What is a breakfast charcuterie board?
Charcuterie boards, also known as grazing or snack board are very popular. They’re so easy to make for a party, special event, or even to serve for dinner. Basically, they are boards filled with a variety of different ingredients like meats, cheese, fruits, and dippers. A breakfast charcuterie board is a great way to mix and match your favorite breakfast items like waffles, cinnamon rolls, bacon, sausage, eggs, fruit, toppings of your choice, and so much more. Be sure to include those pops of color in spaces to break up foods of the same color.
Breakfast and Brunch Charcuterie Boards are popular year-round. This simple charcuterie board can be made easily with your favorite breakfast or brunch foods or you can create a very elaborate one for a large gathering like a bridal or baby shower.
Easy Breakfast Charcuterie Board
You don’t have to make everything from scratch to make an amazing breakfast charcuterie board. It’s easy to store-bought items like frozen mini waffles or mini pancakes. Cooking the bacon and sausage is recommended over the ready-to-serve varieties but in a pinch, go for it.
Check the bakery for mini baked goods, like cinnamon rolls or mini danishes. Even the freezer department can be your friend when it comes to frozen baked goods.
Fresh fruits are great space fillers for charcuterie boards and using small containers for some gives the boards a bit more depth with the different elements.
Choosing the board to use is easy too. You don’t need a fancy expensive one. Using a large platter or wooden board are great options, even a baking sheet! I used a piece of parchment paper to cover my board to help reduce staining. The board I used here is about 18×12 inches. The great thing about charcuterie boards is that you can customize them to the size and shape of your board, or make multiple boards, even!
Can you make a breakfast charcuterie board ahead of time?
It’s best to serve hot foods like waffles and meats when they are warm so when you are preparing the boards, make those foods that need to stay warm last.
The hard-boiled eggs can be made ahead of time and refrigerated. You can prep the jams and syrups by putting them in small containers, wash and prepare the fresh fruit, and gather the baked goods all ahead of time.

How to make this Easy Breakfast Charcuterie Board
Cook the bacon, sausage, and waffles. I used frozen blueberry waffles toasted for this recipe.
To help reduce staining on your board, you may choose to line it with parchment paper or wax paper. Add your blackberries, grapes, and jam to small bowls or ramekins. Pour syrup into a small container and arrange them on the board, spacing them apart for visual appeal, and easier arrangement of the rest of the ingredients.
Place cut waffles quarters and sausage links between the grapes and syrup.
Add egg halves around the grape container.
Next, add the mini cinnamon rolls and bacon to the charcuterie board around the blackberry and grape containers.
Fill in any empty spaces with the fresh strawberries and serve your easy charcuterie board.
