1-2 pieces of matzo, broken into pieces
pinch of salt
water or milk
Confectioners Sugar, optional
Additional salt, optional
Break the matzo into a bowl and cover with either water or milk. Let the liquid soak through the matzo then drain and squeeze out. Add 2 eggs and beat together, oh yes, and a pinch of salt. Put some butter into a frying pan to melt until the foam stops. Add the matzo-egg mixture. Pat down with a fork. Cook until the bottom is golden. Take a plate that fits over the frying pan and turn the matzo brei into it, return to pan with the uncooked side down. Cook until the bottom is cooked through. Slide onto a fresh plate.
Double or triple the recipe and the size of the pan for a bigger Matzo Brei. I used a pan that could hold two or three servings so mine was very thin. It's also good to have a thick Matzo Brei, in which case you would use a smaller pan or make more batter and use the larger pan. Are you still with me?
Serve either sweet with the confectioners' sugar and/or jam, or salty with the salt. Either way you've got to eat one every year around this time. Then put it away until next year when the craving starts. If you eat a lot of this your stomach might let you know you have overdone it. Join the crowd.
