Matzah Brei Recipe¶
The quantities are for about 12-14 pancakes.
- 5 matzas
- 3/4 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 4 tbsp canola oil
Break all matzas into small pieces in a large mixing bowel. Pour the salt and the milk on the broken matzas mix and let stand for 10-15 minutes. Add the eggs the mixture and let stand for another 5 minutes.
Heat the oil in a large frying pan. When hot, reduce heat to medium-low.
Create pseudo pancakes, using a large table spoon. Put a heaping table spoon of mixture in the hot pan. If it’s the heap is too steep, flatten it a little.
Leave space between the pancakes: in a large pan you can fry 4-5 pancakes at a time. Fry for about 3-4 minutes, until golden-brown. Turn over to the other side and fry for about 2-3 more minutes. Remove from pan to plate covered with a paper towel to absorb extra oil.
