Matzah Brei

Matzah Brei

Based on a kitchn recipe, this was one of the best matzah brie batches I've ever made.

Serves 2

4 eggs, divided
splash milk or cream
1 dash salt
1 dash sugar, optional
2 sheets matzo
2 tablespoons unsalted butter

Crack all but one of the eggs into a large bowl; add the milk, salt, and sugar, if using; and whisk very well to combine.
Break the matzah into 1/2-inch pieces or smaller and add to the egg mixture.
Let stand for at least 10 minutes, or until matzah is soft and pliable.

Huevos Rancheros

Huevos Rancheros

A tasty and relatively easy recipe with a great classic red sauce. The original recipe linked below uses canned chipotles, but this has been adapted to use more dried chiles, as the heat from the canned chipotles overpowers the eggs.

Sauce

  • 4-6 whole dried chipotles (only 2-3 canned)
  • 1/4 cup canola oil, divided
  • 1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 medium cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 (14-ounce) can crushed tomatoes, preferably fire-roasted (such as Muir Glen)
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro leaves and fine stems, plus more for serving

Bon Appetit called this recipe Tunisian-style eggs, but we instantly recognized it as a close cousin to the Berber Eggs we had for breakfast in Morocco. We tweaked the recipe slightly, and it was delicious!

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 red bell peppers, cored, chopped or thinly sliced into strips

Green Sauce

Green Sauce

This sauce was AWESOME, and I made it all by myself.

Makes about 1 cup:
2 cups unpacked parsley
1 cup unpacked mint
1 cup unpacked basil
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup white wine vinegar or rice vinegar
Juice of 1 lemon

Blend all ingredients, preferably with an immersion blender, until smooth.
If needed, add more oil (and/or vinegar, to taste) to help blend.
Alternatively, double (or triple!) the ingredients to make it easier to blend in a conventional blender. Trust me, you'll eat it all.
