Apparently, butter boards are a new trend. I feel like I’ve heard the term somewhere recently, but didn’t give it a second thought.
Then, I see today that Google shows searches for “butter boards” are way up!

So I had to do a little bit of my own research… because I’m curious like that. And the first place I checked? TikTok (Sorry, Google). I will tell you, there was no shortage of videos when I typed “butter board” into the search!
Butter Boards – A Definition
I did go to Google though to see the “definition” of butter board. The first article I came across was from USA Today. They say, “The latest craze that’s snaking its way through TikTok and Instagram is all about aesthetically pleasing, shareable spreads.” They also found that the #ButterBoard on TikTok spiked to nearly 84 million views as of Monday!
From what I’ve gathered, you use softened butter and spread it on the board. Then you add in toasted bread. Of course, you can get really fancy with it if you like and have a flavored butter, and also add in some cheese, nuts, fruit, meat, etc. Basically, a charcuterie board, right? Just with butter?
