Simple Matzo Brei

Simple Matzo Brei

Giora Shimoni
Matzo brei means fried matzo in Yiddish. During the week of Passover, matzo brei makes a popular breakfast, lunch and dinner dish. While there are fancier matzo brei recipes with vegetables and spices, my kids prefer to make and eat this simple matzo brei recipe.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 4 matzos
  • 4-6 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • oil or butter for frying


1. Pour hot water over matzos. Drain immediately. Squeeze out excess water. Break softened matzo in pieces. Set softened matzos pieces aside.
2. In a bowl, whisk eggs. Add salt. Stir in softened pieces of matzo.
3. In a skillet, heat oil or butter over low heat. Pour egg-matzo batter into skillet. Cook matzah brei like an omelet (turning once).


Serve with strawberry jam.
