Buttery, Salty Matzah Brei

Turn your piles of Passover Matzah into Matzah Brei. Full recipe on BigTasteTinySpace.com

I've never seen my mom make Matzah Brei, but she is the only person I think of when I cook it.  Spring break in New York always coincides with Passover so my mom, my sister, and I would decamp to Brooklyn to hang out with my grandparents for a seder and a sleepover. Then the next morning my grandma would make my mom Matzah Brei, and I ignored it.

Up until three years ago I had never eaten pastrami. I don't know how this happened. I'm Jewish, I'm from Long Island, and I spent most Sundays of my childhood eating dinner at a Jewish deli in Brooklyn. For shame, so much shame.
