close up of fried matzo recipe
  • 1 Matzo board
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh dill
  • 2 teaspoons butter can sub Ghee or EVOO
  1. Break your matzo board into pieces. I prefer larger pieces around 1"-2" square. Place the broken matzo in a bowl and cover with boiling water.

  2. Let matzo sit in boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes and drain.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat egg with salt, pepper and chopped dill. Toss in drained matzo and mix well.
  1. Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add butter or oil. Once melted, add egg-matzo mixture.

  2. Cook uninterrupted for 2 to 3 minutes. Use a spatula or wooden spoon to break into a few pieces and turn. 

    Adjust heat to medium-high and cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes until the desired browning is achieved. (I like my Matzo Brei a bit well done so I will often let it cook another minute or so)

  3. Top with a sprinkle of salt, pepper and more chopped dill, serve immediately and Enjoy!
