Yom Kippur Break-fast Ideas

Yom Kippur Break-fast IdeasYom Kippur begins this week at sundown on Wednesday, September 15th, and ends at sundown on Thursday, September 16th. This means that the fast itself lasts 25 hours—from just before sunset on Wednesday until just after sundown on Thursday.

A break-fast is an informal meal in the evening after the Yom Kippur fast has ended. Break-fast, menus are kept light to make for an easy re-entry into eating. And, you can do some prep work in advance.

In the United States, break-fast menus tend to resemble brunch food. They tend to lean on bagels, eggs, dairy, and other carbs with maybe a little cured fish.

So, even if you’re not fasting (or not even necessarily Jewish) you might want to make a special meal in solidarity on Wednesday night. Try one of our favorite dishes for break-fast with some toasted bagels (or a good, crusty bread) served with Gina Marie Cream Cheese and fresh lox from our meat department.

Break-Fast Shashuka
What could be more delicious than a fire-red sauce with gently cooked eggs?

Baked Eggs with Spinach and Mushrooms
Here’s a wonderful and simple-to-prepare meal that you can make in one dish. It can be simplified further by picking up bagged, baby spinach, diced yellow onions, and sliced mushrooms from our produce department.

Featherbed Eggs
Featherbed Eggs are basically bread pudding with cheese, that you start the night before, and bake when you get up in the morning. So, for Yom Kippur, you could start in the morning so it has plenty of time in the fridge before dinner.

Eggs Florentine
There are so many ways to eat eggs with spinach, and this is one of our favorites. However, you may want to forego prosciutto…the dish is just as yummy.

You can assemble this delicious dish right before the fast and leave it covered in the fridge. Then, all you have to do is pop it in a warmed oven about 45 minutes before it is time to eat.

Pop these in the oven while you are making break-fast, and they will be hot out of the oven in time for dessert!
