You have heard it a million times: breakfast is the most important meal of the day. What you don’t hear often is that it is also the funnest meal to make. Especially if you take the time to make it interactive. In today’s blog, I am going to help you create epic breakfast and brunch boards with Machika’s 100% bamboo cheese board that will get everyone, whether they like mornings or not, excited.
THE PANCAKE BOARD
Let’s start with the easy yet extremely delicious pancake board. Using your favorite pancake recipe, cook up some medium sized pancakes. Lay your pancake stack through the middle of the board and decorate around it with your favorite toppings. Fruits, jams, maple syrup, bacon, eggs, are all fair game.
This board is sensational. Everyone gets to decorate and personalize their pancakes. The kids will get a thrill out of being able to serve their own food and make crazy designs on their pancakes.
Pro tip (you know we love these): heat up your maple syrup! This will add that restaurant feel to your board, making the syrup smoothly slide off your cup and onto your pancake. Ihop who?
THE PARFAIT BOARD
In the mood for something a little healthier? Build. Your. Own. Parfait. Board.
Just picture it. A variety of foods, nuts, granola elegantly laid around different types of yogurts. This board is sure to please every palate.
When assembling it, shoot to have three types of yogurt. We recommend plain Greek, strawberry, and blueberry yogurt. Then, get as crazy as you want with the accouterments. For your fruits, any type of berry work. For your nuts, any type of nut works. For your granola, any type of granola works. That is how amazingly simple this board is. Anything works.
Take it to the next level by adding some honey, sliced bananas, and shredded coconut. Wow, “chef kiss”.
THE BAGEL BOARD
Last but not least, my personal favorite, the bagel board. It is the ultimate brunch experience. Much like the pancake board, you are going to want to lay your different bagels through the middle of your board. Get as many types of bagels as your can. The more options, the more crazy creations you and your loved ones can create.
Place cream cheese spreads in small bowls. Then put these small bowls along one of the concave edges of the board to prevent them from moving. Put some peanut butter, honey, jam, and chocolate hazelnut spread on the opposite corner of the board.
Fan tomato, avocado, and red onion slices along your bagels. Then cook up some bacon and hard boiled eggs to expand your filling options. Fill in your board’s empty spaces with some fruits and berries. For the final touch, place some condiments like red pepper flakes and everything bagel seasoning in tiny bowls somewhere in your board.
EVERYONE IS INVITED
