I love this Ham Cheese Brunch Board because you can make little sandwiches with a cracker, a slice of cheese, and a slice of Canadian bacon (or ham).

And what’s not to love about hickory smoke, cheddar, and bacon? Have you tried Smoky Bacon Cheddar Cheese? They have the best flavors for food boards!

Sunrise … sunset?

Sunrise …. sunset …. what’s your favorite to take in?

For me, it’s both. We have had some pretty spectacular displays here in central Oregon lately!

They are beautiful right where we live. But last week we were in Yellowstone, up at 5 am, to witness some of the most beautiful sunrises! Be still my heart. You can follow along on my Instagram highlights!

Summer brunch board

But if you’re an early riser, and thinking about breakfast or brunch, today I’m sharing a new summer brunch board. You may also want to try my Epic Summer Waffle Brunch Board or Scrambled Egg Brunch Charcuterie Board.  You can also try this Risotto Brunch Bowl.

And for the record, I’m never disappointed when I wake to see a glorious sunrise!

Make your soft-boiled eggs the night before, make some muffins (or storebought’s fine, too!), and grab some fruit from the farmer’s market.

New boards (4 sizes)!

As I always say, Friends, size this board according to the number you are feeding.

I’m very very excited to share we have 4 new boards we are selling.

The height of the lip (I rarely serve any board here on my blog without a lip:) is perfect so the food doesn’t fall off.

They have cutout handles underneath.

And of course, the boards are FOOD SAFE!
