Breakfast Charcuterie board/How to Make for Christmas Morning
Make this Christmas breakfast charcuterie board for your family and friends. The perfect way to start Christmas morning!
Today I am joining 11 blogger friends to bring you all kinds of charcuterie ideas, from Breakfast to dessert. There is so much you can do with a charcuterie board. You can even create a grazing table for the family to enjoy during the holidays.
If you are hopping over from my friend Nicole’s blog post, Welcome. I am sure you are drooling after reading her post about goat cheese. I know I am. Nicole @ourtinynest spread that cheese on the board and made it look delicious with a little drizzle of honey and some fresh berries.
If you are unfamiliar with Charcuterie, it started as assembling a wide array of cured meats paired with cheeses, assorted bread, crackers, fruits, and vegetables on a board. Recently, there has been a rise in the popularity of charcuterie boards, and people are getting very creative. (as you will soon see if you haven’t already)
You can use any board or tray to put your breakfast charcuterie on. I happen to love these big cutting boards of all sizes and shapes. And there are so many options to create your charcuterie board. Let’s take a look at a few. You can use a wooden board, a marble board, a ceramic tray, or even a wood slice. The options are endless.

Themed Charcuterie Boards
There are so many themes you can create with the concept of Charcuterie. Here are just a few for us to think about.
- Seasonal Boards ( Summer, Winter, Spring, and Fall)
- Meal boards, such as a breakfast charcuterie board or lunch
- Charcuterie boards for kids
- Holiday Boards
- Butter boards ( the latest craze)
- Specific themed boards like an olive board, breadboard, candy board etc.
Holiday Themed Boards
You can create a unique breakfast charcuterie board for almost any holiday!
If you are making a board as part of the mealtime experience, think about what flavors go best together and ensure those match up well visually with the rest of your menu.
Think of the colors used for the holiday and incorporate them into your meal planning. Use red, white, and blue for the 4th of July. Add orange, brown, and yellow for a fall board, or maybe black and orange for Halloween.
You can even use someone’s favorite colors for a birthday board. Just think outside of the box and use your creativity to create these boards.
Appetize Boards to Dessert Boards
Christmas morning is always so busy opening gifts and being with family, so cooking a big breakfast is out for me. However, we all love a delicious breakfast. Even better, who wouldn’t love a breakfast that’s also pretty to look at? If you’re looking to impress your guests for the holidays, you must try creating a breakfast charcuterie board.
This board is filled with deliciousness. I started with an assortment of delicious berries. They always add great color to the tray, and everyone loves fresh fruit for Breakfast.
Next, I prepared my bacon, egg bites, and sausage the night before, so all I had to do it warm them up and put them on the breakfast charcuterie board in the morning.
Have you ever made egg bites? they are one of my favorite go-to snacks, and I always have a stash in the refrigerator.
Egg bites are the perfect touch for a breakfast charcuterie board
I used this recipe from The Spruce Eats. Undeniably they are delicious and full of protein. Next, I whipped up some cinnamon rolls. ( haha, I just warmed these store-bought rolls up in the oven) shhh… nobody will know. Indeed, everything tastes better when it is warm, right?
In addition, I prepared some fresh waffles. I used a high-protein pancake mix called Kodiak Cakes for my waffles and these adorable Christmas waffle makers.
I added a cute pitcher full of warm syrup and a bowl of fresh whipped cream to top off those yummy waffles.
The best part about this board is that it only requires one dish to be cleaned up – which means you won’t have any dishes left after your guests or family leave!
I hope you enjoyed this breakfast charcuterie board idea and found some inspiration for your boards. If you’re looking for more party food ideas, I have a lot more in store for you.
Next up on our blog hop is my friend Jen @midwestlifeandstyle. She has prepared the sweetest movie night Charcuterie tray for everyone to enjoy, so let’s hop on over to Jen’s house in our cozy jammies for a movie night.
