Whether you’re throwing a party for grown-ups or hanging out with the kids, one thing that always makes Halloween more fun is food. And what better way to start the day than with a festive Halloween breakfast charcuterie board? Charcuterie boards are all the rage these days, and for a good reason. They’re easy to put together and always a hit with guests. They’re a great way to get everyone in the Halloween spirit.
How to Create a Halloween Breakfast Charcuterie Board
To put together a Halloween breakfast charcuterie board, start with a base of Halloween-themed bread and pastries. Then, add some spooky seasonal fruits and vegetables, like peeled clementines that look like mini pumpkins or blackberries that look like eyeballs. For the meat and cheese portion of your board, choose items that will be easy to grab and eat on the go. For example, Black Forest ham and cheese slices are a great option.
You can also get creative with pancake and waffle shapes. Many waffle makers on the market are shaped like creepy skulls, bats, and pumpkins.
Then, arrange all your ingredients on a platter or board creatively. For example, you could create a graveyard scene by using black olives for tombstones and arranging the meats and cheeses to look like ghosts. Or, you could go for a more traditional route and simply arrange the meats, cheeses, and fruits in an eye-catching way.
Finally, don’t forget the decorations. Top your board with plastic spiders, ghosts, or other small Halloween trinkets. Or, if you want to keep it simple, just stick with a few black and orange cupcake toppers.
