New Year’s Brunch Board

Number of Servings

  • All Servings
  • Nutrition

Just like the Christmas charcuterie board, this New Year’s brunch board is an easy finger food meal that can easily be created with different food combinations. The one shown consists of waffles, bacon, various fruits, dark chocolate chips, Greek yogurt, super food granola, toasted walnuts, and maple syrup. Use your imagination and create a board that your family will love! If you don’t have a wooden board, use a platter or large plate. Also, kids love designing boards! Have fun!

 

**On a health note, gluten free waffle mix can be purchased, nitrate free bacon is the best for you, as is maple syrup.**

*Varies depending on items on board*
