Passover just wouldn’t be Passover in my house without the making of a matzo brei. My own childhood memories are of watching my grandmother cook. She’d throw in a little of this and a little of that, making use of what she had most of.
One morning, I remember her saying that she was going to grate an apple that was a bit too soft into her matzo brei mixture. From that vantage, I created this recipe for my own kids, hoping that they will pass it on.
Cooking the soaked matzo is a bit like making French toast. Once you get the knack of making it, you can vary its flavor by substituting other fruits like firm bananas or pears or even a combination. I’ve been known to throw in a handful of toasted almonds or walnuts on occasion.
Powdered sugar is not normally kosher for Passover, but there are brands that are.
