Classic Charcuterie Board vs Breakfast Charcuterie Board
Charcuterie boards (pronounced “shar-KOO-tuh-ree”) are a trend that I have seen popping up everywhere! “Charcuterie” is a French term for displaying a variety of cured meats, mostly pork. Originally they included things like salami, prosciutto, and sausages. Modern charcuterie boards can have any variety of meats, cheeses, fruits, veggies, olives, nuts, and also spreads and sauces. Typically the boards are arranged in an aesthetically pleasing and abundant fashion. If you want to learn more about how to make a traditional charcuterie board, then check out our step-by-step guide to making the perfect charcuterie board. This breakfast spread utilizes the idea of an abundant, aesthetic array of food items, but fills it with something completely different – a bunch of your favorite breakfast foods.
Frequently Asked Questions about Breakfast Charcuterie Boards
Set up a breakfast charcuterie board by adding large items like waffles and small bowls first and then filling in with smaller items. For best results, use items with contrasting colors, textures, and tastes.
It depends on how many waffles you use per person. For a snack you could serve one half or one waffle per person, for a meal bump it up to 2 waffles and also don’t forget to include protein like bacon or sausage.
Keep waffles warm in the oven until ready to serve. Place a wire rack on top of a baking sheet and place in the oven on warm. Add waffles in a single layer to the wire rack. Leave in oven until ready to serve.
