Recipe Notes

Matzo brei can be served sweet as well. If you want your matzo brei to be sweet, you need to use milk, eggs, sugar, and some butter. Soften your matzo sheets in milk and mix it with the eggs. Instead of chicken fat, you need to cook your matzo brei in butter. Garnish it with cinnamon and some confectioner's sugar.
