Matzo is a traditional staple of the Jewish Passover meal. And since so much matzo is eaten during this holiday, it’s vital to find a variety of ways to eat it. This matzo brei recipe is one I learned from my future mother in law. She uses this Passover recipe every year, and serves the matzo brei for breakfast.
This traditional Jewish recipe can be enjoyed plain or sprinkled with salt. Or try it with cinnamon sugar and reduced-calorie syrup. I personally enjoy my matzo brei served with a bit of low fat cottage cheese on top.
