My favorite Passover breakfast
Every Passover for as long as I can remember, we've always had Matzo Brei for breakfast. I think every family enjoys it differently, but this has always been such a warm and comforting memory for me that I thought I'd share the recipe here with you.
Since Passover is quickly approaching.. why not make this dish one morning to warm your belly.
You will need the following ingredients:
- 4 matzos
- 4 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
- 3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter
And this is what you do:
Crumble matzos into a collander, then hold the collander under running cold water until matzos are moist and softened but not completely disintegrated, about 15 seconds. Make sure you gently press out the excess water, then add eggs and salt and mix gently with a fork.
Heat butter in a 10- to 12-inch skillet over moderately high heat until foam subsides. Add matzo mixture and cook, stirring constantly, until eggs are scrambled and matzo has begun to crisp, about 3 minutes.
I usually put some warmed pure maple syrup on top and enjoy it like that. Feel free to use the condement of your choice!
