What is a breakfast charcuterie board?
Charcuterie boards, also known as snack boards, are all the rage nowadays. That’s because they’re so easy to make while also being instagram-worthy! They’re essentially boards filled with a variety of different ingredients like meats, cheese, and dippers. A breakfast charcuterie board follows the same concept by combining a variety of breakfast faves like pancakes, sausage, eggs, and fruit.
What goes on a Breakfast Charcuterie Board?
Like all of my recipes, this beautiful brunch charcuterie board is completely customizable–mix and match from any of the following elements.
Pancakes are the star of the show for this board. Feel free to make your own homemade cakes or use a mix. I personally love whipping together these gluten-free oat flour pancakes! If you’re more of a waffle fan, you can sub those too.
Breakfast sausage is a great way to add in some protein and round out the board with a savory food. As a healthier choice, opt for grass-fed sausages, like these ones from Teton Waters Ranch. I love this brand because they are 100% grass-fed and finished, certified humane, and only contain a handful of ingredients.
If you don’t eat meat, feel free to swap for a plant based breakfast patty.
Eggs are a breakfast staple. Feel free to cook your preferred method and then add to your board. It’s typically easiest to scramble or hard boil them. However, you could also try for sunny side up and serve it in a tiny skillet over your board.
If you’re vegan, try scrambling up these vegan eggs from JUST Egg.
4. Fruit & Jams
When it comes to fruit, add over any of your favorites! Popular options include berries, bananas, and orange slices but anything goes here!
I also recommend having some jams to lather over the pancakes. For a healthier jam, try making your own homemade chia seed jam.
5. Toppings & Extras
Don’t leave those pancakes plain. Be sure to have plenty of topping choices on your board. Here are some great options you could include:
- Nut or seed butters
- Chocolate chips
- Maple syrup
- Toasted coconut flakes
- Sliced almonds
- Whip cream
- Homemade granola
What should I put my breakfast spread on?
It’s usually best to break out your largest wooden board to build your bread on. If you don’t have a wood board, you could also use a serving tray, cutting board, or lay parchment paper down on a kitchen island and build it on top.
Start by adding pancakes to the center then layer all other ingredients around it. Have fun with it and feel free to look up images for inspiration!
