Kosher Like Me Offers 30 Passover Breakfast Recipes from your Favorite Bloggers

Katy Morris

Breakfast options sure can feel scarce during Passover week.

We simply can’t eat matzah and cream cheese for eight days. Sure, it tastes great at the beginning of the week but by the second or third day we’ve had it with the crumbs. To solve the Passover breakfast dilemma we’ve turned to our favorite bloggers for a load of super recipes.

 Oatmeal lovers, granola crunchers and those who simply grab a nibble with one foot out the door – we’ve got your mornings covered this Passover!

Scroll all the way down for two Passover recipe e-books that shouldn’t be missed.

Sure, we could make it a few days without pancakes, but why would we when there are such irresistible substitutes to nosh on?! Matzo meal, farfel, mashed potatoes, potato starch, rice flour and surprisingly, a combo of bananas and almond butter form the bases of these inventive concoctions.
