What’s for dinner? Hopefully something really fast, easy to make, and with familiar flavors. Especially during Passover when we can’t have foods we’re used to even I need some inspiration. Here are some of my favorite Passover weeknight dinners.
Having foods that are familiar is key to having a successful Passover week. Chicken fingers covered in potato chips are such a fun twist on a food that everyone will love. Serving it with a variety of dipping sauces will customize it to everyone’s tastes.

Taco Tuesday may have to be put on hold during Passover, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy Mexican flavors. This fajita recipe is one of my all time favorites. Serve it over mashed potatoes or if you’re eating kitniyot over rice.

Soup is always the best and matzah ball soup is not the only option during Passover. Potato soup is super easy to make, just sauté some onions, cook your potatoes in stock, and stir in cream cheese. Then let everyone top it as they please. I love adding broccoli to mine, the kids often prefer handfuls of cheese. Creating matzo croutons for topping or dipping adds another interactive element.

It wouldn’t be Passover if you didn’t make matzo pizza (at least once, but probably a lot). My kids and I make our own pizzas all the time. My challenge will be how to make a fancy version for myself. I’ll also be surprising them with ingredients for dessert matzo pizza. My kids are huge nutellla fans and I’m sure they’ll want some sprinkles on there too.

Manischewitz Tam Tam Crackers are a Passover staple in our house. I love that these tuna melts have super simple ingredients and are finger food. Perfect for a snack-y dinner during a family game night.

Making a dinner that is a Passover version of Italian flavors take a little creativity. I love this salmon recipe because you can use store-bought salmon. It’s also a super versatile way to make dinner because you can top each piece of salmon to fit each family member’s tastes. Creating bruschetta with on matzo is a nice fresh way of eating matzo. It’s always good to change it up, especially as the week goes on.
