Matzoh is not just for Passover anymore. And it’s not just for Jews. I should have posted this months ago during Passover when I made coconut macaroons, but this afternoon I knew there was nothing I wanted to eat more than matzoh brei.
Matzoh brei can be compared to a pancake, as it is cooked on a griddle and can be eaten with syrup. Because of this, it is often a staple for Passover when bread and yeast products are prohibited. I learned this recipe from my grandfather who would make it year round for breakfast whenever we would go to visit him. The simplicity of the process and few ingredients needed made it a perfect segway for me to make it at home as a child just getting interested in food.
INGREDIENTS: (makes 2 servings)
2 pieces of Matzoh
1 egg, beaten
1 tbs butter
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Preheat a skillet on medium heat.
2. Rinse matzoh pieces in warm water until soggy. Break into small pieces and place in a bowl. Add the beaten egg to the matzoh and stir to coat. Mix in salt and pepper to taste.
3. Melt butter on skillet. Pour matzoh mixture into skillet and flatten until rounded and desired thickness throughout. Cook 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve with salt and pepper or syrup.
Tell me what you think. Enjoy!
