- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 2
- 2 sheets of matzah, broken into 4cm pieces
- 2 large eggs
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 tbsp butter
- STEP 1
Put the matzah pieces in a large flat bowl or tray. Pour over 150ml of hot water and make sure all the matzah is covered. Set aside to absorb the water for about a minute, making sure they're evenly soaked. You want it a bit puffy but not disintegrating. Discard the excess water.
- STEP 2
Beat the eggs in a large bowl with the salt and add the matzah pieces. Stir to combine.
- STEP 3
Heat the butter in a 25cm frying pan over medium heat until it foams. At this point, you can either pour in all of the egg and matzah mixture, and spread it in a flat layer in the pan, or form into four smaller patties. Leave the matzah brei to set for about 4-5 mins – it should be golden on the base.
- STEP 4
Use a spatula to flip the individual matzah brei or smaller patties over, and cook them for another 4-5 mins until golden brown. Serve immediately with a sprinkle of salt or your choice of toppings.
