Jojo’s Breakfast Toast: A Jojo Rabbit Inspired Recipe

The Geeks have done some research and come up with a sort of historically accurate breakfast recipe, Jojo's Breakfast Toast inspired by Jojo Rabbit. #JojoRabbit #Breakfast #BreakfastRecipes #Toast #GeekyRecipes #GeekyFoodEvery now and then we get asked to tackle a movie that stumps us. Coming up with a recipe is sometimes so easy and then sometimes so hard! Jojo Rabbit may have been one of our toughest yet. However, we were not detered, in fact we figured out one with a bit of research. We are excited to share our latest recipe, Jojo’s Breakfast Toast.

Admittedly, we didn’t really know what Jojo Rabbit was about and in doing a bit of digging we found these quotes from the director Taika Waititi,

I experienced a certain level of prejudice growing up as a Māori Jew, so making Jojo Rabbit has been a reminder, especially now, that we need to educate our kids about tolerance and continue to remind ourselves that there’s no place in this world for hate.

Children are not born with hate, they are trained to hate. I hope the humour in Jojo Rabbit helps engage a new generation; it’s important to keep finding new and inventive ways of telling the horrific story of World War II again and again for new generations, so that our children can listen, learn, and move forward, unified into the future.”

We feel this explains the movie better than any synopsis can. However, for those curious about the official synopsis here it is:

Jojo is a lonely German boy who discovers that his single mother is hiding a Jewish girl in their attic. Aided only by his imaginary friend — Adolf Hitler — Jojo must confront his blind nationalism as World War II continues to rage on.”

The Geeks have done some research and come up with a sort of historically accurate breakfast recipe, Jojo's Breakfast Toast inspired by Jojo Rabbit. #JojoRabbit #Breakfast #BreakfastRecipes #Toast #GeekyRecipes #GeekyFoodIn coming up with this recipe, we looked back to the time period to see what would have been served for breakfast in World War 2 Germany. We discovered a Smithsonian article with this quote,

Breakfast and supper at our house usually consisted of bread and marmalade or evil-tasting margarine.”
Using that inspiration we added a more modern flair and used both. The result, much like the movie, is a somewhat, but not really, accurate depiction of a breakfast from the period.
