I may or may not have posted this before (I am having senior moments a lot, these days), but if I haven’t, here is a side dish my family and friends always beg me to make. It is non-gebrokts, and has only a few ingredients.
Take 2 large onions, dice them and saute them together with 8 oz. of fresh or canned mushrooms until the onions are wilted and golden brown, and the mushrooms are browned. Drain off the oil, cool the onions/mushrooms slightly, then mix together with a 1/2 cup of mayonnaise, 1- 1 1/2 tsp. salt, a gezunteh shake of black pepper, and 5 eggs. Pour into a 9″ square non-stick sprayed pan, and bake at 350 degrees until the top is golden brown and feels springy to the touch. When it is not Pesach, I make this recipe either as I just posted, or occasionally turn it into a quiche by pouring it into an unbaked pie shell before baking it. Personally I don’t need the starch, so I most often make it without the pie shell. The smell of your kitchen while this is being made, is incredible.March 26, 2012 4:39 am at 4:39 am #865966always hereParticipant
thanks oomis! I already copied & pasted your yumm-o sounding recipe over to my daughter 🙂March 26, 2012 4:51 am at 4:51 am #865967dash™Participant
Mods: Why is there no section for Gebrukts recipes? I eat Gebrukts but my Minhag is not to eat mushrooms so I’d like a non-mushroom section.March 26, 2012 5:12 am at 5:12 am #865968
Oh sister! I dont eat mushroooms, garlic or gebrokts.March 26, 2012 7:06 am at 7:06 am #865969commonsenseParticipant
Oomis, sounds delicious.
Dash, start your own.
Medium, this recipe doesn’t call for garlic, is not gebrokes and I would try to substitute a different veggie for mushrooms if i did not use mushrooms. Try zuccini. also if u don’t use mushrooms because they are not peeled, u can use fresh and peel them.March 26, 2012 7:29 am at 7:29 am #865970yaff80Participant
For an entree, fry some onions, when they are a golden colour add eggs and pieces of liver, with a good sprinkiling of salt.
Its basically a hot version of egg/liver and onion, but is heaven.

You can try making a truly edible seder plate, if you don’t mind bending tradition a bit. My favorites are pickled beets and herbed egg salad, or deviled egg, or mini omelette for the egg and bone, and pear mint charoses, that actually gets eaten. If you don’t like the vegetarian way the beets can be substituted by say, cubed corned beef. Make it colorful, abundant, and inviting so that people starving ( or thinking that they are starving) during Magid can nosh away their angst.March 26, 2012 6:32 pm at 6:32 pm #865972oomisParticipant
For those who do not eat mushrooms (the garlic avoidance I never heard of before, and this IS a non-gebrokts, gluten-friendly recipe), you can easily substitute broccoli, maybe tomato, squash or make it with additional onions. I would even consider trying to do a scallopped potato variation, layering thin slices of raw potatoes with the onion batter. I never tried this, but I always think of these ideas when I have a basic recipe for something else.
And boy, is it EVER a yummy kugel. I wish I had a nickel for every person, men included (who supposedly don’t eat quiche, crustless or otherwise) who asked for this recipe. It is the one item at my table that NEVER has a scrap left over.April 5, 2012 3:43 am at 3:43 am #865973
Have I missed anything here as far as Main Dish ideas for the Seder? Is everyone eating boiled chicken?
