What is a Charcuterie Brunch Board?

A brunch charcuterie is just what it sounds like…a charcuterie board made with brunch items in addition to cheeses and meats.

It’s very similar to my cheese boards (Trader Joe’s cheese board and Costco cheese board), but we’ve swapped out some of the items for brunch classics, like eggs and mini cinnamon rolls.

What You’ll Love About Breakfast Charcuterie Boards

  • It’s SO FUN!
  • Easy meal
  • Just 10 minutes prep
  • Perfect for a crowd
  • Great way to serve a casual, grazing board

Brunch Charcuterie Ingredients

As with any cheeseboard or breakfast graze board, you’ll want a variety of items. Here are the components:

  • Breads – Think breakfast foods here with mini chocolate chip muffins, mini donuts, or mini croissants, but also think charcuterie with a classic baguette.
  • Cheeses – Use a combination of aged, soft, traditional, and something fun! I used a blueberry goat cheese for a sweet cheese twist in addition to a brie and aged gouda (two of my cheese board staples).
  • Produce – Add some fresh fruit and veggies to your board for color and nutrition. Use whatever is fresh and in-season, berries like blueberry, strawberries, raspberries, and black berries always look great and are easy-to-eat. Cut oranges into segments and cut small clusters of grapes to make them easy-to-grab. Slice kiwi and cut melons (cantaloupe or watermelon) into chunks. Cucumbers, avocado, grape tomatoes, and baby carrots are veggies that work well.
  • Extras – Not only are items like smoked salmon, prosciutto, or deli ham great additions, but also think of breakfast classics like hard boiled eggs, sausage links, jam or preserves, and honey.

How to Make Charcuterie Breakfast Board

Here’s how to make a breakfast brunch charcuterie board in a few easy steps:

  • Place cheeses and anything in dishes or small bowls on board or tray first. Space out evenly.
  • Add meat or smoked salmon near cheeses.
  • Add bread and crackers next to cheeses.
  • Finish with fresh produce and any other items. If you have open space that needs filling, fill with nuts like almonds, walnuts, or cashews.

TIP: Think about how you’ll want to eat the items and group them near each other (ie. cheese and crackers).

Breakfast Board Ideas

You can really go in so many different directions for a breakfast charcuterie.

I wanted this to be a combination of charcuterie (meats and cheese) AND breakfast items (sweets and hard boiled eggs) so that’s what I did! You can also set a particular theme – a pancake or waffles board (don’t forget the butter and maple syrup), granola and yogurt spread, and of course, a salmon lox and bagel spread.

Storage Instructions

While some of the items can be prepped ahead, this breakfast platter should be assembled right before eating and serving.

Some cheeses (like brie or aged gouda – two of my staples) are best left out at room temperature before serving.
