Passover Picks: What to Serve at the Seder

My husband is Jewish, yet we've never, ever had a Seder in the entire time we've been together. We celebrate Hanukkah with wild lattke abandon, but not a year has passed when we ask the youngest person at the table,"Why is this night different from all other nights?"

Needless to say I couldn't rely on him for some great recipes for a Seder. Instead, I searched the world wide web and found some delicious options for your table. Passover begins at sundown tonight, so grab your matzo and start cooking now!


First things first, The Kitchn teaches you how to create a kosher kitchen. Something that makes me glad my husband is only kinda' Jewish. I'm lucky if I can organize one set of dishes.


Any recipe that has the word "Grandma" in it, is a winner for me. Chow's Grandma Irma's "California" Brisket Recipe is fast and easy while still having some surprise ingredients.

Gefilte Fish Three Ways

While I can't quite stomach the gefilte fish, if you want to dress it up a bit, Gourmania offers a recipe for Gefilte Fish Patties in Tomato Sauce, as well as two other more traditional options.

Branzino and Roasted Baby Vegetables with Tarragon-Chive Oil

Epicurious gives us roasted vegetables with the bitter herb with this amazing looking recipe for Branzino and Roasted Baby Vegetables with Tarragon-Chive Oil.

Matzo Brei

We were brunching with friends this morning when one spoke of "matzo brei" so lovingly I decide I had to find out what it was and whip it up immediately. Words To Eat By has not only an easy recipe, but a drool-worthy narrative that has me convinced matzo brei is the end all be all. (She also has a thorough collection of Passover recipes if you're seeking more inspiration.)

Happy eating!
