10 days ago was the start of a holiday called Rosh Hashanah. It’s the Jewish New Year and a day of celebrating. Then, there are 10 days until the next holiday, called Yom Kippur. During those 10 days, you’re supposed to ask anyone you’ve wronged in the past year for forgiveness. It culminates on Yom Kippur where you fast from sundown to sundown and break the fast with something easy to eat.
In our family, we used to break the fast with breakfast. It’s easy to eat and everyone loves it. So, I’m carrying on that tradition of eating breakfast for the break-fast with my girls! And honestly, I think they could eat this for dinner everyday! They think the concept of breakfast for dinner is amazing. I really can’t blame them, can you?! 🙂
This year, I added in some more muffiny sweets because who doesn’t love a good muffin! Some chocolate and some coffee cake. I think the later was my favorite though!
What’s your favorite thing on the board? Tell me in the comments below! Happy holidays!
Breaking-the-Fast Breakfast Board
- Variety of spreads (cream cheese, butter, etc…)
- Variety of bagels (any kind)
- Variety of protein (bacon (turkey or pork), lox, scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs, etc…)
- Variety of fresh fruit (strawberries, grapes, etc…)
- Filler (nuts, dried fruit, muffins, etc..)
- Start by placing any spreads you have on any kind of platter or serving plate you have in small bowls. Next, arrange the bagels, protein, fruit around the pots of appetizing. Fill in any holes with your fillers of choice. Top with some seasoning (like everything but the bagel), fresh herbs or flowers for a finishing touch, if desired. Enjoy!
