Celebrating Modern Jewish Living Through Food, Tradition, and Family
Matzoh Brei is everyone’s favorite Passover breakfast dish and it’s also perfect for lunch (and so easy to make).
The Backstory: I remember having Matzoh Brei as a young girl. My mom made this mostly on Passover. At a time when bread products are not to be used, mom would produce this for breakfast or lunch. Years ago, there were so many restrictions on what you could eat during Passover and we didn’t have as many options as we do today. Now every thing has a Kosher for Passover label. More of the Backstory after the recipe…
…The Backstory continues: I remember many different dishes but most were made with eggs. We consumed so many egg dishes in those years. Today the cholesterol police would be at your door banning so many products that were staples in a Jewish house. Think Chicken Fat otherwise known as Schmaltz. Times may have changed but Matzoh Brei will endure. There has always been a box of matzoh in my home. My hubby enjoyed cream cheese and jelly on matzoh all year round. I like it with butter and a cup of coffee. This was one of my hubby’s favorites whether I made it for breakfast or a late night snack.
