The Temp Tee Fried Matzo Sandwich

Publish date:

As we approach Passover I can’t help but think about my wonderful father and how much he is missed. It has been over ten years since he passed away and every time Passover rolls around I am reminded of his favorite dish.
My father did not cook. I do not remember him in the kitchen ever, except during this eight day holiday where he only made one dish. He made it every day for breakfast and all four of his children couldn't wait till it was ready. I served it to my kids growing up and they loved it as well.
The health conscious world that we live in may not appreciate it; but I was raised with it and it has become a staple during Passover. When you say to yourself “enough with the matzo” try this recipe for a delicious treat.
