If you're planning a party and need an easy-to-prepare appetizer to please the crowd, you can't go wrong with a cheese and crackers tray. Serve a variety of cheese, or stick to the most popular types, to accommodate the guests' tastes. Cut a large, semi-hard block of cheese, such as cheddar and Colby, into bite-size cubes for convenience. Arrange the cheese cubes on a decorative tray or platter to create a mouth-watering presentation. Provide toothpicks so guests can easily spear the cubes and transfer them to their plates.

  1. 1

    Position the block of cheese on its side on a wooden cutting board.

  2. 2

    Insert the tip of a sharp knife into the middle of the side of the cheese. Press the blade down to cut a slice. Make ½-inch to 1-inch slices, depending on what size you want the cheese cubes to be, across the side of the cheese block.

  3. 3

    Hold the sliced cheese block together and set it on its bottom. Make ½-inch or 1-inch slices lengthwise across the cheese.

  4. 4

    Turn the cheese block a quarter turn on the cutting board. Make ½-inch or 1-inch slices crosswise so the cheese forms equal, bite-size cubes. Arrange the cheese cubes on a serving platter.

Tips and warnings

  • Cover the cheese cubes with cling film before serving to prevent them from drying out.
