What is a Grazing Board?

Similar to a charcuterie board, but a grazing board isn’t limited to meats and cheeses. You can choose a theme and build a board around it. It often has small items that people can just stand around and graze from, but can also include full sized items.

Make sure to include some items that people don’t have to cut or use silverware to eat. But also include small plates for those that prefer to graze from their own plate.

How to Assemble a Breakfast Grazing Board

This is the fun part! Try to visualize what you want before you start. Don’t be afraid to move things around as you go.

Step 1. Choose your food and supplies

Choose the items you want on your grazing board. Cook or heat everything so it is ready to go. Choose your serving board or platter, as well as your bowls and spoons.

Step 2. Fill and place bowls and large items

Fill your bowls with jams, gravy, berries and other things you don’t want falling or running off the board. You can plate some main items or just layer them around.

Begin by placing a few main bowls or plates on the board. Use small lids or mini bowls to raise other items.

Step 3. Fill in empty spaces

Place smaller bowls or glasses around the board. Fill in areas with fruit, breads, and cheeses.

Step 4. Add serving utensils and finishing touches

Add the spoons to the bowls that need them and lay out plates.

You can set up drinks near your board as well.

Tips for Making a Breakfast Grazing Platter

  1. Don’t hesitate to buy frozen or refrigerated items that you can just heat and serve. Key to a grazing board is fast and easy.
  2. These are great to make and take to a sick friend, new mother, or aging loved one.
  3. A great grazing board will be crowded with items. The more, the better! You want everyone to feel there is plenty for all to graze.
  4. Layering items is great. You can layer by adding mini bowls on the board and placing another bowl on top. This will raise the bowl and it can be crowded in, overlapping a plate or bowl.
  5. Make everything mini, such as waffles or pancakes, so they become finger food and you can dip in maple syrup.
