Matzo Brei Pancakes
Recipe type: Passover
Serves: 8-10 pancakes
You can still have pancakes during Passover — Matzo Brei Pancakes, that is! Eat them plain, mix in chocolate chips, raisins or fruit, or top with fresh preserves or syrup and you've got one delicious Passover breakfast!
  • 10 full sheets of matzo (I used whole wheat)
  • 6 large eggs
  • oil of choice (I used coconut)
  • salt and pepper
  1. Break up the matzo and place in a large bowl. Submerge completely in water and let sit for 3-4 minutes.
  2. Drain the matzo of all water.
  3. Add the eggs and whisk until well-combined.
  4. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  6. Pour in enough of matzo batter to cover the entire bottom of the skillet.
  7. Let sit for 2-3 minutes or until you see the sides start to brown.
  8. Remove the pan from heat and use a biscuit cutter or a cup with a fine edge to cut out circular shapes. There will be excess matzo. Cook this the same way you are cooking the "pancakes."
  9. Add a touch more oil to the hot pan and flip the pancakes and the extra pieces.
  10. Continue cooking until both sides are golden brown.
  11. Remove the pieces from the pan and onto a paper towel-lined cooling rack.
  12. Repeat until all of the batter has been used.
