Fried Matzo Brei
Matzo Brie is classic Jewish food for Passover made with matzo, eggs, and butter. Easily customizable to serve as either a sweet or savory meal.
matzo brei, Passover
you will only use 1/2-3/4 of the box
Break 1/2 – 3/4 box of matzah into small pieces
Soak in water for 1 minute. Drain well
Mix with 2-3 eggs
Melt a small pad of butter on pan
Add matzah and make a big pancake – cook on medium high heat
Let cook for a few minutes (I like to press down with my spatula to get it crispy)
Cut into quarters and put a pad of butter on each quarter and flip over
Add some salt (if desired)
Let cook for a few minutes (if you want it really crispy, just add additional butter as you cook it)
Using spatula, break into small pieces
Add a little more butter and let cook and crisp up, stirring occasionally.
Serve with salt, butter, sugar, syrup (whatever you choose!)
Save leftovers and reheat – they reheat great!!
Store any leftover Matzo Brei covered in the refrigerator for 1-2 days.
You can reheat any leftovers in a fry pan or in the microwave until hot.
You can use olive oil instead of butter.
I like to break the matzo pieces into a strainer set over a bowl so I catch all the tiny crumbs. They make the texture more interesting.
You can easily make one batch at a time, to satisfy both sweet and savory lovers.
