Brunch Board

With the holiday right around the corner, you’re likely feeding a few extra mouths.  Brunch boards are a favorite of mine and the perfect way to celebrate.  They come together easily and can wow a crowd!  And, remember, one of our top tips for a successful Thanksgiving dinner is to feed your crowd early (either breakfast, brunch or appetizers) to keep them from “lingering” in the kitchen while you are working hard on the meal.

  • Start with a large cutting board or tray and position a few small containers or ramekins on it.  I like to fill these with berries, jams or even nuts.  Next, work your bigger items around the ramekins.  This could be bagels, banana bread or even a coffee cake.  Now, we are ready to fill in with some protein.  Perhaps a frittata, hard boiled eggs or some cooked bacon?  Lastly up, fill in any open spaces with extra fruit, garnish with fresh herbs or flowers and you are ready to go!⁣
  • My tricks for easy prep the morning of? ⁣
  • Lay out your cutting board or serving piece along with any smaller bowls so you can see how it will all fit and look.⁣
  • Pre-wash and pre-portion your fruit so it’s ready to go!⁣
  • Prep any quick breads ahead of time.  You can make these up to a week in advance.  Wrap in foil and place in a gallon sized storage bag and place in freezer.  The night before, defrost on the counter and then cut into pieces the morning of.⁣
  • Hard boiled eggs and candied bacon can also be made a day ahead.⁣
  • Make it easy on yourself and grab a half dozen bagels or donut holes.  Easy, crowd pleasing and a great addition to any board!⁣
  • When in doubt, add fresh greens with herbs and flowers to spice it up!⁣
