There seems to be an egg crisis. Supermarkets are out of eggs and as soon as the eggs are restocked they’re gone in a flash. Cries of panicked ‘Where can I find eggs? Does XYZ grocery have eggs? WHO HAS EGGS? are heard. If you are one of the concerned then this article is for you!
Here’s our family menu for the next week to give some food for thought (no pun intended) to show there are PLENTY OF OTHER OPTIONS TO EAT BESIDES EGGS. You will notice that there are eggs on my menu but no recipe has more than three eggs and many don’t need at all.
I highly recommend checking out Elana’s Pantry has great recipes for all year round for all kinds of special diets ranging from low-carb to nut-free to keto to candida to egg-free. Elana even has a category for Passover desserts!
Wednesday Night/Yom Tov Night

Apple Kugel (2 eggs needed)

Plain Chicken (some of the kids won’t eat anything in a sauce)
matzah pizza, tuna, deli, baked potatoes, french fries, sweet potato fries, turkey breast, fruit & veggies
yogurt, cottage cheese, matzah, and cream cheese, fruit, fruit smoothies
fruit, dried fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, potato chips, cookies, potato crackers, chocolate-raisin-nut “trail mix”
eggs: scrambled, hard-boiled, in matzah brei
Some of my kids are very “selective” eaters (aka picky) and one can’t have dairy so you may notice the options are limited, not because of lack of ideas but this is what my brood will eat.
Also, note that the menu is subject to change depending on the availability of items. I don’t go overboard with side dishes and we make a cake for dessert from one of the pre-made mixes.
Wishing everyone a healthy and chag kasher v’samech.
