Classic Matzo Brei

There are no bells and whistles with this matzo dish. Nothing fancy and no fancy ingredients. It is simple, ‘in your face’- ‘give it t me now’, matzo brei.

This is the way my Grandpa made matzo brei when I was a kid and I still lived on the east coast. I would spend the weekend with my grandparents when I was little and was usually the first one to wakt up on Saturday mornings. Before grandma and I shopped all day at the mall, grandpa was was already up and once in a while, he made me matzo brei.

Matzo brei is simple and quick, and that’s the beauty of it. It is basically just matzo + egg and you can have it so many different ways. Now I am seeing people make matzo brei like a fritatta and baking it or making it savory with fancy herbs. But honestly, when I think of matzo brei, I just want it exactly like grandpa made it. Egg+ matzo+ syrup, that’s it.

Method:
