Ultimate Spring Brunch Board…this is that can’t beat brunch spread that has something for everyone. Roasted baby potatoes, crispy bacon, smoked salmon, eggs, tomatoes with burrata, bagels, naan, and all the cream cheese and spreads that every brunch needs…and then some. The potatoes and bacon are cooked together on ONE sheet pan, while the rest of the board is has a mix of store-bought spread, fruits, and veggies, making this an easy way to serve brunch to a crowd.

YOU GUYS…Oh this spread. I am both very excited and also very nervous to share it with you. I’m excited for obvious reasons, as this is one of the most delicious brunch spreads I’ve ever put together. But why am I nervous?

Well, this isn’t really a “recipe”. I mean, it is a recipe, but it’s much more of a concept. There is so much happening on this brunch board. And while I have a few specific items I feel really must be included. The rest of what I’m going to tell you are really just more of my suggestions. I want you guys to be able to take a few ideas from me, and then put your own spin on this brunch board. Adapt it to the flavors and foods you love most!

Does that make sense?

I know this really isn’t any reason to be nervous. But this isn’t your traditional recipe. I want you guys to walk away excited and confident that you can take these spring brunch ideas and recreate this board at home, you know?

Anyway, I’m putting my weird anxious feelings aside and diving right into the details of this board.

PS. I am just very anxious in general this week. A lot is happening and it’s overwhelming me a bit…what’s new.

Let me break this board down piece by piece. The star players are as follows…

roasted potatoes + crispy bacon – both roasted together in the oven to make things easy.

eggs – I recommend a mix of hard boiled and soft scrambled.

cherry tomatoes with burrata – toss the tomatoes in basil pesto for extra deliciousness.

smoked salmon – be sure to include plenty of cream cheese and lemon wedges.

bagels + naan – obviously you need these toasty carbs.

These items make up the bulk of the board, and are items which I think you should include. For some more optional items that I really want to encourage you to play with. Pick out spreads, vegetables, and fruits that you, your friends, and family love.

My recommendations? Hot jarred peppers in oil, fruit jam, honey, avocados, fresh berries, and lots of vegetables. My suggestions are cucumbers, radishes, and red onions. Plenty of fresh herbs, my favorites are chives, basil, and dill. Again, these are my suggestions. Have fun and get creative with the add ons. Customize this brunch board to your own personal taste!

A few tips for success…

– Put out your serving board, serving dishes, and any utensils you will be using the night before. This will save so much time and stress by having everything you need already out and ready.

– Prep all of your vegetables, spreads, and other add ons the night before your brunch. This means slice your vegetables, put the spreads in bowls, and do as much of the prep work as you can.

– The morning of… start roasting the potatoes a couple of hours before guests arrive or even the night before and rewarm in the morning. The potatoes take some time to cook, so be sure to plan for it! These are also just as delicious warm as they are at room temperature, so it’s OK if they are not piping hot.

– The burrata, cream cheese, and creme fresh are all best served at room temperature. So you can put these on your serving board up to an hour before guests arrive.

– For the eggs, I recommend cooking up a big batch of hard boiled eggs the day before, peeling them, and keeping in the fridge until the morning of your brunch. Pull the eggs out of the fridge about 30 minutes before you’re ready to serve.

– Fully assemble the board before your guest arrive, so you’re ready for the hungry crowd, but…

– If you’re making scrambled eggs, these are best eaten pretty soon after they’ve been cooked. I recommend cooking these in a large batch once your guests have arrived. Then add them to the board as your “final” touch.

Not only does this make for a fun spread for Easter, but it’s really great for any Saturday or Sunday morning that you want to make a little extra spacial. Pick up your favorite bagels and coffee, serve a spring cocktail and enjoy a long leisurely spring brunch with friends and family.

Ingredients

Potatoes + Bacon

For the Board

  • 6-12 eggs, cooked to your liking
  • 1 pound smoked salmon
  • red onion, cucumbers, and radishes, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup basil pesto, homemade or store-bought
  • 8 ounces burrata cheese

  • fresh basil, dill, mint, and chives, roughly chopped
  • assorted bagels, naan, or bread, toasted

Instructions

  • 1. To make the potatoes. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
    2. On a large baking sheet, toss together the olive oil, potatoes, paprika, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Lay the bacon flat, draped over the potatoes. Transfer to the oven and roast for 20 minutes, toss and continue roasting another 20-25 minutes, or until golden and the bacon crisp. If the bacon begins getting too crisp before the potatoes are done, remove the bacon from the oven. 
    3. Remove the potatoes and bacon from the oven and transfer to a serving plate/bowl, draining off any excess grease.
    4. To assemble the board. Toss the tomatoes with 1/4 cup pesto and arrange in a bowl with the burrata cheese. Arrange the potatoes, bacon, tomatoes with burrata, smoked salmon, and eggs on a large serving board. Scatter the remaining ingredients around the board, filling in all the gaps. Allow guests to assemble their bagels, naan, and or toast. ENJOY!

