The list of food trends that TikTok has given us is pretty much endless, and we’re always in the mood for more. After putting a twist on charcuterie boards time and time again, TikTok users have given us another delicious take on this beloved trend—butter boards.
Butter boards became a viral sensation thanks to Justine Doiron, who shared a video that shows her putting one together on her page @justine_snacks. Her followers quickly took notice, and her video received 8.5 million views, introducing us to TikTok’s latest viral food obsession.

Despite putting butter boards on the map, Doiron isn’t their original creator. Cookbook author and chef Joshua McFadden is actually the mastermind behind this trend, and he initially introduced them in his book Six Seasons: A New Way With Vegetables and often served them at farmhouse dinner parties.
As it usually goes with TikTok food trends, you don’t have to be a pro in the kitchen to give this viral craze a shot. All you need is some softened butter, toasted bread, a wooden board, and toppings of your choice. Herbs, leafy greens, edible flowers, tomatoes, garlic, and figs are some of the most popular options on TikTok right now, but you can get as creative as you like with your own butter board.
