    I need my breakfast even if it gets pushed off to dinner so I vote for scrambled eggs, toast, cheese danish and coffee.

      My favorite post-fast dish is a blintz soufflé. There's a recipe on the boxes of most frozen blintzes. Add berries.

        I start with water, ginger ale or cranberry juice. Then usually homemade honeycake. No lox or bagels for me. I usually have blintz souffle, mac and cheese or milchig noodle kugel. Simpeple and comforting

        That's easy for me.
        Family tradition:
        #1 a shot of whiskey
        #2 Black coffee and a piece of challah
        #3 Fleischiges (usually leftovers from the fridge/freezer for me. Rest of immediate family goes next door to MIL for milchiges (wife's family tradition).

        Bagelman only eats bagels for morning breakfast, not evening break fast, and he doesn'e eat lox or cream cheese.

          No lox or cc for me either.
          I start with coffee, a lot of it.
          Small piece of bagel, cheese, cucumber, several glasses of water

            Every year I beg DH, no bagels and lox. Every year we try but either we end up in shul, at someone's house, or (this year) someone invites him or herself over by offering to bring the bagels. Sigh....

            But DH just made me a mushroom quiche for Sat. night. Not as good reheated but so nice of him.

            And coffee...

              A lot of orange juice and, I'm going to dare to say it - bagels and lox (please don't hate me!). And salad and fruit. I very rarely eat bagels, so I look forward to the one I have at the break fast. I also find that after the fast, I actually can't eat that much so have a light meal. (The thought of a fleishigs meal is not appealing.)

                  As it turned out, this year we put up a cholent, so the kids could have a hot lunch, and we ate the rest of it tonight.

                  Our family tradition is kuglof and hot chocolate though we also serve all the smoked fish kinda goodies too.

                    I usually make one substantial thing for post fast -- usually a pasta dish with tuna -- and expect everyone to fend for themselves otherwise. But this year I had the brilliant idea of bakling challah on friday (mitzvah, opportunity to do it w my daughter who was off from school....) and as a result ran out of time. So we grazed all nigh on prefast food and whatever else we ran into. I broke my fast on some iced decaf and a p;lum. Sounds kind of moderate and sane, right?? Well, over the course of the rest of the evening I had (I feel "The Very Hungry Caterpillar coming on...) a piece of plum cake, a piece of chicken, melon, tot tea, more iced decaf, sunflower seeds, another plum and a piece of very dark chocolate. (And that is just what I remember.)

                      I 'm not home this year, am staying with sister in a hotel in NY so our break the fast was whatever we had in our htel fridge- a collection of various leftovers from takeout places. Baked ziti, cheese omelet, Greek salad, pizza, mashed potatoes, crackers, lots of seltzer, sprinkke cookies.

                      Today I find myself still full, but guzzling cranberry juice and more seltzer to rehydrate. The day after a fast I usually go for high water content and fiber rich foods: watermelon, salad, etc. Makes me feel less lethargic.

                      My MiL made the following:

                      Quiche (broccoli and cheddar w/ a quinoa crust)
                      Strawberry soup (sugar, water, strawberries, with buttermilk just before serving)

                      We then had chocolate chip cookies with gelato (which we made into ice cream sandwiches) for dessert.
