When I was younger, I thought Passover was a huge ordeal–no bread for eight days might as well have been the equivalent today of 24 hours without Internet. As I’ve gotten older I haven’t found it as hard–I basically just eat a fair amount of meat, salad, and potatoes to stay full.
But that doesn’t solve the most important meal of the day: Breakfast.
On the weekend this really isn’t too bad because you can just make an omelet, fritata or any number of egg based dishes that are both filling, delicious and bread free. But what about that harried weekday morning? I usually eat cereal, which is now off limits (the kosher for Passover stuff might be one of the nastiest foods you can buy in a grocery store). I usually end up settling for matzo and butter. Not the greatest, but it gets the job done.
But there must be something better. What do you eat for weekeday morning Passover breakfast? And keep in mind things that are quick and don’t require much cooking (I’m usually in a rush and eat breakfast at work).
