Yom Kippur Recipes

What's a holiday without traditional, delish-ional recipes? Don't let the fact that it's forbidden to eat food on Yom Kippur interfere with your culinary enjoyment of this most solumn of all Jewish days.

1. Nothing
You’ll need: mixing bowl, flour, baking pan

- Mix a heaping portion of nothing in the mixing bowl. Let sit for 15 minutes.
- Pour into baking pan.
- I guess you didn't end up needing the flour after all
Feeds: Nobody

2. The Smell of Hamburgers
You'll need: lean hamburger meat, cast iron skillet, cooking oil

- Form hamburger meat into several large patties, about a quarter of an inch thick. (hint: If you have a local butcher, the meat will be of a much better quality than you'll find in a grocery store!)
- Set your stove to it's highest setting. Lightly coat the bottom of the skillet with oil (wear a glove, the oil will get HOT)
- Now put your hamburger meat in the skillet and let it cook for 5-7 minutes, flipping once.
- Transfer the patties and smell. The tiny molecules of hamburger meat entering your nostrils are not technically violating the fast.

Feeds: an infinite number of people.

3. Pizza
You'll need: the number of a pizza delivery service, $10

- Dial the number of the pizza delivery service.
- Sit on your ass 20-35 minutes.
- Eat the pizza
