Make a statement and save time with on-trend displays

Whether you call it a food board or grazing board, these platters are perfect for feeding a catered crowd since preparation and serving can be simple, plus a variety of guest preferences can be met.

Although a traditional charcuterie board of meats, cheese, and crudites is what may have started the food-board trend, event operators are serving up spreads throughout the day — starting with breakfast.

Building a breakfast board

You might approach a breakfast board like a continental breakfast buffet, but in this case, items are packaged differently. Plan for a mix of:

  • Proteins like eggs, bacon, sausage, and nut butters
  • Dairy items like yogurt and cheeses
  • Fruits, both fresh and preserved, like a jam
  • Grains, including breads, pastries, and granola

Start your next morning event with a show-stopping display that blends savory and sweet with a Breakfast Charcuterie Board.

A bunch of boards are possible

Convenient and versatile items from the Pillsbury speed-scratch baking portfolio, including croissants, biscuits, brownies, cinnamon rolls, scones, and more can anchor your eye-catching spreads throughout the day. Attractive for afternoon or evening events, guests can customize sweet treats to their liking with a Brownie Board.

Here are just a few example ideas:

Assorted berries and brownies assembled on a tray with creamy dip. Toothpicks with red wooden beads on the end in a pile on side of tray on dark granite counter.

Whether a group is celebrating a big game or relishing a regional favorite, a Southern Fried Board is just the ticket.

Encourage attendees to try out tastes from global cuisines like a Mediterranean Board.

Celebrations and cake are a dynamic yet overdone duo, so shake things up with a Birthday Cake Board instead.
