Passover Recipe #2: Mama's Matzah Brie

I made this for my hubby very quickly this morning for breakfast, and thought I'd share it with my wonderful readers. It's filling and very yummy too...which is a rare combination for traditional Passover food! There are many variations on this recipe, but this is how my mama makes it.

You'll need (for two servings):
2 matzot (plural for matzah)
4 eggs
1/2 cup of milk
seasonings to taste

Heat a pan with cooking spray on medium heat. Break the matzah into a little larger than bite size pieces. Soak them for a few minutes in a bowl with the milk (I used vanilla soymilk this morning and it was wonderful!). Open the eggs into a glass bowl, and whisk. Pour the matzah mixture into the eggs and lightly beat. Add any seasonings - salt, pepper, curry - whatever your heart desires!

Now, simply cook just like scrambled eggs, by pouring the mixture into the hot pan, and every few minutes push the edges into the middle. Yummy breakfast (or dinner)!

Do you make matzah brie? What do you like to put in it?

Thanks to this recipe site for the yummy picture!

What do you think about microwaving it in a scrambled egg maker? Natalie at work wants to try it.
