Next week is Passover (April 18 -26) so our house will be free of bagels (see last post) and full of matza. I’m not exactly a fan of this holiday but that’s another post in itself.

Here’s a favorite meal that we make throughout the week. It’s simple to make and delicious too.

All you need is three ingredients:

For one portion – ¬†1 egg, 2 pieces of matza and 1/4 cup of milk (you could add more if you wanted). I used skim milk as it’s all I had -but 2% or homo would probably be even better.

three simple ingredients

Step One:

Whisk the milk and the egg. (simple)

Step Two:

Crush the matza and immerse in the milk mixture.

Step Three:

Put the mixture into a heated frying pan (that has been coated with a little oil)

Step Four:

Move the pieces around every once in a while so the matza gets burnt-looking. Does that make sense?

End result with look like this:

Step Five:

Enjoy with sour cream, jam, or cream cheese. (which is why this dish is so yummy).

NOTE: The traditional name for this dish is MATZA BREI (pronounced br-i).

My friend tells me she has never ever used milk. She just wets the matza with water. We laughed as I had never  heard of just using water!!

As for finding matza: it’s in every grocery store from coast to coast.

To all my Jewish Readers…Happy Passover.

    NOOOOOOO, you are killing our all time favorite FRIED MATZAH!
    No milk.
    Here it goes:
    You simply soak the matzah in water (put it in a colander and run water over it)
    You don’t want it to be soggy.
    Then mix in your eggs
    Then put in the pan
    You can cut it into pizza type slices and flip
    or you can mix around.
    Then eat with jam or some eat it with salt, just not my family.
    And by the way, this is MY families FAVORITE holiday of all!

    Yummy. I’m thinking a touch of brown sugar and maple syrup; whipped cream, clotted cream, double cream….. Mmmm mouthwatering

    Water??? Uh-uh. Matza Brie is essentially French toast with matza – that means milk and eggs. It doesn’t get soggy unless you let it.
    We mix it up, more like scrambled eggs than an omelette and serve it with sprinkled sugar or maple syrup.
    Mmm…lots of great childhood memories of eating this in our ‘new’ kitchen.
