Shabbat Menu: Southern Style

When I think of Southern food, the first words that come to mind are “Comfort Food.”

I didn’t grow up eating Southern food, and as a result, I don’t think I’ve ever actually made it. Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against it, it’s just not my ‘go-to’ way of cooking.

When I was putting together this email, a lot of the recipes caught my eye. They all sound really delicious and different (especially those Maple Ribs…yum!)

Every once in a while I like to try cooking an entirely different style and cuisine that I’m not used to. These recipes are definitely getting added to the menu when I make a Southern-themed Shabbat!

Try stepping out of your Shabbat comfort zone and give these a try!

Happy cooking!


Southwestern Chicken Salad by Brynie Greisman

This salad is literally bursting with flavor and texture in each bite. It can be an appetizer, a salad, or even a light main dish. It’s magnificent served layered in a trifle bowl.

Oven-Fried Chicken Fingers by Tanya Rosen

A healthier version of a classic. These oven-fried chicken fingers are crispy, crunchy, and full of flavor!

Maple Mustard Beef Ribs by Elizabeth Kurtz

Sweet and savory ribs are a huge fan favorite and perfect for a special Shabbos meal or cold winter night.

Corn Muffins by Manischewitz

These sweet and savory corn muffins are a Southern classic. Serve them as an appetizer or side dish and your guests will be wowed!

Peach and Cherry Cobbler by Rivky Kleiman

This cobbler uses summer’s bounty to its fullest. Tossing the fruit with maple and cinnamon add a subtle sweetness.
