Passover is probably a good time to try it. Sort of like French Toast for Passover!!!
*Ted's Note: Matsoh is a kosher cracker-like unleavened flatbread, which comes in sheets or slices and can be found packaged in your supermarket.
(Serves 1 person.)
- One flat piece of Matzoh
- One Egg
- Some oil for frying
(Preparation: 5 Minutes. Cooking: 5-8 minutes)
- Dampen the matzoh just to moisten.
- Beat the egg and then crumble the matzoh into the egg and let it soak up.
- Fry until golden brown on one side, then turn.
Serve it with a piece of ham or some bacon for a multi-cultural effect. Or put some maple syrup on it. Yum!
Another member, Vin, commented:
I had completely forgotten about Matzo Brei. When I was a kid, my friend's mother used to make it for us. When she put the dishes in front of us, she gave us a choice of adding some raspberry (?) jam or a drizzle of maple syrup, but not both. (I also have a vague memory of Michael's mother once explaining
that if you added both jam and maple syrup, it would no longer be kosher. I assume that was a Jewish mother's equivalent of "because I said so".)
*Ted's note: I added pepper and salt to the mixture and served it to myself with a couple of microwave breakfast sausages. The ham, bacon, or sausage additions are definitely not kosher, but sure taste good.
