I’ve always been such a sucker for the weekend – I sleep a little longer and enjoy my cup of coffee on my couch rather than in the car. Another huge perk… you have time to prepare hotel style breakfasts.
Fantastic charcuterie boards have become a mainstay on social media, as images of fancy cheese and meat roses are just around every corner. What if you could channel this energy into an exciting update for breakfast?

Bagels and smoked salmon, delicious sausages, and pickles. A collection of tastes and flavours you love the most to make your breakfast a small feast.
These breakfast charcuterie board ideas will help you create a real piece of are by selecting the food your family loves the most and surprise them with a fancy serving of breakfast.
Breakfast Board Tips:
Pick a theme to help you style the board and choose the main items. Maybe you prefer a healthier/fresher/fruitier vibe. Perhaps sweet breakfasts of pure indulgence are your sweet spot. Maybe you’re a savoury girl and would kill for a full English fry up. Pick one and play to the strengths
Choose a few stars of the show: Filling these boards is about abundance but not needlessly adding too much of one thing. Choose a few stars that will be the main event, place them in key spots on the board and then use smaller items to fill the gaps.
Find fun fillers: Fill the gaps in between with fun, small items that make sense. On a healthy board that could be nuts, seeds or popcorn. On a sweet board it could be scattered berries or little marshmallows
Create various heights: Visual excitement comes from layers, so don’t be afraid to use small bowls and folded baking paper to create layers and height on the board. You could also stack items like grapes into a small mountain for visual effect.
Have fun: Now that you have some suggestions, remember they’re only suggestions… put on what you like and serve what you or your family likes and dish it up with love.
