What to Include in Breakfast Charcuterie
When it comes to breakfast charcuterie, there are a few key things you’ll want to include. First, you’ll need some sort of meat. This could be ham, bacon, sausage, or even just some good old-fashioned salami. Next, you’ll want to add in some cheese. A variety of cheeses is always best, so feel free to mix and match. Then, you’ll want to add in some fruits and vegetables. This could be anything from grapes and strawberries to carrots and celery. And finally, you’ll want to add in some crackers or bread for dipping. With these four key ingredients, you’ll have everything you need for a delicious breakfast charcuterie spread.
How to Make Breakfast Charcuterie
Charcuterie for breakfast? Yes, please! This protein-packed breakfast will keep you full until lunchtime. Here's how to make it:
1. Start with a base of meat and cheese. Choose your favorite cured meats and cheeses - we like ham, salami, and chorizo, with aged cheddar and Gruyere.
2. Add some fresh fruit and vegetables for sweetness and crunch. Think grapes, apple slices, fennel, and radishes.
3. Round it out with some savory accoutrements. We love olives, pickles, mustards, and honey.
