Shake up your weekend with a tasty and fabulous brunch board. There’s no denying that board meals are the new trend and I can totally see why – they are super easy and quick to put together, and the end result elevates any breakfast, brunch or dinner experience. Last time, we got all sweet and put together our Valentine’s Inspired Dessert Board, but today, let’s talk about how to build your own breakfast charcuterie board.
This morning I woke up feeling for waffles, and so I used waffles and pancakes as the main dishes in my breakfast charcuterie board. I’m trying to eat healthier so I opted for Pamcakes’ Pancakes pancake and waffle mix – it’s high protein, low carbs and gluten-free. I wanted a variety on my board so I made both the pancakes and waffles in 3 different flavors – Confetti, Double Chocolate Chip and Pumpkin Spice.
Then, I filled up my board with a bunch of yummy fruits (to keep up with my healthy vibe of course) – bananas, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, grapes and orange slices. I also added some fun extra toppings: butter slices, rainbow sprinkles, chocolate chips and Nutella hazelnut spread. Finally, I added a few cinnamon sticks and fresh herbs – just to fill free space and be decorative.
I LOVED the end result of my pancake and waffle board so much!
Since there is such a wide variety of fun breakfast foods, definitely have fun with your board and make it suited to you and your guests. Remember, when thinking of what to include on your breakfast board, try to think of finger foods that aren’t too wet or messy, and can remain fresh at room temperature.
Here are some foods that can be included on your brunch charcuterie board:
- Waffles- Chocolate chip, blueberry, plain, etc.
- Pancakes- Chocolate chip, blueberry, plain, etc.
- Toast- Bread, bagels or croissants.
- Spreads- Hazelnut spread, peanut butter, cream cheese and jelly.
