Passover breakfasts don’t have to be boring! (Though I love me some matzah and butter in the morn’.) But this Cinnamon Apple Matzah Brei has got the others beat for sure!
Here’s a fun fact. It’s really, really hard to make matzah brei look attractive. Oh, I’ll just distract you with apples and egg shells and mini strainers. Then you won’t notice the pile of brown mush with a generous sprinkle of cinnamon I’m claiming as a recipe. Did it work?
But for as ugly as matzah brei is (sorry!) it’s just so delicious.
For those not familiar with this Passover treat, matzah brei is a delightful scramble of matzah (Jewish crackers), eggs, and either savory or sweet spices. Just trust me when I say it’s good. Even though you could technically make it any time of year, I reserve my matzah brei for Passover.
Really, it’s just a blank canvas for awesomeness. Eggs + flavorless matzah + anything = delicious! It’s just math.
This isn’t my first time playing with matzah brei. I’ve done a savory Pizza Matzah Brei and a sweet (and vegan!) Dark Chocolate Coconut Banana Matzah Brei! Get crafty with spices, cheese, glitter!
What would you put in your brei??
