Matzo Brei

No recipe image available.A traditional recipe for your Passover dinner. This is a great way to use up leftover matzo.

Recipe 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 use
Sour cream or applesauce (optional)

Cooking Directions:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

Makes 8 servings.

Tip: 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.
