Passover Menu Plan 2017

With less than a week until Passover, I have finally put pen to paper (technically fingers to keyboard) and come up with a menu plan for Pesach.

I like to plan out the whole week in advance, not because I’m super organization, but because that’s the only way I can get all my shopping (or at least most of it) done before yomtov starts.

Monday, April 10th – Leil HaSeder #1

  • Breakfast: Scrambled eggs, smoothies
  • Lunch: Potatoes & cottage cheese (we have the same thing every year erev chag!)
  • Dinner: Out for the first seder, we are bringing: sweet & sour meatballs, potato kugel, roasted veggies

Tuesday, April 11th – Seder #2

Breakfast: Matza Brei, Fruit, Yogurt

Lunch: Out at friends

Dinner: Seder at home

Wednesday, April 12th 

Breakfast: matzah & cream cheese, OJ

Lunch:Make-your-own salad bar, with lots of different chopped veggies, nuts, avocado and grilled chicken breasts plus homemade “ranch” dressing.

Dinner: Matzah pizza

Thursday, April 13th

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs, fruit

Lunch: It’s our one day of chol ha’moed so we’ll go the zoo or hiking, weather permitting, so I will bring picnic-y foods with me in a cooler chest.

Dinner: Matzah lasagna & zoodles

Friday, April 14th

Breakfast: Matzah brie

Lunch: ? (I’m not sure if we’ll be out & about or staying home – lunch will be flexible, depending on our plans)

Dinner: Chicken soup with matzah balls, Spicy Chicken Bake, cauliflower rice, roasted broccoli, chocolate cookies

Saturday, April 15th

Breakfast: Matzah & cream cheese, egg salad with homemade mayo, fruit

Lunch: Out at friends

Dinner: FFYS (Fend for yourself 😉 )

Sunday, April 16th (EREV YOM TOV AGAIN!)

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs, fruit

Lunch: ? (I’m not sure if we’ll be out & about or staying home – lunch will be flexible, depending on our plans)

Dinner: Unstuffed cabbage (made on the stove top, not in the crockpot), mashed cauliflower, roasted Brussels sprouts, Matzah “crack”

Monday, April 17th

Breakfast: Matzah Brie and/or yogurt with fruit

Lunch: Some kind of soup (maybe – if I feel like it!), brisket (we tweak this recipe for Pesach), mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus, green salad, Lemon Strawberry Sorbet

Dinner: Ummmmmm, left-overs?

Tuesday, April 18th

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs, matzah with cream cheese, fruit

Lunch: BBQ with all the kosher l’Pesach fixins’

Dinner: FFYS!

Snacks: I’ll make sure to have plenty of fruits, veggies and nuts on hand. And I will no doubt make a few batches of chocolate covered marshmallow clusters — and some nut & raisin clusters, too, because they’re “healthy” ;-).

Picky eaters: As we’ve talked about before, I am blessed with two adventuresome eaters and one, um, particular eater. I’ll make sure to have plenty of matzah pizza fixings on-hand, as well as hard-boiled eggs, fresh fruit and some raw veggies.

Tell me, what’s on your plan for meals this Pesach?!

What’s on your Passover menu? Any traditional favorites that make the list year in and year out? Please share below – I know we all need more inspiration!



  1. Thanks so much for the day by day menu plans! I don’t cook much and we are stuck in a rut, pesach or not. My bf and I are also picky eaters and don’t plan much in advance. Horrible eating habits for two middle aged people, really. We eat meat- kosher- but I dislike many veggies. It’s so helpful to see what someone else plans- a lot of eggs and matzah Brie!! I think I’m going to do try to do the same.

      My boys and husband LOVE matzah brie. I feel like once a year is plenty, but they could eat it three meals a day for the whole week!

  2. I would love to have your sweet and sour meatball recipe. Thank you!

  3. Sheila Lerner says

    What kind of kosher vegetable can I make for the Seder

  4. To get us through the days just before Pesach and to have something filling on hand, I make and freeze a bunch of Shephard’s Pies – for the kids just cooked burger meat (beef or turkey) mixed with some jarred pizza or marinara sauce for flavor the bottom, and mashed potatoes with margerine on the top, topped with a little more marinara and baked for about a half hour.
