A belated Happy Passover to my readers! Probably one of my fondest Passover childhood memories is of my Mother making Matzo Brei. So in honor of the holiday I present to you my Mother’s Matzo Brei recipe (slightly improved of course). I hope you enjoy!
- 6 pieces of Matzo
- 4 eggs
- 1/8 cup of milk
- 1 tbsp. of cinnamon
- 1 tsp. of vanilla
- pinch of salt
- 1/4 of peanut oil for frying
Put the oil in a large frying pan and heat on a medium-high setting. Break the matzo into pieces and put in a bowl with water (the water should completely cover the matzo). Soak the Matzo for about a minute and then remove the Matzo from the water (I just use a strainer).
Meanwhile in a separate bowl mix the eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt. When the oil is sufficiently hot, mix the soaked matzo and egg mixture. When the matzo is fully coated pour it into the frying pan.
Fry until crispy on both sides (breaking the matzo brie into pieces as needed with a spatula). When finished place the matzo on a plate lined with paper towel to soak up the extra oil. Serve with maple syrup and sugar.
