A delicious breakfast charcuterie board with bacon, sausage, waffles, pancakes, and fresh fruit. It’s a fun way to serve breakfast or brunch!
Breakfast food is always an excellent choice for entertaining guests or an easy meal. Who doesn’t love breakfast?! So, for your next brunch or dinner party, try making a breakfast charcuterie board.
A breakfast board is just like serving a meal family style. Except it’s all arranged beautifully on a single board. That means less cleanup. And you get to wow your guests, or family, with your food styling.

- Mini pancakes
- Sausage Links
- Apple Fritter
- Granola cereal
How to Assemble a Breakfast Charcuterie Board
Use a large rectangular cutting board to create this breakfast charcuterie board. Always start with any bowls or containers. It’s easier to arrange food around the bowls. My bowls hold yogurt and granola cereal. Bowls of jam, Nutella, or butter are also great ideas for a breakfast board.
After the bowls are on the board, arrange the food around them. It’s easiest to start with larger food first, then move to the smallest. For this breakfast board, I started with waffles.
Waffles and Pancakes
Start in the upper left corner of the board. Arrange the waffles in a curve moving down toward the lower left corner. The curve stops on the right side of the bowl of granola cereal. Overlap the waffles to give them more height and dimension. I also placed a few pieces of fruit on each waffle to break up the tan color.
Then, stack mini pancakes in the lower left corner and upper right corner of the board. The pancakes should curve around the small bowls. Stack the pancakes high so they are visible around the bowls. I used Eggo Minis pancakes for this breakfast board. The pancakes come in a box of 40. They only need to cook for 6 minutes in the oven. That makes them perfect for a quick breakfast for a lot of people.
Sausage and Bacon
On the left side of the board is a pile of bacon. It fits the curve perfectly. Pile the bacon high, so it matches the heights of the waffles and pancakes.
Stack the sausage links on the right side of the board. I also stacked a few sausage links at the top of the board. They fill in the bit of space left between the pancakes and waffles.
A lot of breakfast foods are various shades of beige. So colorful fruit is important for a breakfast charcuterie board! It adds visual interest. And it just makes the board prettier. I used strawberries and blackberries for my board. But you can use any fruits that your family prefers.
Pour the berries, or fruit, into the remaining spaces on the board. Between the bacon and waffles in the center. And between the yogurt and sausage on the right side. I also placed a few berries in the yogurt for good measure.
The final piece on this breakfast charcuterie board is a giant apple fritter. The fritter is just a family favorite from a local donut shop. We tend to have them on the weekend, so it was the perfect finishing touch for a weekend breakfast board.
Alternative Food for a Breakfast Charcuterie Board
- Hardboiled eggs
What Size Board Did You Use?
My rectangular board is 18″ x 14″. I purchased the board at HomeGoods. It’s a great place to find affordable cheese boards! I’ve provided links to similar boards, as well as a few small dishes.
