This post is part of our Friday-morning series on the fun, healthy snacks that kids love. Check out other recipe posts here.

My wife and I have a slight disagreement about the proper way to make
Matzah Brei – a dish that Jews eat during passover. While trying to
Google my way to winning this argument, I learned you can make matzah brei sweet, savory, with salsa, cheese, or just about any way. I also learned that many people get very passionate about their matzah brei.

Well, I decided that this year, Henry is going to learn how I make it.

Henry’s Matzah Brei

4 pieces of matzah
3 eggs
1/2 cup of milk
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
One mashed banana (oops, this didn’t get into my video)
Salt to taste
Oil or butter for the pan

Break up the matzah into a bowl, add the ingredients, mix, cook in a pan.

It’s tasty. Just ask Henry.

And as for cooking with a 2 1/2 year old, my biggest recommendation is
to put all the ingredients in little cups for easy pouring. It makes it
easy and more interactive.
