This is definitely not the matzo brei I grew up eating but I think my dad will be proud! He was the official matzo brei maker in my house (is that a thing?) and as kids, we always stuck to traditional matzo, eggs, salt and pepper. I didn’t even know there were other ways you could make your matzo brei until I became a blogger and started noticing other bloggers using cinnamon in their versions. Sweet matzo brei?!?!?! Yes please! Beyond adding cinnamon, I realized that matzo brei is just a vehicle to add tons of different spices and flavors (just like latkes) and I’m definitely getting in on that trend. My version today has the flavors of shakshuka, including jalapeno, tomato sauce, cumin and, of course, EGGS! Welcome to the new matzo brei generation.
All of the traditional flavors of shakshuka combined with a traditional matzo brei. I’m all about tradition, right?!?
Comfort food gets a makeover.
I could eat this for breakfast every morning!
