26 Classic Passover Recipes

Perfect Matzo Balls

"What a great recipe! After we tasted the dish, it immediately became a family favorite."


Salmon With Matzo Crust

A perfectly crunchy coating for a salmon fillet.

Unleavened Bread for Passover

"This is very easy and very good! Cook it longer if you want the traditional cracker consistency. I took it to school for a report about Passover and everyone liked it!"



"I was impressed at how hearty this soup was, even without meat."


Lacy Potato Kugel

"I have made this recipe for Passover and high holidays for several years. It is a delicious if somewhat labor intensive kugel."

"This kugel was OUTSTANDING!! It surpassed all of my expectations."


Horseradish Crusted Roasted Potatoes

Flourless Chocolate Cake

"So easy and so good! A chocolate fix and then some! This is definitely a keeper."


Chicken Marbella

"Fabulous. What more can I say? It's an absolute perfect dish for entertaining."


Matzo Cake

"Great tasting, easy recipe! My biggest problem was not with the recipe but with the matzos as they were broken in the box. I was finally able to make one rectangle cake. This cake was 3"x3.5" by 6 matzos levels high filled with the chocolate goodness. I could see layering it with Nutella or a chocolate peanut butter filling."


Horseradish-Glazed Brisket

The veggies are cooked with the brisket, so everything takes on a deep, slow-cooked flavor.

3-Ingredient Chewy Macaroons

"EVERYONE who eats these LOVES them!!! I am not a baker, but even I can't screw these up. So easy, so yummy, and they look a little fancy, too."


Flourless Hazelnut Chocolate Cake

"Baking with coconut sugar and hazelnuts was new for me, and I loved this dessert."


Passover Cookies

"These cookies were really great, and well-received. Exactly what I was looking for to bring to the Seder."


Chocolate Covered Toffee Matzo

"You have to try this with mint chocolate chips! It's a wonderful kid-pleaser."


Matzo Lasagna


-Leah K.


"I made this and thought it was great! Natural ingredients and very simple."


Meringue Cookies

"I was craving something a little sweet and the bite-size nature of these are perfect for an occasional treat."

-Mommy Greenest

Matzo Brei With Creamed Spinach

"This is delicious! Make sure to get your matzo really crispy — it makes all the difference."


Gefilte Fish

"Tastes just like the fish I ate when I was growing up."


Matza Brie

"This is what I remember from my childhood. The instructions are clear, and it came out exactly right."


Coconut Macaroons

"These are delicious. I sometimes make them with half sweetened and half unsweetened coconut. When I make them with all sweetened coconut I grate the zest of one lemon into the mixture and this is everyone’s favorite. I also always dip them in dark chocolate. How can you go wrong? Off to make another batch. Glad to hear they freeze well."

-Linda L.

Matzo Apple Kugel (Passover)

"This is definitely on the sweet end of the Passover kugel spectrum, but very delicious. The recipe appealed to me because it had far fewer steps and ingredients than comparable kugels. It came out looking beautiful (the cinnamon was a nice touch!)."


Passover Granola

"This is a fantastic recipe. Every year I struggle to find a breakfast cereal and/or snack for the family. It is a winner. Very addictive. I have to make double batches to keep up with the family."


Scacchi (Mediterranean Passover "Lasagna")

"This traditional Sephardic Passover main course uses leaven-free matzo in place of regular lasagna noodles, and has a delicious meat and spinach/mushroom filling."

-Sephardi Kitchen

Passover Cottage Cheese Cake

"I've made this two years running and it's a very popular dessert - sweet yet refreshing and smooth in texture. Holds its shape beautifully if cooled in the oven as directed. Thanks for posting this!"
