Break Fast Recipes That Hit The Spot
Pumpkin Banana Chocolate Chip Bread (Shannon Sarna)
(JTA) — For many families, the Yom Kippur break-fast is a bagels and schmear-filled inevitability — just add some lox, maybe some slices of tomato and orange juice, and everyone is happy.
For other families, the break-fast is one of the most important meals of the year — almost sacred. Expectations can run high with such a special meal, and I know many people who anticipate the same dishes year after year after year.
But what if you want to serve something a little more than just bagels, or veer a little off course from your usual blintz soufflé? These three newish dishes are just different enough to be exciting, yet they are similar enough to satisfy your family’s biggest critic.
Simple banana bread is hard to improve upon, but when you add chocolate chips and moist (and healthy) canned pumpkin, you have a crowd-pleasing quick bread you can bake one or two days ahead of time.
Quiche is one of the easiest make-ahead comfort foods, and this version is brightened with fresh herbs, feta cheese and lemon zest.
Fresh fruit is also standard at break-fast meals. But by adding some cinnamon and candied walnuts to autumn fruit, you can take something simple and traditional and make it extraordinary.
