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. Serve up some warm homemade pancake syrup in a small pitcher to go alongside your breakfast foods.

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.
