Matzo Brei - Happy Passover!

I love matzo, as does my hubby. So when the local A&P offers free matzoh (an unleavened bread) weekly with purchase, we grab it up into the cart. Also, as friends know, I love to teach Gabriel about other cultures & religions. On Passover, observers of the Jewish faith fast from anything leavened for 8 days in commemoration of Exodus, when the ancient Israelites were freed from slavery in Northern Egypt.  Matzo looks like a giant cracker. It's delicious with just butter or jam, or peanut butter & jelly. Actually, anything you'd eat on bread or crackers.

Matzo brei is a yummy breakfast of eggs mixed with matzo. The name literally means "fried matzo" in Hebrew.
Kosher for Passover goodness.

Matzo Brei
  • Canola Oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 pieces of Matzo
  • Kosher Salt
Take the matzo & break it up into pieces in a bowl. Cover the matzo pieces with water & allow it to get just wet enough- about one minute. Drain the water but leave the matzo pieces in the bowl. 

Scrambled the eggs in a separate bowl & add the salt. Pour eggs over the matzoh. 

Heat the canola oil in a non-stick pan on Medium high. Add the matzoh mix. Carefully stir the eggs until cooked (your preference) and the matzoh has a golden edge. Serve & enjoy!

*Lishie tip- Add smoked salmon, "lox", or onions for extra yum.
*Perrie tip- As per her friend's mom- add a touch of yummy with a pinch of cinnamon. YUM
