18 Ways to Use Matzo for More Than Soup
Whether you’re using matzo out of necessity or not, it’s a delicious ingredient to use in all types of meals from breakfast to lunch to dessert. And with this many tasty recipes to choose from — 18 to be exact — you won’t want to reserve the bread’s consumption to just Passover alone. Matzo definitely proves that it’s equally scrumptious in and out of the soup bowl, whether we’re talking cakes, breakfast sammies or even fried chicken. Enjoy cooking your way through this collection of classic and contemporary culinary delights for your next feast.
1. Mostly Everything Matzo With Schmear and Lox (Passover): These crisp-breads are sure to satisfy bagel and lox cravings, and with fewer carbs to boot. (via Breakfast to Bed)
2. Deep Fried Matzo Balls With Wasabi Cream Sauce (Passover): Turn up your next batch of matzo balls with a little fryer action in lieu of broth. Served with a spicy wasabi-based sauce instead of the expected horseradish, this combo is anything but bland. (via What Jew Wanna Eat)
4. Matzo Toffee With Fleur de Sel (Passover): Salted chocolate plus toffee makes this crunchy bark a total delight. Just add a (Kosher) ‘mallow to transform them into irresistible s’mores. (via Whisks and Whimsy)
5. Aunt Gillie’s Matzo Ball Soup (Passover): It’s practically impossible to talk about matzo without mentioning soup. Lots of veggies in the broth and a gentle touch when forming the balls are two tricks for making this stellar version of the delicatessen classic at home. (via Saveur)
7. Boomwelloh Breakfast Sammie (Passover): Using mini boomwellohs (AKA matzo brei) in place of bread is a genius way to serve up these breakfast sandwiches filled with eggs, garlicky kale and cheese. (via I Will Not Eat Oysters)
8. Dark Chocolate Coconut Banana Matzo Brei (Passover, Vegan): Wanna know a secret? The matzo is soaked in wine before it’s mixed with mashed bananas, coconut oil, cinnamon and vanilla. A final drizzle of melted chocolate after cooking takes things to a whole ‘nother indulgent level. (via What Jew Wanna Eat)
10. Matzo Chocolate-Mint Ice Cream Cake (Passover): Mint and chocolate are a solid flavor duo for this ganache and matzo no-bake cake, but feel free to swap in a couple of your favorites instead. (via Martha Stewart)
12. Matzo Almond Fruit Crumble: You don’t need to wait for summer berries or fall apples to make this crumble. It puts frozen fruit to good use, so it’s delicious all year long. (via The Little Ferraro Kitchen)
14. Matzo Ball Potato Chowder: There’s no shortage of cheese in this creamy, vegetarian chowder. Every slurp is sure to take the chill out of your bones and put a smile on your face at the same time. (via What Jew Wanna Eat)
15. Passover Chocolate Pecan Thumbprint Cookies (Passover): Trust us; the gem of chocolate in the center isn’t the only good thing these nutty shortbread cookies have going for them. (via The Nerdy Chef)
16. Savory and Tender Matzo Meatballs: These meatballs feature a decidedly un-Kosher combo of meat and cheese, but it’s a delicious one if your dietary restrictions allow it. Roasted in the oven until golden brown on the outside, they’re practically hassle-free. (via Bake and Baste)
18. Roasted Red Pepper and Arugula Matzo Pizza (Passover): These flatbead pizzas are elegant enough to add to your holiday menu, but easy enough to throw together for a quick meal on busy nights. (via Joy of Kosher)
