At Home: Matzoh Brei and Chremslach

In our house, you know it’s Passover when we’re eating matzo brei and chremslach. They are quintessential Passover foods. So, even though matzoh is available year round, Passover is the only time I make them.

Michael likes his brei savory with onions, red and green peppers, and lots of freshly ground black pepper.

I like mine sweet with apples, cinnamon, and sugar.

Chremslach is the Yiddish word for what are essentially pancakes. The basic batter is just eggs and matzoh meal. I add a bit of sugar and a dash of peanut oil.

Passover ends today. We’ll have matzoh breis for brunch, and then “Good-bye!” to matzoh breis and chremslach until next year.
