This simple and easy Breakfast Charcuterie Board Recipe has many great ideas for your breakfast and brunch charcuterie needs. With muffins, bacon, sausages, mini pancakes, fruit and more you can't go wrong! It's the perfect option for keeping it simple and easy while entertaining.
Breakfast and Brunch Charcuterie Boards are popular year round. They are great for baby showers, or brunch with friends or feeding visitors.
This was inspired by our Dessert Charcuterie Board and would go great served with our Veggie Quiche and Coffee Cake. Check out our Halloween Board and Thanksgiving Board.
Add a tasty Egg Puff to this board for added vegetarian protein.
- fresh fruit
- mini muffins
- french toast sticks
See recipe card for quantities.
1. Make mini muffins, (I made blueberry muffins and apple muffins) mini pancakes (try our protein pancakes) and anything else that may take awhile to prepare.
2. Cook your meats. I used bacon and chicken sausage for this one, but you can use any of your favorites.
3. To assemble your charcuterie board, start with some anchors. Anchors are anything like bowls of things or any large-ish decorative elements you are including. You can see in the next picture I changed my mind and switched some things around. After placing your anchors, start adding things around your anchors and the edges.
4. Begin filling in the empty spaces with your breakfast foods. Working around the edges and anchors then filling in allows you to fill the board completely. I like to fill in with fruit last, since it can turn brown and is best served chilled. I try to place things so that there are pops of color in various areas of the board.
Hint: Don't leave any gaps in your snack board! Filling in all the gaps and making it really full looking is what gives it that stunning quality.
- Vegetarian - instead of meats, use boiled eggs and protein pancakes for a vegetarian option
- All fruit charcuterie board- make a massive platter of fruit and ditch all the other items. Use pineapple, mango, peaches, plums, apples, melons and more!
- Spicy - add chili pepper flakes to the savory parts of your board and buy spicy sausages.
- Brunch Charcuterie Board- Breakfast and brunch are quite similar. To change this to brunch, switch the pancakes for cinnamon rolls and the granola and yogurt for mini croissants and nutella.
- Easter Breakfast- add in some breakfast casseroles, quiche cups, Italian Easter bread and some cinnamon rolls.
- Charcuterie Board
- any decorative elements desired
Store the cold ingredients in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 3 days.
Store the other ingredients in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
Relax and have fun while creating your board and let your creativity be your guide! Remember if you "mess up" you can always move things around.
Easy Breakfast Charcuterie Board

- sausages bacon, boiled eggs or other breakfast proteins
- mini muffins french toast sticks, mini pancakes, mini waffles, etc.
- Prepare your breads, make your mini muffins (I used apple muffins and blueberry muffins), pancakes, french toast sticks, etc.
- Prepare your meats by cooking any meats you are using such as sausage or bacon.
- Prepare fruit by washing and/or chopping.
- Assemble your breakfast board by starting with your anchors. Your anchors are any bowls or large decorative items you are using. Space them evenly.
- Start placing groups of elements around the edges and anchors. Remember nothing is permanent, and if you place it and it looks funny, just move it. Fill in all the gaps- this is what makes a charcuterie board so stunning is how full it is. Place elements of different colors and textures next to each other to give variety and make it more beautiful.
- Store cold items in the refrigerator in airtight containers for up to 3 days.
- Store other items at room temperature in airtight containers for up to 3 days.
Incorporate elements of breakfast meats, such as sausage and bacon, breakfast fruits, and mini muffins, pancakes, etc. Granola and yogurt are also great additions.

- Wash hands after touching raw meat
- Don't leave food sitting out at room temperature for extended periods
- Never leave cooking food unattended
- Use oils with high smoking point to avoid harmful compounds

Yum, breakfast charcuterie boards might be my new favorite. I used this for a lunch and loved all the great ideas on it! Thanks!
My family definitely loved this Breakfast Charcuterie Board. We had extended family visiting and everyone loved the variety and simplicity and thought it was really fun.
This was perfect for the a brunch I had over the weekend. It was a great way to display easy on the go breakfast foods in a super cute way. I will be referring to this again for my upcoming Easter Brunch.
Where did you get your cute charcuterie board?? I love it! My husband is inviting his employees over and I'm so excited to host them. They're hardworking carpet cleaners and deserve so much! ❤️
Hi Janae! I got that one at TJMaxx, and I have another I love from Home Goods. Best of luck 🙂
