Pesach breakfast ideas?

After two or three days of eggs and matzah, and another couple with farfel "granola," I get a little burned out. Does anyone have any ideas for tasty, healthy Passover breakfasts? (and please, not that terrible cereal!)

  1. While I am on Atkins mode my breakfast on most days is a scoop of cottage cheese and a scoop of sour cream with a packet of Splenda on it with a cup of coffee. So I guess a non-diet pesach varient would be Cottage cheese w/wo sour cream w/wo some sugar, or cottage cheese with some fruit cut up in it. Add to that matzo and a cup of joe.

    1. I switch off with TempTee Cream cheese on Matzah - either Yehudah or Shmurah - but I like my Matzah Brei for breakfast

        The simple beauty of whipped TempTee on matzoh is something I occasionally crave during the other 357 days of the year. The wife's simple breakfast is a slice of munster on matzo microwave for about 10 seconds.

          speaking of TempTee.. it's on sale at Fairway this week for 99cents. My husband like it with chopped veggies mixed in..

            Also great with chopped green olives.

            1. re: ferret

              cream cheese and olives on matzah... a classic

              1. re: cheesecake17

                I hear that - I am now ready for Pesach!

                1. re: weinstein5

                  my husband is counting down till he can open that container of cream cheese!

      2. I also make Pesach granola and this year I see "whole grain matza farfel".

        1. yogurt and fruit, matzoh with cream cheese and jelly, scrambled eggs and home fries or hash browns, or even left over latkes. or you can make a fritada with your favorite veggies in it. or bake a fruit kugel.

            Got nothin' light for you , but my two stand-bys are always excellent

            Omelet with chopped lox and a healthy dollop of cream cheese added just before the fold.

            Corned beef hash. Smoked a corned beef brisket last year and chopped up the small amount of leftovers with potato and onion. Cooked it in a skillet until it formed a crust and then served it up with a runny-yolk fried egg on top. Best.breakfast.ever.

              smoked a corned beef brisket? you must be down south

              1. re: berel

                Pastrami is essentially smoked corned beef. I'm a Northerner, but I like my smoke. Smoking 30lbs of brisket and a couple of sides of salmon for the seders this year.

          2. Matzah pizza works for breakfast as well as lunch: smear a little olive oil on the piece of matzah, cover with a spoonful of tomato paste, or some diced tomatoes, and grate some mozzerella over the top. Sprinkle on some oregano, basil, hot peppers, etc. and broil until the cheese is bubbly. Yum.

            That said, I could eat eggs every day, with a slice of matzah, cream cheese and jelly. I eat cereal the rest of the year.
