The Trader Joe's Cheese Your Charcuterie Board Needs
By Erin Metz
While searching for the star of your next charcuterie board at Trader Joe's, be sure to pick up a package of Trader Joe's Cheddar Cheese with Caramelized Onions.
This underrated cheese is a sneaky gem hidden behind the brie bites and honey goat cheese. Before you turn your nose up at the idea of onions mixed into your cheese, hear us out.
At $9.99 per pound, it may seem like a bit of a splurge, but this sweet, savory, and acidic cheese is perfect for crafting a well-balanced charcuterie board for your gathering.
According to TJ's website, this cheese is derived from English cow's milk and is a "beautiful, full-bodied farmhouse Cheddar... [blended with] caramelized onion marmalade."
The sweet onion flavor is subtle and pairs beautifully with fruit, nuts, and jellies, while the white cheddar's sharper flavors are perfect with veggies, crackers, or cured meat.
