Matzo Brei


  • 2 sheets of matzo
  • 2 large eggs
  • Salt & pepper
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil


  1. Break matzo into ½ inch pieces and place in a medium bowl. 
  2. Cover with very hot tap water. 
  3. Let stand for about 30 seconds, then drain. 
  4. Beat the eggs in another medium bowl; season with salt and pepper. 
  5. Add the drained matzo and mix until combined: the mixture should be a wet batter. 
  6. Heat oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. 
  7. Spoon scant ¼ cupfuls of batter into the frying pan, making 4 pancakes. Fry, turning once, until golden and just cooked through, about 1 minute per side. 
  8. Serve with jam, syrup, or whatever else you might like.
