Passover isn't until the spring, but one of my other favorite Jewish holidays, Hanukkah, is upon us, so I thought it would be fun to make matzo brei for brunch so Kenya can share in his heritage. And just like his daddy, he loves it. Luckily most groceries sell matzo year round so you can easily add this to your breakfast rotation any time of year.


Matzo 2 Large (whole wheat or plain)
Eggs 2 Large
Milk 2 Tablespoon
Salt 1/2 Teaspoon
Butter/Oil 2 Teaspoon



1. In a bowl break the matzo into equal pieces.

2. Cover the matzo with hot water for 1-2 minutes or until softened.

3. Drain and squeeze out excess water.

4. In another bowl, whisk eggs, milk and salt together.

5. Pour the eggs over the drained matzo and mix together.

6. In a saute pan over medium heat, heat butter and add egg and matzo mixture to the pan. Stir untill cooked through.


8. Serve it warm.


- Feel free to make it a sweet dish by adding shredded apples, cinnamon or maple syrup or, you can make it more savory by adding any leftover meat and veggies you may have in the fridge.
