Matzo Brei could be my favorite part of Passover. (Notice that the word is “brei” not brie – we’re not talking about French cheese.) Literally “brei” is Yiddish for fried, so the name translates to “fried matzo.” It is a dish from the Eastern European Jewish tradition that is typically made for breakfast or brunch. In my house, we consider matzo brei the Passover equivalent of pancakes or French toast; it takes a bit more time to make than you would spend on breakfast for an ordinary weekday morning, but is perfect for a weekend treat.
Basic matzo brei is incredible simple to make and requires only 5 ingredients: matzo, water, eggs, milk, butter or an equivalent (oil or margarine) for frying.
