Breakfast Charcuterie Board Recipes - theskinnyfoodco

If you're looking for a fun and creative way to spruce up your next breakfast, consider making a delicious charcuterie board! A breakfast charcuterie board is a delicious combination of savoury, sweet, and salty foods arranged on a platter or plate. This type of board is perfect for any special occasion or just as a unique way to start your day. With the right ingredients, you can create a tasty and eye-catching breakfast charcuterie board, that's both delicious and colourful.

When selecting items for a typical charcuterie board, it's important to consider the flavours of the different foods. Choose a combination of savoury items such as cured meats, cheeses, nuts, olives, and pickles. Then add some sweetness with jams or honeycomb. Finally, incorporate some salty items such as crackers or crostini. You can also add some fresh fruits and vegetables to the board for a refreshing touch.

When we consider what breakfast elements can be incorporated into a Charcturerie board we'll need to consider the most flavourful breakfast elements. You can choose to create a savoury breakfast charcuterie board which includes mini omelettes, meats such as sausages & bacon and toast. 

And then pair this with the sweeter breakfast options such as pancakes with maple syrup and fresh fruit, all served on an aesthetically pleasing wooden board and presented to your breakfast guests or special someone. A breakfast charcuterie board is a great way to start the day with something unique and special. With this guide, you can create your own beautiful and delicious board in no time. So get creative and have fun!


Prepping Your Charcuterie Board


Before you begin assembling the ultimate breakfast grazing boards, you may want a clear idea of all the elements you'll need to consider to make it spotless, from napkins & ramekins to condiments, sauces and drinks. Here's a quick look at the little details that will help take your brunch board from basic to an outstanding breakfast platter.


To assemble your breakfast charcuterie board, you'll need breakfast boards, wooden boards or your favourite platters.

You can also choose to include some napkins, layered and folded underneath your breakfast foods., and arrange them in an attractive way, creating contrast between colours and shapes. You can use small bowls or ramekins to hold some of the breakfast/brunch items.


No breakfast/brunch spread would be complete without the accompanying condiments. At The Skinny Food Co, we provide a wide variety of sauces & syrups which can be easily paired with your favourite breakfast board ideas. 

Why not add one of our on-the-go syrups to your coffees or hot chocolates? 

And don't forget our lower sugar sauces such as Ketchup, Brown Sauce & Hollandaise can be paired perfectly with your savoury breakfast recipes. 

Whilst our sweeter 425ml syrups such as honey, maple syrup and chocolate can be added to your oats, porridge and bakes for the extra sweet goodness without the added sugars. 

 This will allow your guests to customize their own experience and truly enjoy their meal.



Sweet Charcuterie Boards

If you're looking for a charcuterie board that combines your favourite sweet breakfast items from fruits to croissants, jams and toasts then why not consider the following items:

Fruits such as strawberries, blueberries and raspberries make a tasty addition to any charcuterie board. You can also include other fruits like melon, pineapple, red or green grapes and kiwi fruit. Toast, croissants and brioche are great for creating the perfect base for your sweet breakfast items. Toppings like jams, honeycomb, Greek yogurt and nut butter bring a delicious sweetness to the board.

You can also choose to include some breakfast-style desserts such as American Fluffy Pancakes, mini muffins or French toast sticks, which are slightly on the sweeter side, but definitely still worthy of its breakfast- brunch title. 

Finally, don’t forget about the toppings – sprinkle your board with some chia seeds and granola for a crunchy texture that makes it even more enjoyable to eat.
