Breakfast Charcuterie  is my offering for today,  consisting of several concept ideas and smaller recipes. At first I was going to do  something else,  but got an  idea to do this on a lark.

Now I can’t recall what the first thing was going to be so I guess forgetting that one was a good thing.  However.

Nobody will be forgetting this tasty display anytime soon. Especially because it is  so  easy. You will notice that I messed up on the topic a little bit- since I was putting my idea in place on  my feet in the market. I spaced about it needing to be a cheese board and was just thinking charcuterie.

Although typically charcuterie is cold cuts and mostly pork. Well, I do  have a bit of pork here, and even chocolate salami.

But a “little” short on cheese. And I  actually was going to include some, but my eyes were bigger than my charcuterie tray as my mother would have said. Something had to give and it was the cheese.

The ideas for breakfast charcuterie can be many. And you can certainly  mix  and match. Some things I made, other things I bought. I used easiest methods since there were  many things to put together.  The idea is not to work yourself to death. Do  what you have time for.

Which I why I used some packaged dough  (biscuits and crescents) to make those things super easy.
