We've rounded up Food Network's top-five Passover picks to help you pull off an entire meal — complete with casual drinks, showstopping main dishes, a sweet-tooth-satisfying dessert and everything in between — with ease. Check out our favorite recipes below, then tell us in the comments what meals your family will be enjoying this Passover.

5. Flourless Walnut-Date Cake — Rich and indulgent, Food Network Magazine's fuss-free cake boasts a smooth glaze of bittersweet chocolate and honey, and, best of all, it an be ready to enjoy in less than one hour.

4. Spiced Tea Punch — If you're hosting young guests this holiday, leave out the rum from this light, fruity sipper, made with apple spice tea, bright orange juice and bubbly ginger ale, and garnished with a fragrant cinnamon stick.

3. Roasted Carrots With Za'atar — Instead of roasting carrots with everyday salt and pepper alone, try adding a few pinches of za'atar, a Middle Eastern spice blend featuring oregano, thyme and sumac, to transform the vegetables into an extra-special side dish.

2. Matzo Ball Soup (pictured above) — The secret to making this recipe successfully is letting the matzo ball dough chill before rolling it into rounds and adding it to the broth; this will help the balls keep their shape while cooking.

1. Beef Brisket* — A big-batch main dish brimming with bold flavors, Tyler's five-star brisket is rubbed with a garlic-rosemary paste, then slowly roasted with root vegetables until it's deliciously moist and tender. Watch the video below to see how he makes it.
