Happy Passover - A New Twist on Matzah Brei for 2012
Happy Passover and Happy Easter! Tomorrow, I am cooking matzoh brei for my family and wanted to try a new recipe. I do not have a photo for this just yet since I am going to make it tomorrow, but I thought it would be cool to share this with people who like a twist to ordinary recipes.
I usually make matzoh brei with cinnamon and sugar, but wanted to go a slightly more savory direction this year and will be trying peppers and onions into my matzoh brei.
- 5 Matzoh, Sheets
- 1 Green Pepper, diced
- 1 Red Pepper, diced
- 2 Onions, chopped
- 2 tsp Black Pepper
- 2 Eggs, beaten
- 1/2 cup Water
- 1/4 stick Butter or Margine, May could substitute olive oil.
- Soak matzoh in a pan or shallow dish with water. Let matzoh soften. Usually this takes about 15 minutes. Do not oversoak.
- Drain water.
- Slice matzah into 1/8 pieces
- Mix beaten eggs lightly by dripping the mixture onto the matzah. Do not pour. Cover all matzoh pieces.
- Add butter to frying pan and set pan at medium heat until butter is melted.
- Add red and peppers as well as onions. Cook until they brown slightly.
- Add in matzoh egg mixture.
- Cook until matzoh is brown. Add black pepper as needed.
