How to make a Pancake Board
- Determine how many you plan to feed. The pancake board here feeds 4-6 people.
- Decide what to include on your breakfast board. You can go with a basic theme such as breakfast, or expand on it to make it a tropical breakfast or a pumpkin spice brunch.
- Determine bowls, plates, and other serverware you will need. I have a few suggestions on this below.
- Prepare food items.
- Serve food items in bowls and plates.
Making a breakfast board is easy if you have coordinating server ware. It doesn't even need to be a set. I like using white bowls, trays, and ramekins to make the food board.
There are so many options of what to choose to serve on your board. Here are a few:
Pancakes– of course, they are the star of this show. I like to use regular Bartlett pears because they are juicy, plump and they hold their shape after being baked. I don’t peel them and use baked and raw wedges in the salad. The contrast is wonderful.
Meats - Bacon, Sausage, or Chorizo can be added to the board.
Fresh Fruit – Fresh fruit is a must for any board. It brings a sense of seasonality and color to the meal.
Muffins– Depending on the season, you could choose...
Condiments - Syrup, butter, powdered sugar are a few items you can include as toppings depending on what you decide to serve.
- Peanut butter
- Fruit sauces
- Whipped topping
- Bananas or baked apples.
Use what you have on hand for serving. I also have a fun collection of food board serverware ideas at my Amazon shop.
