Passover Recipe: Classic Matzo Brei

  • 3 unsalted matzos
  • 8 cups boiling water
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  1. In a colander placed in sink, break matzo into approximately 1-inch pieces. SLOWLY pour the boiling water over the matzo, soaking it well. Let stand for 2-3 minutes to drain well and plump up.
  2. In a bowl, beat eggs together with salt. Add wet matzo and mix thoroughly.
  3. In a 10-inch skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. When sizzling, add the matzo-egg mixture. Reduce heat to medium-low.
  4. When bottom of mixture begins to set, break it up by dragging it around the pan, from outside edge to the center. Once the bottom is cooked, gently turn the mixture, using a spatula. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until the matzo brei cooks evenly.

Serves 2. Serve with Freshly ground pepper, jam, preserves or sour cream
