I collaborated with Egglands Best to bring you this sponsored post of charcuterie board ideas. We hope you love them as much as we do!

It feels odd, Christmas is just a month away (5 weeks or so) and yet we still need to celebrate Thanksgiving! Either way, holiday food is upon us, whether that be turkey, brunch, or appetizers! That being said, I dont think much is better on Christmas morning or New Years Day than a tray of delicious foods to nibble from as I celebrate with friends and family. Well, a citrus Paloma cocktail along with the good food ranks right up there, too.

Lets discuss BRUNCH. Specifically festive BRUNCH boards. Mmmm k?

What should be on a charcuterie board for brunch?

That is a great question! Traditional charcuterie board ideas include a variety of dried or cured meats, cheeses, fruit spreads or jelly, and usually flatbreads, crackers, and/or breads.

When youre serving one as a brunch board, you will likely want to include meats and cheeses, but also things such as:

You want to be sure to include things that are not just easy to prep, but ALSO easy for fingers to hang on to. Because I dont know of anyone who likes to remove blueberry compote stains from upholstery.

3 Ways to serve eggs (for brunch) oncharcuterie boards.

Its time to get creative with eggs! I mean creative in the simplest of ways. Were serving Charcuterie brunch boards with 3 types of eggs.

  1. Hard Boiled eggs. Easy peasy if you buy them pre cooked and peeled from Egglands best.
  2. The second way (and my new favorite) is scrambled then baked. We scrambled organic eggs (you may also use egg whites) in heavy cream then stirred in a small about of cream cheese and honey. Pour in small baking dish (or ramekins) and bake at 350 F for 10-15 minutes. OMG so so good! Like sweet and savory all in one. Super Creamy too!
  3. Lastly, soft boiled. Ahh the best to serve with avocado toast. Soft boil organic eggs in boiled water with salt for 5 1/2 minutes then immediately place eggs in ice bath to cool and stop cooking. The result? The perfect soft yolk middle.

Now, that being said..

Are all eggs the same?

When you go shopping for groceries to build these charcuterie board ideas, keep in mind that all eggs are NOT created equally! Honestly, there is a huge difference in quality and nutrition between egg brands.

Egglands Best eggs are my choice to use for these charcuterie board ideas because of their outstanding nutritional quality. In fact, Egglands Best Eggs have significantly more vital nutrients (per egg) compared to ordinary eggs brands.

Egglands Best Eggs vs Ordinary Eggs Nutrition Facts

  • Omega-3 fatty acids Egglands Best Eggs have over DOUBLE the amount of Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega- 3 fatty acids are essential fats. The body cant make Omega-3s from scratch so they must get them from food. Which is why Egglands EGGS are so EGGCELLENT for health! Omega- 3 fatty acids are shown to reduce the risk of heart disease. This nutrient can help keep the membranes that surround all cells in the body working properly.
  • Vitamin D 6x the amount of vitamin D. This vitamin is necessary for building and maintaining healthy bones.
  • Vitamin E More than 5x the amount of vitamin E; an antioxidant that helps to protect cells from the damage.
  • Folate Almost twice as much Folate. Folate, formerly known as folacin, is important for cell growth and metabolism.
  • Lutein 55 mg more than ordinary eggs. Lutein is an antioxidant that protect eye tissues from free radicals (aka cellular damage).
  • Vitamin B12 Twice as much Vitamin B 12, known to help support the nervous system, blood-cell formation, digestion, and brain function.

Pretty cool, eh?

Eat Smart to Stay Healthy

Oh, and you guys, get this! Do you know that November is the American Heart Associations Eat Smart month? I totally didnt know that until I read about it on the Egglands Best website!
I think its fantastic that big brands like Egglands Best team up with other companies and nonprofits to give us tips on eating well and staying healthy. Egglands Best continues to be a proud national supporter of the American Heart Associations Healthy for Good movement, which encourages people to take small steps every day to build lifelong healthy habits for themselves and their families.
Egglands Best launched a Better Family Meals program and its making a HUGE difference in the way families eat. You can find all of the details about the program HERE.

Now, let me tell you whats in each of these delicious and OH SO easy to build brunch boards, mkay?

4 Charcuterie Board Ideas


  • Creamed scrambled eggs with cream cheese and heavy whipping cream mixed in. All you need to do is bake the eggs in a casserole dish for 10 minutes before serving. I use Egglands organic eggs for this recipe.
  • Gouda cheese
  • Avocado toast with tzatziki yogurt sauce
  • Prosciutto or sliced ham and cherry tomatoes
  • Fresh basil This compliments the other flavors on the board, clears your palate, and it has great nutritional value, too!
  • Coffee My choice is, hands down, an iced bulletproof coffee


  • Gouda and soft Brie cheeses
  • Yogurt with honey and granola
  • Soft boiled Egglands organic eggs Soft boil the eggs in water for 5 1/2 minutes. Then, move to an ice water bath for 15 minutes before peeling.
