Holiday Brunch Charcuterie Board with Mickey Waffles

Ingredients Needed For A Mickey Waffle Charcuterie Board

The hardest aspect of creating any charcuterie board is going to be deciding what goes on it; the rest is fairly easy! I ADORE creating them!

This charcuterie board “recipe” is really just a guide on how to set up a board of delicious Mickey waffles and toppings to serve at your next Christmas breakfast or brunch.

The items listed below are used in the board featured in this post.

But if you can’t source a particular element, don’t like something, or want to switch to something else – go for it!

Waffle Flavors

TIP! If you are unable to source the different flavored waffle mixes, you could always add hot cocoa powder to make chocolate waffles, red food coloring to make red waffles, and throw some chocolate chips into the mixture for the chocolate chip waffles.

Fruit

  • Strawberriescut in half through the leaves and stem for a pretty presentation.
  • Blackberries

TIP! Ensure that you use fresh fruit rather than frozen which will end up being mushy on your board.

Waffle Toppings

Garnishes

TIP! Can’t find the exact toppings and garnishes we used? Don’t worry – use whatever products are available to you. That’s the beauty of any type of charcuterie board!

Disney Christmas Breakfast! Mickey Waffle Charcuterie

Equipment Needed For This Recipe

  • Mickey Waffle Maker – you can’t make Mickey waffles without a Mickey Mouse-shaped waffle maker! This one makes waffles like they have at Disney restaurants, but there are cheaper alternatives that make different-styled Mickey waffles.
  • Electric Mixerto whisk up the waffle batter.
  • Wooden Board – or a platter to place all of the charcuterie elements on. The large white platter you see in these photos is 9″ x 13″, but you can use one you have to hand and adjust to the items to fit.
  • Small Bowls – to serve the toppings in. You could also use a ramekin.
  • Sharp Knife
  • Chopping/Cutting Board – to cut and prepare the food.
  • Small Plates – for guests to eat from. This might be ceramic plates, or paper plates, which will depend on your event.
  • Charcuterie Utensils – tongs, spoons, etc. You will need them for guests to pick up foods from the charcuterie board, and utensils to eat with.

Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use cup and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog. I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. Please note, that you can mix cup measurements with weighted measures, but never mix imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, liters, etc.,).

Christmas Charcuterie Breakfast Board Idea with Mickey Mouse Waffles

How Do I Make A Charcuterie Board With Mickey Waffles?

The printable recipe card has the full ingredients list and instructions and can be found at the end of this post.

We used a large, rectangular serving platter, but you may use any size and shape you have available, you will need to adjust the placement of items to fit.

CHARCUTERIE PLACEMENT TIPS!

  • Arrange items in uniform patterns on the board.
  • Group the same items together.
  • Try to keep similar colors separate if possible.
  • Fill in all available space.

Step 1: Using a Mickey waffle maker, make your various waffle flavors. You will need 2-3 of each flavor, depending on how many people you want to serve.

Cover and keep warm while you make all of the Mickey waffles.

           

Step 2: Lay 10-12 Mickey waffles in a diagonal line across your platter or board, alternating the colors.

Step 3: Place bowls or ramekins with whipping cream (top with a few sprinkles), syrup, peppermint chips, Christmas tree candy, and Christmas sprinkles. Use the photo below as a guide.

Step 4: Add the berries on either side of the waffles, then fill in the remaining spaces with the chocolate and butterscotch chips, M&M’s, peppermint sticks, and HERSHEY’S Kisses.

Place any remaining waffles on opposite sides of the platter. Serve and enjoy!

What is the Best Board To Use for Charcuterie?

It’s a common misconception that a charcuterie board must be displayed on a wooden board.

But you can use slate, marble, ceramic, and glass, and even line a counter or table with parchment paper and lay everything out direct. (Very popular on TikTok!)

Take a look at your trays and platters – I’m sure there is one in your kitchen you could use.

There are really no hard and fast rules – use what you have, or invest in a good quality non-porous hardwood or bamboo board to use for charcuterie.

Hardwoods such as olive, black walnut, teak, and acacia are best.

Softwoods like oak or ash are not good to use as a charcuterie as they’re too porous and the oils and aromas will leak into the wood.

No matter what shape it is – square, rectangle, round, or otherwise – reserve the board you’ll use to serve your charcuterie solely for that use. Don’t chop food on it as well.
