Yom Kippur Break-Fast

Yom Kippur Break-FastYom Kippur begins at sundown on Tuesday, September 18 and ends at sundown on Wednesday, September 19. So, the fast itself lasts 25 hours—from just before sunset on September 18 until just after sundown on September 19.

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 eggs, dairy, and 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 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.
