Breakfast. Mothers, nutritionists, and teachers alike tell us that it's the most important meal of the day, and we Jews have a handful of unique breakfast dishes all our own. Have a killer recipe for one of the dishes listed? Share it in comments, below.

Matzo Brei: It certainly isn't a visually pleasing dish, but don't let that dissuade you. Matzo Brei combines crumbled matzo and scrambled eggs in what has become a filling, satisfying, Passover breakfast food.
Bagels: Easily the most popular Jewish contribution to breakfast, everyone loves a bagel–especially when it's slathered with the traditional cream cheese and lox.
Shakshuka: This popular Israeli egg dish, which translates to "all mixed up," is made with tomatoes, onions, and lots of spices.
Blintzes: Whether filled with cheese or fruit, blintzes are always a sweetly satisfying way to start the day.

LEO (Lox, Eggs, and Onions): A deli favorite, Sam the Cooking Guy calls it a "Jewish classic" and offers his own recipe up on his site. If you love eggs and salt, this is your dish.
