- 1 Block of Cheddar Cheese
- 1 Box of Club Crackers
- 1 Summer Sausage
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Parsley for garnish
Note: I did not put any specific amounts or measurements in the ingredients above, you can use more or less of whatever you want when crafting your tree.
1) To get started, cut the cheese and sausage into desired shapes. I used squares for the cheese and sliced circles for the sausage. Be sure to cut a a few extra pieces of cheese for the tree’s stump and 5 cheese triangles to make the star at the top of the tree (including 1 tomato). Wash the cherry tomatoes and parsley and allow them to dry thoroughly. Set everything aside.
2) Grab a large plate, cutting board, flat dish, or whatever you are using to serve the appetizer. Starting at the bottom of the plate, lay down the cheese first to make the tree stump, then add some tomatoes, a row of parsley, then cheese, then crackers, then sausage, all the way up. Be sure to make the rows at the bottom of the tree the longest and shorten them as you go up to get that nice triangular Christmas tree look.
3) Once you have gotten close to the top, seal it off with a little parsley and create the star at the top of the tree with the 5 triangle pieces of cheese and the single tomato. Make sure everything lines up nicely, you should now have a complete Christmas tree!
