This French toast casserole is a perfect for a lazy breakfast or a brunch with…
There are a few things I love more than a good Sunday brunch. And nothing says brunch more than french toast on a breakfast charcuterie board. I love french toast as you’ve seen in my recipe for french toast casserole. This recipe is traditional french toast using challah bread as the base. I have used both brioche and challah bread but for french toast by itself- I like using challah bread. The bread type is super thick and able to soak up the mix.
Breakfast Charcuterie Board with French Toast
What I love about a charcuterie board is it allows a variety of items. With a breakfast charcuterie board, you can add fruit and eggs of different types. I would suggest placing the items in a smaller bowl inside the charcuterie board just because they may be more apt to move around and blend together. You can also add biscuits or blueberry biscuits.
French toast is good for a charcuterie board. Many people don’t know how to make french toast. You need a creamy base Adding Rum Chata is optional but it’s of course a wonderful taste. Rum Chata has a nice creamy flavor with a hint of cinnamon so adding it helps enhance the flavor.
I also like to add turkey bacon and potatoes to the board. Just another means of variety for the charcuterie board. The idea is to make a hodgepodge of breakfast items that someone would eat at any given point.Jump to Recipe
