It's a CafeMom Passover Potluck - What Will You Bring?

Posted by   + Show Post

So the guest list is set. Once you know the "who," the next most important part of the seder is the "what" - what we eat, of course! Certain traditional and symbolic foods are a part of every family's seder (you can learn more about them here), but every family has their own special favorite dishes to serve for the meal itself.

Some of my personal favorites are matzo kugel, mina (a lasagna-like casserole using matzo instead of noddles), my mom's beef brisket and, of course, matzo ball soup!


What do you serve at your seder? Or what would you want to try at someone else's seder (or what dish would you bring as a guest), if you don't celebrate the holiday? Share all your recipes (and pictures!) here, keeping in mind the dietary restrictions of the holiday: staples like bread, pasta, rice, beans, corn, and more are all forbidden. One lucky member who responds to this thread will win a CafeMom tote bag!

The CafeMom Passover Potluck Sweepstakes starts 4/5/12 at 10:45am (ET) and ends 4/8/2012 at 11:59pm (ET) (the "Sweepstakes Period").

Enter by replying to this post with an appropriate comment during the Sweepstakes Period. Multiple entries are permitted and encouraged, as it increases your chances of winning. One (1) winner will be selected in a random drawing of all eligible entries to receive a CafeMom tote bag (valued at $5).  The random drawing shall occur on or about 4/9/12.

*No Purchase Necessary. Open to US residents 16 years and older. Void where prohibited. Click here for the rest of the Official Rules.

Yup. She used ground up chicken and made it look the same. Than she would somehow make the broth gel up and put a slice of boiled carrot on top of each one. Yuuuuummmmmmmm

Quoting sourflower:

 Me too! I can't bring myself to eat the Gelfilte fish either.


Quoting Roo1234:


gefilte chicken?  (I am SOOOOO curious)


Quoting poshkat:

My mom used to make cow tongue, chopped liver, gafilta chicken (because I hate fish!!!) And various other things.
