I always tell people that if you are not a baker during Passover you will be hungry all week long and your family will be grumpy. As soon as the holiday starts, you need two essential categories of baked goods ready as soon as possible. First, you need snacks, so bake some cookies right away. Next, you will need to have a game plan for breakfast.
There were years when I was making omelets every morning, but soon abandoned that plan as my four kids became teenagers and I had no interest in being a short order cook, off and on, from 9 am until 2 pm. One year Sam (now 17) slept until 4 pm every day of Chol Hamoed, and by then I was already making dinner. There is already enough cooking to do all week long so I needed to have something ready for breakfast whenever they woke up, not to mention something requiring minimal cleanup.
I am a yogurt eater, so I have a ready-to-eat breakfast, one enhanced by my recipe for Passover granola recipe: http://www.thekosherbaker.com/blog/farfel-and-fortitude-top-ten-passover-survival-tips. Moreover, once I learned that Nespresso pods were kosher for Passover, I got myself another machine and I am a happy camper every morning during Pesach. My kids, however, lament their usual breakfast cereals and will not touch any of the commercial Passover ones. The recipes below are perfect breakfast treats –one even has vegetables and protein, while the other has fresh fruit. Serve these with some fruit and a glass of milk and everyone will be happy and well nourished.
Wishing you a sweet Passover and enjoy these two great recipes!
