An interesting aspect to keeping Shabbat, is that every Shabbat dinner is like the once a year thanksgiving feast that most Americans discuss and plan for weeks in advance. Every week, Jewish men and women cook up a storm to celebrate Shabbat with food, family and friends. Listed below is a step by step guide to help you create a great tasting, and quick Shabbat dinner for eight. Keep in mind that the two and ½ hours include prep work and cooking time too. These recipes aren’t only for Shabbat; you can use the recipes for any occasion.

  1. Love how you put this post together! Making 2 meals at the same time can sometimes get really stressful…and the recipes on the menu are incredible. Really loving the deli roll pockets and caramelized chicken.

  2. I feel like I’m on Top Chef every erev Shabbos, especially the short ones (I always wait til the last minute!) Love the menus, they look delish!

    The recipes look great. I am surprised, however, that you would serve ice cream with a meat meal. (apple crisp with ice ceam)

  4. I tryed your 2 Shabbos meals in 2 1/2 hours, and this is how far I got. Also, I allowed myself 3 hours…as I wanted to make sure and have time to shower. I moved as fast as possible! I would love to see how you actually did it, as I did not even pause for a second. Maybe you have someone who preps all your veggies, for the soup, fish, cholent, etc.? I had to do that myself.

    • Lol, nice to see you were up for the challenge.

      I actually do stand behind this timeline and did in fact manage to complete it all with prep but my husband has told me he doesnt think many people could do it at that speed.
