Charcuterie Board For Breakfast

I love the creativity that comes from assembling charcuterie boards! The other cheese boards I’ve shared have been some of my favorite posts over the past few years: Thanksgiving board, Christmas board, and even a Kids charcuterie board. I also love breakfast buffets. Consider this a breakfast charcuterie board a mash up of the two. 

This breakfast board is perfect for hosting breakfast or brunch parties or when you just want to make the morning meal a little bit extra for your family. Mix up the ingredients with their favorites. Best of all, you don’t have to make everything from scratch. Feel free to use frozen ingredients to save you lots of time. If you do a little bit of the cooking in advance, this board is so quick and easy to assemble at breakfast time. But of course, homemade pancakes and waffles for a hosted brunch would be a nice touch. 

I recommend an assortment of protein-rich foods (like eggs, breakfast sausages, mini quiches, or Greek yogurt) plus all the yummy baked goods (waffles, pancakes, croissants), and of course tons of fresh fruit. You can also add some meats and cheeses, nuts, or other charcuterie board favorites that are seen on breakfast buffets (avocado and smoked salmon come to mind!). 

What You Will Need For Your Breakfast Charcuterie Board


  • Whole milk plain yogurt (365 brand) + mashed raspberries + chia seeds
  • Sweet Belgian Waffles (365 brand, frozen)
  • Mini Pancakes (Earth’s Best, frozen)
  • Turkey Sausage Patties (Applegate Naturals, frozen)
  • Fruit: mixed berries, cara cara oranges, kiwi
  • Peanut butter (Costco Kirkland brand)
  • Hard-boiled eggs + everything bagel seasoning
  • Maple syrup
  • Granola (Purely Elizabeth – Original)
  • Frozen mini quiche (Whole Foods brand, frozen)

As I mentioned above, starting with some frozen favorites will save you lots of time. These four came from the frozen section of Whole Foods. Feel free to swap in sausage links for patties, crepes, donuts, mini muffins, baked eggs, cottage cheese, baked oatmeal, chia pudding, bagels with cream cheese, smoked salmon – there are endless ideas! These Cinnamon Raisin Baked Oatmeal Muffins would be great.

How To Assemble A Charcuterie Board For Breakfast

Just like building a cheese and meat board, you want to start with the anchor items and fill in with smaller pieces.

Step 1: Prep dishes 

Prepare a clean cutting board and gather smaller bowls for liquidy toppings. Get some small spoons or spreaders for anything that needs cutting. Have separate plates for guests to use, and a pair of tongs for serving. 

Step 2: Anchor the board with bowls

Anchor the board with small bowls of peanut butter, maple syrup and granola. Add the empty yogurt bowl, which you’ll fill with yogurt last. Optional: softened butter and whipped cream!!

Step 3: Arrange room temp items

Spread cold fruit or any other room temp items around the board. Group like with like and save a few fruits for last. You’ll want to keep the wettest fruits (like oranges/grapefruit) away from the baked goods.

Step 4: Warm baked ingredients

Cook or toast any of the frozen ingredients. You’ll want to do this step last so the baked goods are as warm as possible, but set the expectation that this board is served room temp and guests can warm their plate if needed. 

Step 5: Fill in any gaps

After adding your warmed pieces around the board, fill in any gaps with extra fruit or smaller ingredients, like some spiced nuts! 

Step 6: Add the yogurt

If you’re serving anything that should be chilled, like yogurt or cottage cheese, add that last! Pour right into the bowl you reserved and top with garnishes. 

Breakfast Charcuterie Board Ideas

Cut Fruit in Pretty Shapes

Here’s how to make kiwi flowers. Fan your strawberries. You can use cookie cutters on watermelon or cantaloupe to make shapes. Fruit skewers would be a fun addition too!

Match the season

In the summer, bright berries will be the star. Or watermelon! You might stick to a yogurt, fruit, and granola theme in the summer, or make a pitcher of green smoothie and set all the toppings on the board. Chia pudding would be a fun addition to a summery board! In the winter, citrus is the star, along with a warm quiche or croissants. Maybe even some donuts with red and green sprinkles for Christmas morning! 

Consider Dietary Preferences

If you’ll have any vegans, vegetarians, or gluten-free guests in attendance, keep them in mind. Pay close attention that the meat doesn’t overlap with the fruit. You can plan a a dairy-free yogurt choice or make the whole board gluten-free if needed. 

Sweet Board vs. Savory Board

Another option is to have two dueling boards: sweet and savory! Which breakfast type rules?! Guests could even vote! One board has quiche, eggs (scrambled eggs might be hard to do cold, but fried eggs, omelets, or hard-boiled work!), breakfast meats, even little salads. The sweet board has waffles, crepes, donuts, muffins. Mmmm!!!

Serve with brunch drinks!

For a brunch charcuterie board, don’t forget the mimosas!! Plus hot coffee, tea, hot chocolate for the kids, or bloody marys for the bold. 

What will you put on your breakfast board!?