    1. Hey Nadia,
      I just purchase those in a jar from my local grocery store. I hope the board is a hit! xTieghan

    1. Hi Cindy,
      I used a very large wood cutting board. I usually find stuff like this at antique stores! Hope this helps:) xTieghan

  2. I love this brunch board idea, all things I love! So many ways you could vary it depending on the time of year and what’s in season too. Definitely going to have to try it! As for Tiger King…I don’t get it, I’m on episode 4 and the whole thing kinda creeps me out a bit and I feel sorry for the animals, but it’s definitely a train wreck…can’t stop watching.
    Take care! Glad you and your family are well. =)

    1. Hi Lynn! Haha that is what I have heard from multiple people! I am so glad you like this and I hope you are doing well too! Thank you! xTieghan

    This is amazing and I can’t wait to make it! I love the idea of concept recipes!! My husband bought me your cookbook for Valentine’s Day this year and I made your cheese board concept for Easter brunch and everyone loved it!

  6. Brunch is the best meal in the world. It’s so versatile and you can eat any kind of meal you want without breaking any social norms! Roasted potatoes, avocado, bread, onions, and cherry tomatoes are SUCH staples for any platter. Totally agree that you can’t skimp on them!

  7. The ladies of our church are planning a spring pot-luck brunch, this is going to be perfect! I love how everything can be prepped ahead of time, this is beautiful.
    Thank you for ALL your wonderful recipes and great ideas.

  8. Tara, I just read the brunch post and stopped to write. I love how your voice rings out true and strong in your writing. You are a unique individual, so talented in multiple ways and I love seeing where your mind takes you no matter how scary it may seems to share these creative thoughts with us. Whether it’s sharing your vision for the ultimate brunch,who cares if it’s not a ‘recipe’ in your mind, I will gobble up your recipes of good ideas and goodness, recipes for pure joy, recipes for sharing joy with others, recipes for allowing mistakes, recipes for getting out of a funk by trying something new that seems to simple to be true, but with the right ingredients, so swoon-worthy to make us feel a bit better when we may be on a low… I have never been so enamoured by a food instagram and website and cookbook as I have of yours–the videos help me so much as a visual learner–especially love when you share things that don’t turn out the way you planned. There’s so much down to earth goodness in the way you write, the way you share, the way you are. Keep those visions coming. Pleasssssse. Sue

    1. Hi Sue! This is so amazing to hear, thank you so much! I hope you continue to love my recipes and blog! xTieghan

    I saw this on an email that compiles a bunch of blogs in one email. I knew it had to be you!! This looks amazing and the concept is right up my alley! Thanks for the inspiration!!

  10. You make the most beautiful poached eggs. Have you ever shared how you poach or made a video of poaching eggs? I would love to know how you get them to turn out so exquisite.

  11. This looks amazing. Question for you, would I be able to increase the bacon quantity without increasing potatoes, or would it be too greasy? ?

    1. Hey Annie! You can increase the bacon, just drain off any excess grease before you serve. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you! xTieghan

  12. Hi Tieghan, I love your blog! Follow it religiously and I’ve made many of your recipe. I love the details about the tools, serving dishes, pots and pans you use. What kind of board did you use for this? Do you have a link to purchase it?

  13. This looks AMAZE! We were already thinking of doing a build-your-own breakfast sandwich idea, so this will make it even easier! We’ll just swap out croissants and English muffins for the bagels and add some sliced cheese and Canadian bacon (which, yuck, but some people like it!). Inspring as always! Thanks!

    1. YES! I am so glad you like this and hope your version turns out amazing Nikki! Thank you! xTieghan

    Wow! Looks incredible!!! I must ask, who eats all of this food after you prepare it?! I’d love that job haha!
    Happy Easter!

    1. All of my family members!! And if they have too much.. my neighbors! Thank you Kristen! xTieghan

  15. Tieghan, I read your posts religiously, that’s how I start my days — a cup of tea, something to nibble on and an update from you. And usually I talk to you in my head because there seems to be never enough time to write… but not this week. This week you’ve been answering all my prayers, so inspiring!! I though I have my guest crowd covered for the weekend with yesterday’s stuffed croissants.. but now this board!! Just pure perfection!! Now I wish my guest would stay for longer so I can do both!! Just perfect, thank you!

    1. This is so amazing to hear Nikki! I am so glad you love my blog and recipes, thank you so much! xTieghan

    I love this idea! I am definitely a breakfast any time of day kind of girl. I love the whole platter. I might change up the scrambled eggs to whipping up a few different frittatas. It’s a bit easier for me as those can be done before guests arrive and still be yummy! You are an amazingly talented and creative woman! Try to calm that anxiety and KNOW you can handle whatever is thrown at you!
