Step 1: What You Need
3 sheets of matzah
1 frying pan
honey (to garnish)
Step 2: Breaking the Matzah
You must break the matzah into one of the bowls.
Step 3: Soak the Matzah
Once broken up, soak the matzah in warm water for 2-3 minutes until starting to soften.
Step 4: Draining the Matzah
Bring the empty bowl next to the bowl of the soaking matzah. Grab handfuls of the softening matzah mix and squeeze the water out of it before placing it in the empty bowl.
Step 5: Egg
Beat the eggs.
Step 6: Egg and Matzah
Add the egg to the soaked matzah and stir. Let sit for 5-10 minutes depending on the size of the matzah chunks, until chunks soften considerably more.
Step 7: Cooking
At medium heat, butter the frying pan. Pour matzah into pan and let brown for 5-7 minutes. Flip(careful) and left cook for another 5-7.
Step 8: Serve and Garnish
Matzah brei is generally eaten in one of two ways: savory with salt, or sweet with syrup or honey. In this case, my room mate wanted sweet so we used honey.
