The classic cheese tray just got an update with this beautiful brunch cheese board idea. Since cheese and charcuterie are so much in the spotlight right now, I wanted to add one to our Christmas brunch menu. We typically pull out the cheese board during the cocktail hour but let’s face it – cheese is perfect for ANY meal!
All you have to do to make this a brunch-friendly cheese board is include a few cheeses, some breakfast protein (hello, bacon!), fruit, and some carbs like fruit & nut breads, scones, etc. Check out the images below for inspiration on arranging the cheese and accompaniments. Then see my list of items to include.
What to put on a Brunch Cheese Board
Here are some terrific items to include on your holiday cheese board especially for brunch. I’ve included some links to recipes that you can make ahead, and the cheeses are from Sartori. The peppermint bellavitano is SO good for Christmas. Don’t let the name fool you – the peppermint flavor is very subtle and confined to the outside rubbed area. It’s delicious for this special occasion!
I used mostly red fruits in order to stay with the theme, and added herbs like thyme, bay leaves, and rosemary for garnish. The spiced pecans are a holiday tradition in the South and are a fantastic addition to the board.
This brunch cheese board can be served in addition to a regular brunch so I added minimal meat to it. The small bacon skewers are a wonderful choice, though. All the flavors on the board are complementary to one another and nothing is over powering. I really love this idea and think it would be nice for a New Years Day brunch party as well.
