Recipe by Manami
READY IN: 20mins




  • Heat the oil in a medium skillet over high heat until hot.
  • Reduce the heat to medium; add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and transfer to a bowl with a slotted spoon.
  • Reserve the skillet and oil in which the onions were cooked.
  • Meanwhile squeeze the spinach well, a handful at a time to remove all the water and set aside.
  • 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!
  • Drain the matzos and combine them with the eggs, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  • Reheat the oil remaining in the reserved skillet with the butter over medium-high heat until hot.
  • Add the matzo mixture and cook, stirring constantly, until eggs are scrambled and the matzo has begun to crisp, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the spinach and cheese and cook until just heated through.
  • Top each portion with a mound of the onions.
