Looking for a great way to celebrate Passover? Try this Kosher dish that's similar to a blintz. Feel free to mix it up by using  fresh sliced strawberries, chopped apples, or juicy pear slices. 

Ingredients

  • 3 boards matzoh, broken into 1-1 ½-inch pieces
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 large egg whites
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar, in the raw or regular sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 cup fat-free vanilla yogurt
  • 1 large banana, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup fresh blueberries

Directions

Place the matzoh in a colander in the sink and hold under cold running water for 30 seconds to dampen. Drain well and set aside. 

In a large bowl, beat together the egg, egg whites, cinnamon, salt, and sugar. Add the matzoh, stirring gently to coat. 

In a 9-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Pour matzoh mixture into a skillet in an even layer and cook until bottom is golden brown, about 3-4 minutes. Flip over with spatula (matzoh brei may break into pieces, which is fine). Cooking until eggs are set and second side is golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Serve topped with yogurt, banana slices, and blueberries. 

Banana Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Banana Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
