Charcuterie boards have gained popularity in the past few years. Picturesque and pleasing, these boards boast an array of cured meats, cheeses, olives, and other fruits and veggies. These meaty boards are beautiful and filling, but what if I told you there was another kind of charcuterie board waiting to be devoured? Please welcome, the brunch charcuterie board.
How To Make A Brunch Charcuterie Board
A brunch charcuterie board is everything you love about a regular charcuterie board, except, it’s totally acceptable to add yummy breakfast foods like eggs, pancakes, muffins and granola.
There can be a lot of overlap between regular charcuterie boards and brunch charcuterie boards, however, there is so much more freedom with this noon delight.
First, decide what kind of board you will create. Will it be sweet or savory? Will you include bacon? What about mini pancakes? Once you’ve decided and collected your food items, find an Insta-worthy wooden board. Arrange your fruits, waffle bites, or other brunch items into a beautiful array. You can add jams, jellies, sauces or syrups into small bowls and place them in between the foods, as well. A pro tip is to break up colors to add texture and interest.
