    Manami's Note:

    This is a Sara Moulton recipe. She was introduced to the dish in the mid-seventies when she was dating her now-husband who is Jewish. She thought it was a wonderful "breakfast" dish -she started playing around with Boursin cheese - she likes putting the onions on top but we like our onions in and out - so that was a slight tweak! I think that next time I'll try it with mushrooms! :)

    1. 1
      Heat the oil in a medium skillet over high heat until hot.
    2. 2
      Reduce the heat to medium; add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 8-10 minutes.
    3. 3
      Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and transfer to a bowl with a slotted spoon.
    4. 4
      Reserve the skillet and oil in which the onions were cooked.
    5. 5
      Meanwhile squeeze the spinach well, a handful at a time to remove all the water and set aside.
    6. 6
      Break up the matzos slightly and soak them in a bowl of cold water for 1-3 minutes; don't let them get too soggy!
    7. 7
      Drain the matzos and combine them with the eggs, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
    8. 8
      Reheat the oil remaining in the reserved skillet with the butter over medium-high heat until hot.
    9. 9
      Add the matzo mixture and cook, stirring constantly, until eggs are scrambled and the matzo has begun to crisp, about 5 minutes.
    10. 10
      Stir in the spinach and cheese and cook until just heated through.
    11. 11
      Top each portion with a mound of the onions.

      This is deee-licious! I didn't get the matzos crispy enough, but who cares! My mouth was having a party! You've never steered me wrong, so I, also, did my onions "in 'n out." Good choice! Thnx, as always, Manami, for sharing your recipe. Made for My-3-Chefs 2009.
