Happy Passover - A New Twist on Matzah Brei for 2012

Updated on August 20, 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.


  1. Soak matzoh in a pan or shallow dish with water. Let matzoh soften. Usually this takes about 15 minutes. Do not oversoak.
  2. Drain water.
  3. Slice matzah into 1/8 pieces
  4. Mix beaten eggs lightly by dripping the mixture onto the matzah. Do not pour. Cover all matzoh pieces.
  5. Add butter to frying pan and set pan at medium heat until butter is melted.
  6. Add red and peppers as well as onions. Cook until they brown slightly.
  7. Add in matzoh egg mixture.
  8. Cook until matzoh is brown. Add black pepper as needed.
