Sweet Matzo Brei

This is a recipe handed down from my Italian grandmother. Go figure...it's a Jewish Passover dish! Serve warm with cinnamon sugar or syrup, honey, or even powdered sugar. Double recipe to serve a bigger family.

Ingredients

  • 5 matzo sheets

  • 1 cup milk, or more as needed

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon, or to taste

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar, or to taste

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ cup butter

Directions

  1. Pass each matzo sheet under cool running water briefly, then crumble into a large bowl. Stir in 1 cup milk, eggs, cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla extract to form evenly moistened batter. Add more milk if batter is too dry.

  2. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Scoop a generous spoonful of dough onto skillet and flatten with a spatula. Cook until golden brown on each side, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining batter.

Cook's Notes:

You can make this sugar-free by using stevia and almond milk in place of white sugar and milk. You also can substitute flavored creamers for an interesting outcome!

Use regular or whole wheat matzo, as desired.

Use margarine instead of butter, if desired.
