Recipe

Matzoh Brei

The best part of Passover is matzoh brei, no doubt about it. Check out this recipe from Bon Appetit, or use your Bubbe’s, then decide which camp you fall into: salty or sweet. Springtime means eggs are abundant at all of our markets, and you’ll also find sweet jams and honey, salty pickles, seasonings and spices from Spicy Lady, and lots more to go on top. Happy Passover!

Ingrdients

  • 2 sheets of matzo
  • 2 large eggs
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Directions

Break matzo into 1/2" pieces; place in a medium bowl. Cover with very hot tap water. Let stand for about 30 seconds, then drain. Beat eggs in another medium bowl; season with salt and pepper. Add drained matzo; mix until combined and a wet batter forms. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Spoon scant 1/4-cupfuls of batter into skillet, making 4 pancakes. Fry, turning once, until golden and just cooked through, about 1 minute per side. Serve with jam, syrup, or whatever the hell you'd like. These rock.
