Classic Matzo Brei

Matzo Brei (the sweet kind!) is something we look forward to every year. There is something special about the semi-crisp matzah pieces combined with the scrambled egg that creates a flavor unlike anything else. After a long Passover seder stretching into the early hours of the morning, you can eat this matzo brei to cure your hangover from the four (or more?) cups of wine.

***Insider tip: Don’t overcook the eggs- they should be just cooked through, but not starting to brown.

Matzo Brei to our Pizza Brei where the matzo brei is used as your pizza crust. Then mix it up some more with either savory or sweet combos of Mushrooms and Onion Brei or Cinnamon Apple Brei
