A charcuterie breakfast board is perfect when you have several people who want to eat a healthy breakfast, but not all at the same time.

Instructions

  • If desired some preparation can be done the night before such as boiling and peeling eggs, slicing cheese, washing fruit, etc.
  • Line a board with parchment paper.
  • Start by creating a shape with 2-3 food items. Suggestions are an "S" shape on a round board or an "X" shape on a square or rectangular board.
  • Fill in large empty spaces with 2-3 different food items, adding variety. For instance, if you created the shape with fruit you can now add meats and cheeses.
  • Fill in smaller empty spaces with medium to small items, such as cups of yogurt, small breads, etc.
  • Now you should be left with only very small empty spaces. Use these as places to add berries, nuts, etc. Sprigs of fresh herbs can be added as well.
  • Include any needed utensils such as small spoons in the yogurt cups, but keep in mind that largely your board should be finger foods.

Notes

  • This board can be made small for just 2-3 people, or larger for up to 12-15.
  • Vary the food elements according to the tastes of guests and what is fresh and at its best at the moment.
