Yom Kippur Break-the-Fast Meal Ideas
How do you plan to break the Yom Kippur fast? If you’re looking for family-friendly ways to create a post-holiday “break the fast” breakfast, check out these ideas. Even though your kiddos may not have fasted for the holiday, they can still help you to make this meal and enjoy the tasty treats!
PB and Babka
Whether your family prefers a cinnamon babka or the classic chocolate, you can dress up this beloved bread and turn it into a break-the-fast sandwich meal. Add peanut butter or another nut butter to thick slices of babka. Keep the sandwiches open-faced and dress up the tasty treat with jam, fresh raspberries or bananas.
A heavy, greasy meal isn’t likely to sit well on an empty stomach. Break the fast with a slight, but tasty, salad. Instead of a full salad, create your own buffet. Give your family choices and include a variety of lettuce types, cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumbers, sliced peppers and grilled veggies. Add in shredded cheese, croutons and a selection of dressing options.
Complete Cous Cous
Cous cous is another lighter, fresh choice for your holiday break-fast meal. Start with a plain cous cous. Mix in add-ons to create either a sweet or savory meal. If your family prefers a sweeter option, chopped dried fruit and almond slivers are options to explore. But if you would rather make a savory selection, mix in diced raw or sliced grilled veggies. Serve the cous cous either hot or cold, depending on your family’s preferences.
