Matzo Brei

Matzo brei is genius. It’s the same idea as bread pudding – using eggs, milk and butter to turn dry bread into a delicacy. In this case, the “bread” – matzo – is inherently dry and boring. But softening it, then flavoring and cooking in butter turns matzo into the most delicious pancakes. And it’s far quicker than bread pudding.

Yield: 2 servings
Ingredients
  • 2 matzo
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
Instructions
  1. Break the matzo into small pieces. Place in a medium bowl.
  2. Cover the matzo pieces with very hot tap water. Let stand and soften for about 30 seconds, then drain into a colander.
  3. Wipe your bowl clean with a paper towel and use it to whisk together the eggs, vanilla and cinnamon.
  4. Add the drained matzo pieces to the egg mixture. Using a fork, mix well, until the ingredients form into a batter.
  5. Heat a double-burner griddle over medium-high heat. Add the butter and brush to coat. Spoon the batter into the griddle, measuring ¼ cup batter per pancake. You should get 4 to 6 pancakes, depending on how big you make them.
  6. Fry the pancakes 1-2 minutes on each side, until golden and cooked through. Serve with warm maple syrup.
