Matzo Brei is a traditional Passover dish, generally served for breakfast or brunch. Serve this with sour cream or applesauce. For Sweet Matzo Brei, substitute honey and ground cinnamon for the chopped onion and ground black pepper.

Ingredients:

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • Salt and ground pepper, to taste
  • 4 matzos (6-inch square each)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons margarine or butter, divided
  • Sour cream or applesauce (optional)

Directions:

BEAT eggs and evaporated milk in medium bowl. Add onions; mix well. Season with salt and black pepper. Crumble matzos into large pieces into colander. Run water through matzos until slightly absorbed. Press down on matzos to get rid of excess water. Add matzos to egg mixture; mix well.

MELT 1 tablespoon margarine in large, non-stick skillet over medium heat. Pour 1/4 cup matzo mixture onto hot skillet. Brown on one side, about 1 to 2 minutes. Turn and continue browning on other side. Repeat with remaining matzo mixture, using additional margarine, if necessary. Serve immediately. Top with sour cream or applesauce, if desired.

NOTE: For Sweet Matzo Brei, substitute 1 tablespoon honey and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon for chopped onion and ground black pepper. Serve with Delicious Pumpkin Apple Butter (link to recipe) or maple syrup, if desired.

    Matza Brie

    Ree Kamenitz from FREEHOLD, NJ

    I never used any kind of milk w/ my Matza Brie, and also use equal eggs to Matza. I soak my matza first, not just run water over it, this way u do not need milk. But I want to try it this way & see how it comes out. Interesting twist on a very old recipe. When my family likes it sweet, we use powdered sugar, cinnamon & fruit, syrup optional sort of like French toast---YUMMY!

    I thought they were tasty, but not quite what I had expected. I thought they would have a little more zip to them, but dipped in the sour cream they were pretty good.

    Really Delicious

    My family enjoyed these Brei, which I served with a bowl of homemade chicken noodle soup. Everyone agreed they were really delicious.
