Passover is officially upon us and I am making all the matzo things! And when I say all the matzo, I particularly am talking about my absolute favorite breakfast of all time…matzo brei!
Let me back track. I love matzo brei but my true favorite breakfast outside of Passover is eggs benedict. I could eat that for the rest of my life and be happy..I thank my mom for introducing me to eggs benedict at a very early and addictive age.
Let’s chat about this, shall we. My grandfather made the BEST matzo brei ever, so I am not sure what he would this of this modern creation. He made it simply with a pour of syrup and pinch of salt. Always my favorite and classic. But seriously, have you seen anything more delicious?
Crispy matzo brei is mixed with sauteed asparagus, because..welcome, spring! Then topped with salty lox, perfectly poached eggs and a healthy pour of creamy hollondaise sauce. A sprinkle of cayenne for a heat kick and some freshly chopped parsley and you have a gorgeous and decedent Passover breakfast.
