How to Build an Epic Breakfast Charcuterie Board
Updated: Jun 13, 2020
Oh my, it's maple-y, fruit-y and chocolate-y... it's my epic breakfast charcuterie board complete with all of the fix-ins! I am drooling even writing this! I don't know about you, but weekend brunching is one of my FAVORITE things.
If you ever have the hardest time deciding what to order when you are out for brunch like me, this board that you can easily put together at home is for you! My epic breakfast charcuterie board lets you taste a little bit of everything and build your own plate as you go.
This board includes all of the essentials:
Butterfly Protein Pancakes (main brunch item)
Sunny Side Up Eggs (secondary main brunch item)
Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
Almond Milk Whipped Cream
The great thing about these charcuterie boards is that they are completely customizable. You can tailor them to your likes and dislikes, pile it up as much or as little as you want or just use up left over items that you have in your fridge.
Here I will teach you how to create this beauty with some tips and tricks and in addition, include some of the kitchen items I used.
To start, I recommend picking your main brunch item. In my case, they were the butterfly protein pancakes. You can do waffles, breakfast sandwiches, donuts or muffins instead. Honestly, the options are endless! For my butterfly protein pancakes I used: Kodiak Pancake and Waffle Mix which contains 14 grams of protein per serving. To create the butterfly shape I purchased a butterfly pancake mold. These pancake molds are so fun and come in a variety of options.
PRETTY PLATE PRESENTATION INSTRUCTIONS:
Start with your main brunch item. In my case it was the butterfly protein pancakes. Place them in the top corner of your board. Arrange them in a way to where you can build other things around and in front of them.
Take your secondary main brunch item and place it in the opposite corner. In my case, it was the sunny side up eggs. Do the same thing as you did for the main brunch item and arrange them in a way to where you can build other thins around and in front of them.
Naturally, bacon and eggs go together like peanut butter and jelly. So, I placed the bacon length wise next to the eggs.
Add your items that will be served in vessels or small bowls (peanut butter, maple syrup and whipped cream) and place them on the board. I placed the maple syrup and peanut butter next to the pancakes since those will be served together and the whipped cream as far away as I could from those other two items to separate them. ** NOTE: It is okay to place the peanut butter and syrup in their vessels early, however you might want to wait to fill the whipped cream due to it wilting right away and place that item in its vessel last. ** I also like to use a different vessels and not use the same ones to create a visual variety.
With the small spaces left on the board, fill those in with your remaining additions: fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, etc. I like to cover every gap showing to form a board that looks full, colorful and abundant.
