How to Serve Warm Food Boards by The BakerMama

Fewer Dishes, More Fun

One comment I see often is that hot foods must get cold on a food board. They definitely don’t have to! I always say it’s no different than taking plates of warm foods to the table, just less dishes. 😉

How to Keep Food Boards Warm

When building boards with a mix of cooked and cold foods, here are my tips for keeping the warm foods from getting cold:

  • Keep the warm foods warming in a 200°F oven while you put the other foods on the board first, leaving spaces for the warm foods.
  • Add them last. Once you’re ready to eat, add the cooked foods (like pancakes or bacon) to the board and take it to the table to enjoy!
  • Keep extra warming in the oven so you can replenish the board, if necessary.

Hope this helps! ❤️
