Matzo Brei With Creamed Spinach and Crispy Onions

Matzo Brei With Creamed Spinach and Crispy Onions created by Darkhunter

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! Foodnetwork.com/eda/recipe. I think that next time I'll try it with mushrooms! :)

ingredients

directions

  • 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.

    You should not be including the Matzo Brei under the heading of Chanukah recipes. This is a Passover recipe. Matzo brei is not made on Chanukah.

    I saw Sara make this on TV and had to try it myself. I've made it several times and will make it again one of these Lenten Fridays. It's absolutely wonderful!

    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.
