Matzah Brei


Matzah brei is a Passover staple in my family. It is easy to make, liked by children, and can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It is best when served with cinnamon and sugar or with jam.


  • 4-6 sheets of matzah
  • 4 eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • oil or margarine


1. In a large bowl, break matzah into bite-size pieces.
2. Sprinkle with a little (less than 1/4 cup) boiling water to soften matzah.
3. In a separate bowl, beat eggs.
4. Add eggs, salt and pepper to softened matzah. Mix well.
5. Heat oil in a frying pan. Cook matzah-egg mixture over medium heat, stirring as if cooking scrambled eggs.
