Hot Dog Board

Hot Dog Board


CUT an 8 oz block of your favorite white cheese in half along the width to get 12 stars using a star-shaped cookie cutter; repeat for 18 total stars. Using a blue napkin as the background to your stars, arrange the cheese stars in the top left corner of your sanitized surface or board.

Once all your ingredients are prepared, you’re ready to assemble the hot dog board! Prepare your sanitized surface (approximately 30 inches x 17.5 inches, or the size of your choice) and place the blue napkin in the top left corner taking up approximately (12 inches by 7.5 inches). Set your stars up in alternating rows of 5 across then 4 across, evenly spaced out. Lineup all of your hot dogs in straight rows in the remaining space on the board to resemble our diagram above.
