HOW TO BUILD A BREAKFAST BOARD
an easy step-by-step guide to the ultimate breakfast grazing board
Breakfast grazing boards are a quick and impressive way to serve brunch to guests! They're:
- Easy to make
- Perfect for a variety of recipes
- A huge crowd-pleaser
- Great for holidays & parties
The size of your board will depend on how many people you're serving. Choose a large cutting board for a crowd or a smaller cheese platter for an intimate group of friends.
STEP 1: CHOOSE YOUR BOARD
Now, pick the main feature of your board. Pancakes and waffles are my go-to, but any main dish will work for this breakfast board!
STEP 2: PICK YOUR MAIN RECIPE
tips and tricks
Choose something that can be served at room temperature. That way, you don't have to worry about keeping the food hot and your guests can eat whenever.
Fruit and nuts are great for a sweet option. To make it a charcuterie board, add cheese and cold cuts! You can also add savory options like avocado and bacon.
STEP 3: ADD A FEW GARNISHES
Now, it's time to put everything together! Start by adding your main dish in a 'wavy' pattern. Then, fill in the gaps with fruit, syrup, & other garnishes.
STEP 4: ASSEMBLE & SERVE
