Epic Summer Waffle Brunch Board

Of course if you don’t have a Trader Joe’s, all of these items can be found in your local grocery store.

How to make a brunch waffle board

Start with multi-grain waffles (did you know Trader Joe’s also sells gluten-free?)

Next, add a fruit in season in the middle of an epic board. (*details on the board below)

Build around it all of your favorite breakfast or brunch foods, like – scones or muffins, bratwurst or bacon, and soft-cooked eggs.

You’ll need condiments like butter, jellies, and maple syrup!

Waffle TIP to keeping hot

How do you keep the waffles hot? We toast them in the oven and then keep turn the oven to low, and keep warm until right before serving. Don’t set them out until you’re ready to eat! Let everyone dig in!

Make ahead waffles and freeze

If you have time, you can always make your own waffles ahead and freeze. But when company’s coming, or we’re hosting a brunch, I keep Trader Joe’s waffles in the freezer. They’re actually just as good as homemade.

Here are a couple homemade waffle recipes on RE: Pear Farro Blender Pancakes and Shredded Zucchini Almond Flour Pancakes.

It only takes 5 minutes to bake all of these waffles!

Pancakes or waffles

This is the ultimate summer Brunch Board…so good.

Or, you may want to try my Epic Silver Dollar Pancake Board or Trader Joe’s EPIC Pumpkin Pancakes Board for brunch!

You just can’t beat a brunch spread for a large group, because there’s something for everyone to choose from!

My epic board ideas aren’t really a “recipe” but a style idea for hosting a large gathering.

This board is also fun to make on the 12 x 36 inch board (link below). We’ve made a delicious Best Brunch Board (with bagels), and then this Mexican Tostada Breakfast Board. Breakfast for dinner? (wink wink)

Other meats to add to the board

Of course you can swap out waffles for pancakes, or bagels and scones. 

Instead of brats, add bacon, sausage, or you can even leave off the meat.

So many options for making a breakfast board.
