Matzo brei is a traditional Jewish breakfast made from matzo soaked, softened, and fried with eggs, and it can be sweet or savory. It is a staple during Passover, but it can certainly be enjoyed all year long. This version leans towards the sweet side with apples sautéed in butter and sweetened with cinnamon and sugar. You’ll want to make sure your matzo is wet enough to crumble it into very small pieces. Substitute nectarines or peaches for the apples when they are in season.
