Move over charcuterie, the butter board is having its moment. This viral trend is spreading across the globe and folks are giddily responding with refrains of, “Pass the bread!”. This appetizer is refreshingly simple to create – maybe the point is the lack of fussiness. No one is ever unhappy with bread and butter presented on the table before a meal. It’s the communal pull of bringing everyone together to break bread that’s the real draw. And the possibilities for butter boards are as boundless as your imagination (and your pantry.)

This recipe calls for ghee – the Indian clarified form of butter with a slightly roasted, nutty flavor – to be feathered across a charcuterie board or a platter, and garnished with a few simple, tasty toppings. The already converted declare that ghee tastes cleaner, richer and more decadent than butter – and more buttery than butter itself. The ghee used here is infused with fresh garlic, lending a bit of healthy elegance to the straightforwardness of a butter board, and maybe a bit of mystery. Sprinkle it with pine nuts and fresh thyme, serve it with good bread and savor.
