Matzo brei, sometimes spelled matzah brie or matzah brei, is a Jewish dish made from matzo soaked, softened, and fried with eggs. It is a universal breakfast but it is most commonly served during Passover, and there are endless iterations as varied as the cooks who make them. Matzo brei (rhymes with fry) can be sweet or savory. In this simple version, the matzo is sweetened with cinnamon and sugar and served with vanilla yogurt, blueberries, and bananas, but you can use whatever fruit that you would like. Try freshly sliced strawberries, chopped apples, diced juicy pear, or sliced fresh peaches.



3 item(s), broken into 1- to 1 1/2-inch pieces


1 large egg(s)

Egg white(s)

2 large


2 tsp, in the raw or regular sugar

Ground cinnamon

½ tsp

Table salt

¼ tsp

Unsalted butter

1 Tbsp

Fat-free vanilla yogurt

1 cup(s)


1 large, thinly sliced

Fresh blueberries

¼ cup(s)


  1. Place matzo in a colander in sink and hold under cold running water for 30 seconds to dampen; drain well and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together egg, egg whites, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Add matzo; stir gently to coat.
  3. In a 9-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter. Pour matzo mixture into skillet in an even layer; cook until bottom is golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. Flip over with spatula (matzo brei may break into pieces, which is fine); cook until eggs are set and second side is golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes more. Serve topped with yogurt, banana slices and blueberries.
  4. Serving size: 1/4 of matzo brei, 1/4 c yogurt, 1/4 of banana slices and 1 Tbsp blueberries
