Epic Summer Waffle Brunch Board

Easy-to-make Epic Summer Waffle Brunch Board, perfect for a weekend breakfast. Building a brunch board is easy, with waffles, fruit, eggs, scones, and meat!

Friends, are you looking to build an Epic Waffle Brunch Board? Start with a quick run to your local Trader Joe’s for everything on this list today!

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!

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!

This is the ultimate summer Brunch Board…so good.

24-inch Charcuterie Board

Friends, here is the board that I LOVE. It’s 24-inches in diameter with a 2-inch lip. A “lip” is the secret to the best charcuterie or dinner board, because the food does not fall off.

Here are the LINKS:

MEDIUM Hand-Carved Vine Round Tray (white washed) – 20 inches round. Buy >> HERE (affiliate link)

SMALL Hand-Carved Gabrielle Tray (gray) – 18-inches round. Buy >> HERE (affiliate link)

MEDIUM Willow Hand-Carved Tray (mango wood, gray) – 20.25 inches round. Buy >> HERE (affiliate link)

MEDIUM Whitewashed Mosaic Wood Tray (antique white) – 20-inches round. Buy >> HERE (affiliate 

Rememember it says it is “not food safe,” so you need to prepare the board by either laying down parchment paper under the food, or you can “season” it like we did.

Here are a few other options:

Courtland Wooden Lazy Susan – 18-inch round. Buy >> HERE (affiliate link)

LAZY SUSAN is a board that spins. It does NOT have a lip, but it’s cool for the center of the table.

Here’s an 18-inch wine barrel wood board or a 24-inch hammered large round tray or a 26-inch stainless steel serving platter that you may also like! Check out the weight on these boards.

How to season a Charcuterie Board

If a wood board says it “not food safe,” you can lightly sand it down with sand paper, and rub down with beeswax and mineral oil.

We used this butcher block and cutting board oil conditioner after we lightly sanded the board down.

Or, lay down parchment paper! Easy peasy!

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.

Dinner breakfast boards

I love dinner and breakfast boards because you can adapt the flavors and foods to the season, like I did with this pumpkin waffle board. This was a big hit at Thanksgiving time!

Canning peaches with mom

All the flavors you love most! For summer …. it’s peaches for me!

When I think of peaches, I think of summer. Long, hot days in the kitchen with my mom skimming skin off peaches, and sliding them into canning jars. That was my job, since my hand was smaller than mom’s, and at that time, she did not use “wide-mouth” canning jars. Now canning is much easier, with wide-mouth openings on jars!

I love peach season so much, and by adding a giant bowl in the center of this Epic Waffle Board—well, that’s the perfect summer treat. :)
