  • Pour hot water into a bowl. Break matzoh sheets into small chunks and soak in hot water, about 2 minutes.

  • Whisk eggs and 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt in a separate bowl.

  • Strain matzoh and shake to remove excess water; stir matzoh into egg mixture.

  • Pour the heated oil out of non-stick frying pan; place 1/2 tablespoon butter in hot pan.

  • Pour matzoh and egg mixture into hot butter; cover and cook until a 'pancake' forms, about 10 minutes.

  • Slide matzoh 'pancake' onto a plate.

  • Place remaining 1/2 tablespoon butter in hot pan.

  • Place a second plate over matzoh 'pancake' and flip plates over so the uncooked side is on the bottom.

  • Lie matzoh 'pancake' in melted butter; cover pan and cook until bottom of pancake is browned, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat and season with kosher salt.

This sounded like an original idea for breakfast so I thought I'd give it a try. It sounded a little bland for us so I added some sauteed onion and some cheese and more salt and pepper. Even with that it was still bland. My husband felt perhaps if you put salsa on it it would be better. I tried it with some sour cream on top like you would do for a potato pancakes and that made it more interesting. I also tried a bit with a spicy sour cream jalapeno cheese dip and that seemed to do the trick. I made two of these since the recipe was for one serving but actually one was plenty for two people. I'll reheat the other one and try it with the salsa tomorrow. Read More

I only had onion matzoh. Added a pinch of onion powder to the egg mixture. Served them sprinkled with a little ground black pepper and sour cream. Yummy. Read More

I added chopped fresh chives and cheddar for extra flavour. I also browned the softened matzoh a bit in oil before adding eggs. I doubled the recipe for a family of 4 and added some milk to the eggs. Read More

This is very good. I added 1/2 banana when I put the mixture into the fry pan. Probably should have added it just before. My timing was off a bit. Be sure to use a non-stick pan. The butter amounts are just about right. Read More
