Elisabeth Dunker from the Fine Little Day blog + shop wrote in with news about her sweet little cutting boards which are popular in Sweden for not only cutting but serving, too. Here are some of Elisabeth’s designs… there are five motives total. In addition to Sweden, Germans use these too only they are called Frühstücksbrettchen and used to butter bread on and prepare sandwiches and toast. You can cut on them too (if they are sturdy enough) though I am too shy to do this because I hate scratching them! After preparing your morning toast or sandwich, the board is then brought to the table and used as a plate too.
I like this as it’s very casual and the variety of designs you can find for these Frühstücksbrettchen range from wood to melamine and beyond in many patterns and colors. Some have a hold at the top so you can hang them from a hook or a nail on the wall, others are with a hole. My favorite cutting board from Elisabeth’s collection is this one, so sweet.
