Help with first Break Fast menu!
I will be preparing this year's Yom Kippur break fast for the first time. It will be a small group - just myself, my husband, and two friends. But I need some good ideas!
I'd like to do the traditional dishes for sure: blintzes, kugel, bagels and lox, etc... But what else can I or should I add for an extra touch of creativity or just plain yumminess? Do I need to make a "main" entree such as a meat dish? And what kinds of salads might be nice with this food? Any dessert ideas?
I'd like to stick to the traditional items, but would also like to add a "gourmet" flair to it as well. Is that possible?!
Thanks in advance!!
You could do a savory kugel with some veggies to add some variation.
Maybe a chopped salad w/ radish, cucumber, tomato, etc etc?
Traditionally it's a dairy meal w/o a meat dish... you probably won't need one, but if you want you could do a fish dish.
To add flair to blintzes, mayb ea blackberry sauce instead of blueberries? Maybe marscapone cheese? Or orange zest in the fcheese filling?
I make a great savory kugel with very fine egg noodles, cottage cheese, sour cream (or plain yougart), onion, garlic, worchester and tobascco sauces. I top it with parm cheese and smoked paprika. I love the idea of adding veggies to it. What would you use? Mushrooms? Spinach? Tomatoes have too much water.
It's not written down.
Cook a package of very fine egg noodles (or NoYolks), preferably in chicken broth, but that's not essential.
Combine the following in a blender or food processor and process until smooth:
one chopped onion
1 cup cottage cheese
1 cup yogurt or sour cream
salt to taste
T Worchester sauce
a few splashes of hot sauce
Combine with the noodles and put into a casserole. Top with Parmesan cheese and bake for @ 45 minutes at 350. Topping will be brown and bubbly.
Do all the bagels, lox, pickled herring, white fish, etc. But I supplement with a cheese strata (last year) and/or a super sweet noodle pudding. This year think I will add a blintz casserole or something I found that's called challah custard casserole.
