Matzah Brei (also spelled Matzoh Brei or Matza Brie) is a traditional Jewish dish made from matzah fried with eggs.
It’s commonly eaten as a breakfast food or snack during Passover, when only unleavened bread is permitted. One of our staff members says this is his absolute favorite holiday dish!
- 4 sheets matzah bread
- 1/4 cup hot water
- 4 eggs
- Butter or olive oil
- Kosher salt and pepper
Crumble your matzah bread into pieces into a bowl. Cover it with hot water (about 1/4 cup). This will soften up the matzah. Let sit for 30 seconds and drain.
Crack your eggs into a separate bowl. Whisk together and add a pinch of kosher salt and pepper.
Pour the egg mixture over the matzah, making sure it’s all coated.
Heat some butter or oil in a frying pan. Pour the egg and matzah mixture into the pan. Cook until the eggs are no longer runny.
Serve and enjoy!
