Matzo Brei

30 Mar

Matzo brei (rhymes with “fry”) is a treat on Passover but is equally as good any time of year. It’s a wonderful breakfast/brunch item, similar to the Tex-Mex dish migas (tortilla & egg dish). You don’t have to celebrate Passover to celebrate good food. I served this with veggie sausage patties.

Time: 10 minutes Serves: 2


  • 2 sheets matzo, broken into large chunks
  • 2 large eggs, whisked together
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • jam and/or syrup for serving (optional)

How to make it

  • Place broken pieces of matzo into a colander and run under hot water for a about 30 seconds. You want them to be moist but not totally soaked & soggy.
  • Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add moist pieces of matzo and cook on each side until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes on each side.
  • Add eggs, season with s&p, and scramble up.
  • Serve with jam and/or syrup as desired.
