My favorite Passover breakfast is matzoh brei, or fried matzoh. There are many versions of this traditional dish, both sweet and salty, but I recommend my father’s creation– a savory matzoh pancake. To make it,  all you need is matzoh farfel (tiny pieces of matzoh), grated cheddar cheese,  and beaten egg. Feel free to use egg whites and low-fat cheddar for a healthier variation, Season the pancake with salt and pepper, and wash it down with a cold glass of orange juice,  In case you want to know the best way to eat the pancake, start with the golden, crispy edge, and make your way through the eggy middle, saving the best part for last– the melted cheddar cheese in the center,  Enjoy.

Serves 1 to 2

INGREDIENTS:
2 large eggs (or 4 egg whites)
1 tablespoon skim milk
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, grated (or buy the shredded variety)
1 cup matzoh farfel
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
non-stick cooking spray

DIRECTIONS:
1. Beat the eggs. Add the milk,  salt and pepper and mix together. 

2. Heat a non-stick frying pan to medium-low heat.

3. Coat the bottom of the pan as well as the sides with the non-stick cooking spray, This will make it easier to remove the pancake.


4. Pour the egg mixture in the pan,  Cook for about 20 – 30 seconds and then with a spatula, tilt the cooked egg from the edge of the pan to the center, letting the uncooked eggs spread out.


5. Before the egg starts to firm up, sprinkle the farfel around the outside of the pancake,  leaving a 2 to 3-inch center. Fill that center with all of the grated cheddar.

6. Allow the omelet to cook for a few more minutes,  until the edges of the pancake get crispy, all of the farfel has set, and the cheese is melted.

These are a delicious and nutritious way to start your day. The great thing about this recipe is that you can make them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The ingredient list is very simple and the only time consuming part of the recipe is mixing the batter up. So if you have an active toddler at home, then you can definitely try out this recipe as they will be occupied with making their own pancakes while you finish up the rest of the preparation.
