What Is a Breakfast Charcuterie Board?  

A breakfast charcuterie board or breakfast board is just what it sounds like! Using inspiration from traditional charcuterie boards, it features a variety of ingredients arranged on a platter. However, unlike your standard charcuterie board, a breakfast board includes only breakfast and brunch items, which makes it even better in our opinion!

How to Put Together a Breakfast Charcuterie Board

Not only are they impressive, but breakfast boards are also super fun to make! There really aren’t any rules. However, we do have some general guidelines that will make the process easy. 

  1. Add the Largest Items. Start by placing the largest foods like pancakes or waffles on a large wooden board or serving platter. Then, add any bowls you plan to include. 
  2. Arrange Smaller Items. Next, arrange the smaller foods around the large items. 
  3. Decorate. Fill in any gaps or sparse areas with extra fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, or small items that can easily be grazed on. 

Tips for the Best Results 

Still not confident or looking for ways to build an even better breakfast charcuterie board? We’ve got you covered with the tips and tricks below! 

  • Pick a Theme. For this breakfast board, we included a little bit of everything. However, you can also make it a bit more streamlined by choosing a theme! Think savory, sweet, pancakes, holidays, and more. 
  • Use Shapes. Use cookie cutters to create fun shapes out of pancakes, waffles, and fruit, adding texture and a unique display. 
  • Stick to Seasons. A fun way to make sure your breakfast charcuterie board experience is never the same is to stick to using seasonal foods, switching up what you include each time you make it. 
  • Group Foods and Colors. For the best results, try to group foods together in small clusters, and sprinkle color throughout the board for visual appeal. 
  • Make It Big or Small. If you’re serving a large crowd, go crazy with multiple boards each with its own theme. Or, for a small gathering, make mini boards instead. 

Make Ahead and Storage Options

For the best results, we recommend preparing your breakfast charcuterie board just before serving. However, if you want to prepare ahead of time, you can wrap it with saran wrap, and store it in the fridge for 1-2 days. 

Or, we recommend preparing the ingredients separately and storing each group of items in a separate airtight container in the fridge or at room temperature for 1-2 days. Then, just assemble your breakfast board right before you’re ready to serve!
