Am I alone in finding breakfast the hardest meal to organise during Pesach? Surely not. If you’re used to starting the day with toast or cereal, then like me, you’re probably struggling too. Or at least, you’re struggling like I used to do! For the last few years I’ve been creating, honing, testing, and devouring a selection of Pesach-friendly breakfasts that is sure to please even the most fussy of family-members. These breakfasts have all been tested out on my own family and friends and given the thumbs up 👍.
You can choose something different every day, from ‘porridge’ to pop tarts, french-toast-style breakfast bake, and even pancakes. There’s no excuse for matzah and jam every morning! Treat your family to these delicious breakfasts and start every Pesach morning off right.
Fruit and nut breakfast loaf
Packed with dried fruits and nuts, low in fat and with no added sugar, this loaf is terrific for breakfast – I love it spread with lashings of butter. You can even toast it!
Overnight matza breakfast bake
This fabulous prepare-ahead breakfast is the Pesach equivalent of a french toast casserole or bread pudding, and just as delicious. This is one of my most popular recipes of all time, and for good reason!
Paleo porridge – no grains, no dairy and no added sugar
This is so good! Creamy and delicious, and full of fibre from the nuts and bananas. You can top it with sliced fruit for added vitamins and a burst of colour. Substitute juice or milk for the coconut water if you prefer – it’s delicious either way.
Pesach Pop Tarts
A light crumbly crust around a delicious fruity filling – who wouldn’t want one of these for breakfast?! Vary the fillings, and don’t forget to make a few extras for snacks too.
Streusel-topped blueberry muffins
Yes, really! Moist, crumbly, delicious muffins, topped with sweet, crunchy streusel and studded with juicy blueberries. These will disappear quickly so make sure you grab one for yourself first!
4-ingredient flourless pancakes
Kids go wild over these super-simple little pancakes. Serve with butter, syrup and fruit for a healthy and delicious breakfast.
Cheese & onion omelette muffin bites
If you prefer something savoury, these tasty omelette muffin bites will be right up your street. They also make a lovely light lunch with a fresh green salad.
You might also like this easy vegetable crustless quiche, this green shakshuka, or even this incredible lemon & cinnamon charoset spread on matzah. Take a look through the Pesach recipe archives and let me know what your family loves in the comments below.
