs

How Many Crackers Do I Need For A Small Charcuterie Board?

Having at least one type of cracker to pair with each type of cheese is recommended.

What Makes A Cracker The Best Cracker For Charcuterie Boards?

The perfect cracker for your charcuterie board depends on its flavor, texture, size, and shape. It should complement the cheeses, meats, and fruits on your board. For instance, if you have a strong cheese like bleu cheese, you’ll want to pair it with a lighter cracker to balance the flavor.
