Easy Matzo Brei [Jewish Recipes]

Good Afternoon Friends!

We’re almost to another weekend. Yay! Lately I have been quiet on here mainly because my cooking has been simplified and I’ve been using up leftovers like crazy. (You know how that goes 😉 ). That said, today I want to share with you a very easy recipe called matzo brei. This is the Jewish version of french toast. It’s the Jewish fry up that is simple to make, and delicious to eat…. especially during the week of Passover when we can’t eat any flour-based products.

I love this recipe so much that I have been craving it over and over. I recently taught the Noob Chef Jr. how to make this delicious dish, and she could whip it together too. So, if my 11 year old can do it, I know you can too. 🙂 Are you ready for this epic breakfast food? Then let’s dive in!


Easy Matzo Brei

Serves: 1


  • 2 sheets of matzah
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Break the matzo in a mixing bowl and soak with a small bit of water for 5 minutes. Drain off the excess water.
  2. Crack in the eggs and mix into the matzo.
  3. Melt butter in a skillet over high heat.
  4. Pour in the matzah mixture. It should sizzle immediately. Add a pinch of sugar and cinnamon. Use your spatula to press the mixture down into the pan to flatten like a pancake. Fry for 2 minutes. (Look for little bubbles cooking throughout the matzo brei).
  5. Then flip over and fry on the other side for 2 minutes. If you have to cut up the matzo brei to flip it over, do it! Don’t worry 🙂
  6. Slide onto a plate, drizzle with maple syrup, and serve hot. Enjoy! You’ve earned it! ❤


  1. I stock up on matzo after the holiday, super cheap, because even stale it makes great brei. Not Jewish but was introduced to it by friends in the ’70s and my former wife is Jewish, my Roasted Tzimmes is to die for. 😉
