What Did We Put On Our Brunch Board

- Fresh Fruit – Strawberries, Blueberries, Cantaloupes, Grapes.
- Donut Holes
- Easter Chocolates
- Hard Boiled Eggs
How Long Can You Leave Out This Grazing Board?
The grazing board will have perishable items like the meats and such. You want to leave it out up to two hours, and then after that it needs to be refrigerated for at least 30 minutes before you bring it back out for serving.
The two hour mark is a “danger” zone temperature where it gets too a temperature that can create bacteria to grow quicker. So aim for under two hours, or refrigerate as I mentioned above before the two hour mark.
How to Assemble This Easter Brunch Board?
Full steps are in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post. This is a visual walk through for readers.
Step One: Shape your fruit, pancakes and waffles. Then on a corner I created a line of stacked items. These are the bigger items so I placed them first to ensure I could have room for them.
Step Two: Next, you will put some fruit in bowls or cupcake liners. Then place your bunny shaped cantaloupe on your board in an empty spot.
Step Three: Next begin to place all other foods around the board. Try to cover all areas of the board. Just cluster items in small bundles to fill the whole board.
The idea is to crowd the board with items in groups. As you can see some items I put in a few different spots. Like the strawberries are in 2-3 batches throughout the board. This helps even it all out.
Step Four: Now you can buy some fresh herbs and place in the side areas around the edges that look bare. This will complete the look. But you can also skip this step if you want.
