Forming a Santa Claus face with food isn't exactly a new original idea. I've seen them made with veggies, fruit, and let's not forget my own low carb Santa pancake! So I decided to adapt my popular turkey-shaped Thanksgiving platter, which uses sliced meat and cheese. It looked so cheery, if I do say so myself!

How to Make a Santa Snack Platter

Start by placing a low carb tortilla on a large serving platter. If you don't want to use a tortilla for the face, you could use some sliced orange cheese like cheddar, but I didn't really want him to have an orange face! Cut some sliced cheese into squares – I used a mixture of Swiss and mozzarella – this will form the beard.

Next, add some pepperoni in layers to form a hat.

Create the facial features by adding two sliced black olives for eyes, and salami for cheeks. Cut out a nose and mouth shape from more salami, then add triangles of cheese for eyebrows and moustache.

Finish with two rows of mozzarella pearls for the hat trim and a “pom pom” at the end of his hat.

And it's done! It really doesn't take very long to put together and you can add as many layers of meat and cheese as you would like.
