Menu Planning: Leftover Challah

Menu Planning: Leftover Challah

After all the holidays, we had a bunch of challot that we froze. Normally we put all the challah and bread ends in a bag in the freezer and then as needed make breadcrumbs out of the leftovers. But this year, I made some very large chocolate chip challot and I didn’t think those would work so well. So I was looking for ideas of what you could do with challot.

We make our challot pareve and our challah boards and knives are pareve. But I realize that some people make their challot in fleish ovens or fleish vessels. There are a couple of fleish or pareve recipes below, but most of these are dairy and call for milk or creamers. For some of them you might be able to substitute a pareve milk product like Soy, Almond, or Cashew.

Let me know if you have any good ideas.

Amazon | BEST PRICE: Koren Rav Kook Siddur (Ashkenaz)

The Koren Rav Kook Siddur is an exciting new prayer-book that offers a dimension of spirituality sorely lacking in our world today. Abraham Isaac Hakohen Kook (1865-1935), first Ashkenazic Chief Rabbi of Eretz Israel, was renowned for his harmonious blending of both the body and the soul of the Torah, as represented in the Halakhah and Aggadah.
Culled from Rav Kook’s own commentary to the Siddur, ‘Olat Re’iyah, and other writings of the master, as well as rich anecdotes transmitted by Rav Kook’s son and major disciples, The Koren Rav Kook Siddur speaks to the soul, while it connects us all to the sacred soil of the Holy Land.
The Siddur includes Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks’ immensely popular English translation, while it features a digest of Rav Kook’s commentary, never before seen in English. The work includes an introduction about Rav Kook’s overall philosophy of prayer, adapted by Rabbi Bezalel Naor, acknowledged interpreter of Rav Kook’s thought.
