Recipe for Matzo Brei. This delicious traditional Jewish breakfast is perfect for Passover since it uses matzoh instead of flour or bread.


  • 1 matzoh
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon


  1. Break matzoh in a large bowl and pour hot water over.   After a couple of minutes, pour water off, squeeze surplus water out, add other ingredients and mix well.
  2. Melt a little butter in a frying pan, add mixture all at once and flatten out into a large cake. You can cut it in the pan while it is cooking, or make small individual ones. Flip it when it starts getting crusty underneath. Don\'t worry if you can\'t flip the whole thing at once, we often can\'t either.
  3. Cook through until well done but still soft. Serve immediately, with brown sugar sprinkled on top, or with jam or syrup.
