Cutboard – How to Create and Link Plate Recipes

Dashboard -> Inventory Hub -> Cutboard Fuse

In order to create and link plate recipes to menu items you must already have menu items created.  If you do not have menu items for your restaurant, or you do not know how to create custom menu items, please see the tutorial on “How to Create a Custom Menu Item.”


Creating and linking recipes for menu items is managed in the Inventory Hub’s Cutboard Fuse.  To create a new recipe, simply enter your recipe name at the top of the cutboard, then you can begin adding ingredients by searching your ingredients, batch recipes, and yields in the box to the left of the cutboard.  Select the green plus sign to the right of the ingredient to add it to the cutboard.  

Once ingredients have been added to the cutboard, users can edit the amount used and the unit of measurement for each ingredient, which will then be used to show the total cost to make that recipe.  


Above is an example recipe for a Basic Burger that has 8 ounces of ground beef and a bun (we know that this particular bun is 3.5 ounces from the invoice information, which can be viewed below each ingredient in the add ingredients box to the left) which results in a total recipe cost of $1.75.  

To save a recipe and link it to a menu item, below the cutboard select “Save As” then select “Plate Recipe.”  The Select Associated POS Item dialog box will appear.  Locate the menu item that you wish to link your recipe to, select it, then select Link.  


Your linked recipe will then appear at the bottom of the page under “Plate Recipes.”  If it does not appear right away, please refresh your page.  


Once a recipe has been linked to a menu item, users can view plate costing analytics for the menu item in the Inventory Hub’s Menu Fuse.
