Lotsa Matzah?

I have seen so much chatter out there about what to do with matzah. Some people got lots of matzah for free (I'm thinking of all those stores in the States that give you 5 lbs of matzah with your $50 purchase at this time of year), or nearly free (I'm thinking of a couple of stores here that had cheap matzah with a minimum purchase), and some people  just bought a lot of matzah...

So here are our favorite matzah-based foods:

Matzah Brei (break matzah into medium sized pieces, mix with egg and milk, or egg and water, whichever you prefer. season as you like - half of my family likes this savory and half like it sweet)

Matzah Pizza (spread tomato sauce on a piece of matzah. sprinkle with cheese and whatever other toppings you'd like. Bake for 5 min or so)

Matzah Lasagna (use it just like no-boil lasagna noodles!)

Matzah and Cheese bake: break matzah into bite size pieces. mix with cottage cheese or "white cheese", and some seasonings (I just used salt and pepper). Place in a baking pan and top with shredded cheese. Bake till bubbly.

What are your favorite things to make with lots of matzah on hand?

  1. My family is very happy to spread avocado and butter or home-made cream cheese on matza, and eat that all day long. They also love this recipe for 'Matzah Brai the Yemenite Way' that I got from a former co-worker many years ago. I used 8 matzas instead of 4, but adjust as you see fit:

    "Fill a pot 1/4 of the way with milk. Add about 2 tblsp butter and 4 eggs. Mix in salt and 1/2 tsp sugar. Heat on low fire till butter is melted. Add about 4 matzot broken into pieces. Mix well into mixture and allow to cook on stove - low fire until all liquid is absorbed by matzot and all is cooked well. Adjust quantities according to requirement. Delicious!"

    My friend is a South African, married to a Yemenite man, so I guess you could call this Fusion cuisine!
