and happy passover!!!!! (although it's almost over)
it's sunday and i am feeling so unfabulous.
i made matzo brei this morning which is a passover tradition in our house. it is way fattening and only ok once a year...or a couple times a year during passover.
here is how it is made.....
enough for about 6 ppl
1 box of matzo (salted is better i think but unsalted will do)
6 eggs (my family uses about 1 egg/ 2 boards of matzo- other people like it more "eggy" and use 1 egg/ 1 board of matzo)
boiling water for soaking
butter for the pan
salt and pepper if you want it savory
powdered sugar if you want it sweet
break all the matzo boards into medium size pieces (each piece should be a little bigger than bite size).
place matzo in a colander.....pour super hot boiling water over the broken matzo and let it soak for a bit- until the matzo gets soft but not mushy.
beat the eggs.
place the softened matzo into a big bowl and pour the beaten eggs over the matzo. combine the matzo and eggs.
melt the butter in a large fry pan.
fry the egg/matzo mixtures in batches until eggs are cooked through (keep the matzo brei a bit wet it shouldn't dry out all the way).
add salt and pepper as needed...or if you want to eat it sweet (i like it salty, keithy and my kids like it sweet) then add confectioners sugar.
it is yummy both ways.
p.s. we are on the martha show this week...tuesday through friday...very nervous about its airing. hope you enjoy it!
