For all those suggesting roasted veggies , do you cook in advance and then warm up ? Because for me it’s only appetizing baked fresh

Ever
Any ideas ?
Also for baking & desserts.
I want to keep it easy & basic but don’t want to disappoint my kids & grandkids coming

Any tips or ideas welcome
Thx


Seder nights if I don't have company and it's just our family I just serve chicken soup. Huge bowls, with lots of chicken and veggies and egg "lokshen". Couldn't be more simple and everyone loves it. We find it too late to eat such heavy foods anyhow.

We eat gebrokts so I make lots of dips that we eat with matza!!!

Otherwise the usual:
Meatballs, chicken on the bone, shnitzel, chicken stir fries, roast/brisket

Roasted potatoes,sweet potatoes and other veggies.
Potato kugel,brocoli kugel

I like to start the meal with salads:
Cole slaw, cucumbers, shredded carrots, lettuce, pepper salad, red cabbage....

Soups are chicken soup, mushrooms, zuchinis, brocoli, vegetables, minestrone (minus pasta or beans)

I make mini sweet potato "pies" in little foil ramekins. No crust and they are very popular especially with the kids.

I find that in general anything made in little portion cups or ramekins is more desirable, like mini kugels vs a slice of kugel. So I spend an extra few minutes putting the kugel batter into little foil pans instead of into one big pan. It's also easy to serve or take as a snack.

I also keep a big bag of hard boiled eggs in the fridge for anyone who is hungry.

Like the poster above, I also make ices in mini portion cups. I make lemon italian ices with strong lemonade, grape juice ices (watered down grape juice with sugar added), and frozen applesauce. Having lots of those on hand for whenever anyone needs a snack or treat is great.

Every morning I cut up a few melons or other fruit and leave the chunks in the fridge for people to take.

I make a lot of simple food. We don't use too many ingredients on Pesach so that's what works...

A big pot of chicken soup with tons of vegetables, and sometimes chicken balls (ground dark meat, just make little balls with wet hands and toss into boiling soup) is helpful to have on hand.

I prefer easy salads like cucumber salad, avocado salad.

Fish patties (just make small balls of defrosted fish roll with wet hands and flatten onto parchment paper) are delicious and very popular.


The chicken balls taste good with nothing in them ? How do they stay together ?

No recipe
If you like sweet salads: oil, vinegar, sugar and a bit of pepper
If you dont: oil, vinegar,salt ,pepper and a garlic cube.
If you use frozen dill cubes, put some in cucumber salad it's delicious!
If you like mayonnaise (some of my family don't touch it!) For Cole slaw 1c mayonnaise ,1/2c lemon juice and 1/2c sugar

They do taste good. They were not amazing prize winning but my kids (and me) enjoyed them. They absorb salt from the soup so they are not bland.

My guess is that the higher fat content of the dark meat is what keeps them together with nothing added.

Easiest dessert, baked apples.

Don't even have to peel apples.

Optional: core apples and stuff with Chopped walnuts and brown sugar for a yummy topping.

Hack

SAute tons of onions and freeze in small bags.

Great to add to potatoes, soups, quinoa, roast veggies, etc.

I heard some saite onions in the oven or crockpot overnight.
