  • You can use what you have.
  • Make one dish the “star” (as in waffles, pancakes, a breakfast bread).
  • Anything can go on a board – and it’s neat and tidy!

Ideas how to build a brunch board?

Use foods that your family eats often for breakfast, brunch or dinner. Then think about all the toppings that you can put into small bowls (or right on the board)–so make your own masterpiece.

Build a board small to feed a few, or EPIC to feed a crowd. The beauty is that you can use whatever you want, and it’s sure to be enjoyed by all!
