We often enjoy having mini breakfast buffets so when I served this easy Brunch Charcuterie Board to the family they devoured it in minutes. Luckily, I had extras of most everything to fill it up again.

Creating grazing boards like this one and this easy breakfast charcuterie board makes life easy for me. I know what everyone’s favorites are to include on the platters. Charcuterie boards are great for more than a weekend brunch. They’re perfect for Easter Brunch, Mother’s Day, or any holiday or event.

What is a Charcuterie Board

Charcuterie boards, also known as grazing or snack boards 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, dried and fresh fruit, and dippers.

Easy Brunch Charcuterie Board

This Brunch Charcuterie Board makes enough for 4 people but is easily adapted for more by doubling or tripling the breakfast foods and using a larger tray or a few smaller ones.

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 an oval tray that is 20″ by 14″. 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!

The advantage of putting together these boards is that you can customize the items you use. If you’re not a fan of a particular fruit or meat, use your favorite breakfast foods. Same goes for the meats, cheeses, and other foods. I chose to use mini bagels in this one, we could make breakfast sandwiches with eggs, meats, and cheese. Or simply spread the cream cheese or jelly over the bagels. We plan to add these Bacon and Cheese Phyllo Cups and a mini muffin version of these raspberry coconut muffins the next time I serve this brunch charcuterie board. So good! Your options really are endless.
