It is always a good time for a brunch charcuterie board.
When you know, you know. I am all about brunch and charcuterie boards. Any time is good for both of these. So enter in this brunch charcuterie board. It is not only easy to put together, but is more than delicious. Making this charcuterie board perfect for Mother’s Day.
No eggs required.
The first thing that normally pops into my mind when I think of brunch is eggs. This brunch is without all the eggs. With it being a brunch charcuterie board, eggs wouldn’t be as good cold. So what kind of breakfast items is this brunch board going to include? An assortment of crescent roll recipes, fruit, and pecans all make up this brunch menu. Let’s talk more about the assortment of crescent roll recipes.
Brunch with crescent rolls.
I don’t know about y’all, but we love us some Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. They are good any time of day. For the purpose of this recipe, we will stick to enjoying them during the morning hours. I have had bacon, egg, and cheese crescents as well as crescents rolled around in cinnamon and sugar. This brunch charcuterie board needed items that would sit well and would be more savory and than sweet. These 3 different recipes bring this and more to a brunch menu.
Plus, there is something about using crescent rolls that always takes things up a notch. Do you think they make mealtime fancier like I do?
3 crescent rolls’ recipes for the board.
Alright, I have done a lot of talking about brunch and it’s menu options, but not so much about the recipes of the day. I knew a brunch board that was a great mixture of savory and with fruit would be perfect for Mother’s Day. That’s where these 3 different recipes come into play. The first one is done by using Pillsbury Crescent Dough Sheets. You will create wonton looking pastries that will be filled with a cream cheese and sausage filling.
The second one is done by using Pillsbury Crescent rolls. I know a lot of you have probably had these already or at least heard of them before, Pigs in a Blanket. These will never leave my recipe box, so good! Lastly, we have a ham and cheese filled Pillsbury Crescent dough square. Ham and cheese is always welcomed at lunch time.
The great thing with all of these 3 recipes is that you can opt to have some of the filling left out of the crescent rolls for those who can’t eat the them due to dietary restrictions.
- 2 cans of Pillsbury Crescent Dough Sheets
- 1 can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
- 1 16oz roll of pork sausage
- 1 8oz cream cheese

- 1/2 cup of shredded triple cheese
- 1 12oz Beef Cocktail Smokies
- 1 cup of strawberries, in slices

- 1 tsp of dill weed
- 1/4 tsp of salt
- 1 tsp of black pepper
- 1 tsp of onion powder
- 1 tsp of Italian Seasoning

- Prepare cream cheese and sausage filling: cook pork sausage on medium heat until fully cooked, then add cream cheese.
- Add all the seasonings and stir well. Once the cream cheese and sausage if fully mixed together remove from heat.
- Roll out the crescent dough sheet onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Cut it into 18 squares.
- Place about a tablespoon into the center of each dough square and fold in and pinch, similar to like a wonton.
- Cook for about 10-12 minutes or until the edges turn slightly brown.
- Now prep the pigs in a blanket. Roll out the crescent roll dough onto parchment paper. You will cut the pre-cut triangles in half to make them smaller to wrap the cocktail smokies.
- Heat up the cocktail smokies over medium heat for about 4 minutes, stirring the entire time.
- Wrap each cocktail smoky with the crescent roll dough by place the cocktail smoky on the wider end of the dough triangle and rolling it up.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until them begin to brown
- Lastly, time to prep the ham and cheese crescent pastries. Heat up the canadian bacon over medium heat for about 5 minutes, flipping half way.
- Roll out the crescent dough sheet on parchment paper. Cut the dough sheet into 8 squares.
- Place one piece of canadian bacon into the center of each square.
- Next, place about a tablespoon of the shredded cheese on top.
- Now bring each corner to the center and press together. The size of the canadian bacon will either make this step easy or a little more work.
- Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until the edges begin to brown.
- After all 3 pastries have been baked, it is time to create the charcuterie board. Place the 3 different crescent roll pastries onto the board, along with a bowl of sliced strawberries and banana. Add the pecans as well as the fillings from the crescent rolls.
