Tips and tricks for how to make an easy, kid-friendly brunch board.
Spring is here and what better way to celebrate than with family and food. That’s why we created an epic brunch charcuterie board to bring the two together. It’s simple to create, and easily customized based on your family’s preferences.
Don’t like waffles? Swap them for pancakes. Substitute bacon for plant-based sausage. Switch maple syrup for whipped cream…the options are endless!
Better yet, there’s not a ton of cooking involved, and you can easily use pre-made brunch items if you so choose, like cooked hard boiled eggs or freezer waffles. Whether you create your Spring Brunch Board for a fancy springtime tea party, or a fun Sunday brunch at home, it comes together quickly, and is sure to impress.
So hop on board (pun totally intended!) the charcuterie board trend, and treat your family to a special brunch to celebrate Spring.
PIN for when you want to create your own brunch board:
TIPS FOR CREATING A BRUNCH BOARD
- Plan your board around a few main carbs, think waffles, pancakes, bagels, French toast, granola or muffins. You can then ensure that your sides and toppings relate to the “main course”.
- Use your largest cutting board or serving platter as your base, then place your largest items on first (usually your selected carbs), plus any dishes containing toppings, sauces or spreads.
- Then fill in the holes with your remaining items, working from largest to smallest. Try and spread out textures and colors evenly across the board for a harmonious look.
- Don’t forget serving tools, including smaller butter knives and spoons for spreads.
